Priyanka cancels campaign after Vadra tests positive for COVID-19
New Delhi, April 2, 2021
Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has cancelled her election campaign schedule in Assam, Tamil Nadu and Kerala after her husband Robert Vadra has tested positive for Covid-19. She has, however, tested negative.
She has released a video message apologising to the people, saying that doctors have advised her to be in self-isolation, so she is following the guideline.
Priyanka Gandhi said, "Just to say that I have been exposed to the coronavirus although the report is negative but doctors have advised me to self-isolate and unfortunately I have to cancel the program which was scheduled for me for Assam campaign today and for Tamil Nadu tomorrow and Kerala a day after tomorrow. I would like to apologise as I will not be able to be there."
She also wished all the Congress candidates success in the elections.
The Congress General Secretary was supposed to address three rallies in Assam on Friday ahead of the last phase of polling.
Robert Vadra wrote on Facebook, "I came into contact with a Covid patient and have tested positive, although I am asymptomatic so far. As per the COVID guidelines, Priyanka and I are self-isolating, although she has tested negative. Fortunately the kids have not been with us these days and everyone else at home has tested negative too. Hopefully we will all be back to normal life soon! Thanks for all the messages that have been coming in, it's really sweet of all of you to send us your best wishes at this time."
