JP Nadda, National President of BJP, Tests Positive for Novel Coronavirus

Jagat Prakash Nadda, national chair of the Bharatiya Janata Party, said on Sunday that he tested positive for the new coronavirus. “Having the initial symptoms of the crown, I got tested and the report came back positive,” wrote Nadda on the social media platform Twitter. “My health is fine, following all the guidelines in home isolation on the advice of doctors,” he added.

The BJP boss also urged everyone who had been in contact with him recently to get checked out. “My request is, whoever you have contacted in the last few days, please isolate yourself and have it reviewed,” he said.

Nadda’s convoy was stoned last week by alleged Trinamool Congress workers in Sirakol, in the Diamond Harbor area of ​​southern Parganas’s 24th district, where he had gone to address a demonstration. Nadda called the attack “unprecedented” and claimed that the state had slipped into “total anarchy and goonda raj.”

“Bengal has descended into an era of tyranny, anarchy and darkness under the Trinamool government. The way in which political violence has been institutionalized and taken to the extreme in West Bengal under the TMC government is sad and worrying,” said Amit Shah. , Minister of the Interior, tweeted.

Seven people were arrested in West Bengal for their alleged involvement in the attack, according to officials.

India reported 30,254 new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours, according to data released by the union’s ministry of health and family welfare. With 391 new deaths, the death toll from COVID-19 in India rose to 1.43,019. The active number of coronavirus cases continued to decline. India currently has 3.6 lakh of active coronavirus cases. The total number of recovered coronavirus patients stood at 93,57,464. “The drop in active cases has been possible because recoveries exceed daily new cases and the low number of deaths per day,” the ministry said in a statement.
