Doctors have said that Gujarat Chief Minister’s Vijay Rupani’s health condition is stable.
“All his medical check-up reports including EGC and CT Scan are normal.

There is nothing to worry about. He will be kept at the hospital for 24 hours just for observation,” Dr RK Patel, Director, UN Mehta hospital in Ahmedabad said.

Vijay Rupani fainted on stage on Sunday while addressing a rally for upcoming civic polls in Nizampura area of Vadodara, following which he was flown to Ahmedabad and admitted in a hospital, BJP leaders said.

Rupani, 64, was given first aid on the stage after he collapsed. He was later seen descending the stairs of the stage on his own.

He was then flown in a helicopter from Vadodara to Ahmedabad and admitted in U N Mehta Hospital. Prime Minister Narendra Modi enquired about Rupani’s health over phone, said a statement issued by the Chief Minister’s Office.

Modi told Rupani to get himself thoroughly checked and to take proper rest, it said.
This was Rupani’s third political rally during the day in Vadodara.

“Rupani fainted on stage and I gave him a primary medical treatment. He was fine and walked back to his car from the stage,” said Vadodara city BJP president Dr Vijay Shah who was present on the dais at the time of the incident.
