Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor, who has been tested positive for COVID-19 had attended several social gatherings after her return from London. These parties were attended by several VIPs, politicians and bureaucrats who are now in a panic situation.
Dushyant Singh, who is an MP, and his mother, former Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje, have both quarantined themselves in their houses and are being tested for the virus.
Vasundhara Raje took to Twitter and wrote, “While in Lucknow, I attended a dinner with my son Dushyant & his in-laws. Kanika, who has unfortunately tested positive for #Covid19 was also a guest. As a matter of abundant caution, my son & I have immediately self-quarantined and we’re taking all necessary precautions.”
BJP MP Varun Gandhi has quarantined himself because he was sitting next to Dushyant Singh in Lok Sabha and had also attended a birthday party together. Other people who are quarantining themselves are TMC MP Derek O’Brien, Apna Dal’s Anupriya Patel and Congress leader Deepender Hooda.
Even UP health minister Jai Pratap Singh has also been put under quarantine as he also attended a party where Kanika Kapoor was a guest. After attending the party, he came in contact with three MLAs, district officials and at least 50 media personnel as he held a press conference in Gautam Buddh Nagar (Noida) on Thursday.
