CHITRADURGA/BENGALURU: There were anxious moments when Union chemicals and fertilizers minister DV Sadananda Gowda fainted after getting down from a car in Chitradurga in central Karnataka on Sunday.

After he was found normal, Gowda was rushed to Bengaluru —about 200km from Chitradurga —in an ambulance through a zero-traffic corridor for examination at a hospital in Hebbal. His condition is stable, doctors said.
