The incident occurred when Ms Kavitha, daughter of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, was addressing her supporters using a microphone from an open-top vehicle. Suddenly, she turned around and fell down.
According to a statement released by Ms Kavitha’s team, she fell unwell due to dehydration and that the campaign restarted after a short break.
