Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) on Monday.

"I was tested for novel coronavirus today. My test report has returned positive," Khattar said in a tweet.

"I appeal to all colleagues and associates who came in my contact over the last week to get themselves tested. I request my close contacts to move into strict quarantine immediately," he added.

The development is significant as the two-day monsoon session of the state legislative Assembly is scheduled be held on August 26-27.

Earlier in the day, Assembly Speaker Gian Chand Gupta had tested positive for coronavirus.

Three MLAs had also tested positive earlier, and two of them are still undergoing treatment.
