Vidisha: Madhya Pradesh Forest Minister Gauri Shankar Shejwar today almost fell down after unfurling the tricolour and reading out Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's message during the Independence Day function at the district headquarter here.
"After unfurling of tricolour and reading out Chief Minister's message, Shejwar complained of uneasiness due to low sugar and virtually fell down on the dais after which he was rushed to the district hospital," Vidisha Collector MB Ojha told PTI.
