Former Union external affairs minister and four-time Chief Minister Madhavsinh Solanki was on Wednesday admitted to U N Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre in the city after he complained of chest pain, but doctors said his condition was stable.
Chief Minister Narendra Modi and state Congress president Arjun Modhwadia were among the top politicians who visited Solanki in the hospital.

He is also a diabetes patient. Stating that Solanki's condition was stable, the hospital authorities said he underwent coronary angiography after admission.
