Panaji: Goa Power Minister Pandurang Madkaikar suffered a heart attack in Mumbai following which he was admitted to a hospital in the metropolis, a senior BJP leader said today.
Madkaikar, 53, was in Mumbai yesterday for a visit when he fell ill.
He was admitted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai last night after he suffered the heart attack, Goa health minister Vishwajit Rane said.
