Union Minister Bhagwat Karad, a paediatrician by qualification, on Tuesday helped a co-passenger who was feeling uneasy on a Delhi-Mumbai IndiGo flight.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded the Union minister’s gesture. “A doctor at heart, always! Great gesture by my colleague,” PM Modi tweeted.

A release from the office of the Union minister of state for finance here said the passenger complained of giddiness mid-air due to a blood pressure issue and the former reached out and provided first aid.

Dr Karad helped stabilise the passenger after he fell down, it added. PTI
