BJP MLA Raja Singhs gunmen, drivers contract Covid-19

Sole BJP MLA from Telangana, T Raja Singh, is in the news after it turned out on Thursday that his three gunmen and two drivers tested positive for Covid-19. At the time of writing, five more gunmen were awaiting test results.

"It has been five days since my gunmen underwent tests. Five of them have yet to receive their medical report. I have quarantined myself for a week now," Raja Singh said in a video.

The saffron leader questioned the TRS government on the undue delays caused in giving test results.

The situation is rather grim in Telangana, where the test positivity rate is the third-worst in the country, the first two being Maharashtra and Delhi. Fatality rate is double that of Andhra Pradesh.
