Rajkot, February 11

Gujarat Agriculture Minister Raghavji Patel has suffered a brain stroke following which he was admitted to a private hospital in Rajkot where his condition was stable, doctors said on Sunday.

The 65-year-old cabinet minister also holds charge of the animal husbandry, fisheries, rural housing and rural development departments in the Bhupendra Patel-led state government.

"Raghavji Patel suffered haemorrhage in the right side of his brain at around 10.30 pm on Saturday in Jamnagar. He was given primary treatment at a hospital in Jamnagar from where he was referred to our hospital," said Dr Sanjay Tilala, a neurosurgeon at the Rajkot's Synergy Hospital.

"He was admitted to our hospital at around 4 am on Sunday and is under treatment at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). His condition is stable," Dr Tilala said.

Raghavji Patel represents the Jamnagar (Rural) assembly constituency.

He had quit the Congress and joined the ruling BJP in September 2017, ahead of the assembly elections that year.
