Muktsar/Ludhiana, January 19

Former Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, who has been regularly holding door-to-door election campaign in his home turf Lambi, has tested positive for Covid.

Badal was admitted to Dayanand Medical College and Hospital.

Dr Bishav Mohan, senior cardiologist of Hero DMC Heart Institute, said he is Covid positive and had been admitted to the hospital.

“We are performing general tests and his exact condition will be known only once the reports of these tests come,” he said.

The 94-year-old SAD patron, while touring his constituency, hardly wore a face mask.

He met a number of party leaders, commoners, media persons and INLD secretary general-cum-MLA Ellanabad Abhay Chautala in the recent past.

The elderly Badal had last toured his home turf on Monday and cancelled the scheduled programmes of Tuesday, due to backache. However, later, he tested positive for Covid.
