During an election rally in Tamulpur ahead of the final phase of Assembly elections in Assam, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday directed his medical team to assist an elderly man in the audience who was apparently dehydrated.
As he was addressing the election rally, Prime Minister Modi appeared to have noticed the man, who was a BJP worker, losing consciousness while standing in the audience. “Can the PMO medical team please help the man in the audience? He seems to need water. Please help him immediately,” PM Modi said.
Pausing in the middle of his speech at Tamulpur in Assam, PM @narendramodi promptly directed the team of PMO doctors to give immediate assistance to an old-aged person, Shri Hari Charan Das, in the rally who was apparently dehydrated.

The Prime Minister travels with a four-member team of medical experts wherever he goes, as per official protocol. The team includes a personal physician, a paramedic, surgeon and critical care specialist. The team is equipped to handle any sort of medical emergency.
At the rally, PM Modi expressed confidence in the NDA’s shot at securing a victory in the upcoming elections. He also laid down the work done under him in the last five years, saying, “The double-engine government of NDA has given double benefits to the people of Assam in the last five years.”
