Mumbai, Dec 7 (PTI) Hard work takes a toll on health, NCP chief Sharad Pawar said Friday as he asked Union minister Nitin Gadkari to take care.

Gadkari fainted during a public event in Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar district earlier in the day.

“Sometimes hard work takes a toll on health! @nitin_gadkari ji please take care. I wish you a very good health!!” Pawar said on Twitter.

Gadkari is known to enjoy an excellent rapport with the NCP supremo.

Meanwhile, Gadkari’s visit to Goa on December 10 had been cancelled, state Public Works Department Minister Sudin Dhavalikar said in Panaji.

Gadkari was to inaugurate a bridge across the Khandepar river in North Goa district on December 10.

“I have received communication from Gadkari’s office that he has a meeting in the national capital on December 10.

Also, due to his health condition, he will not be able to come to Goa,” Dhavalikar told PTI.

A fresh date for inauguration would be announced later, he said, adding that in any case it would take place before December 19, the Goa Liberation Day.
