Agartala (Tripura) [India], July 21 (ANI): Tripura Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha on Wednesday tested positive for COVID-19 and urged those who had come in contact with him to take necessary precautions.
Taking to Twitter, Saha wrote, "I have been tested Covid-19 positive today. I am absolutely fit and fine with no symptoms. I humbly request all those who've come in contact with me to take necessary precautions."
Earlier on July 8, the Chief Minister took the oath as a Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) from the Tripura Assembly Constituency.
After resigning as a Rajya Sabha MP, he won the MLA seat from 8-no Town Bordowali Assembly Constituency on June 23, 2022.
"In Jubarajnagar, CPI(M) long had a seat, which we could not wrest away from them back in 2018, despite waves of PM Modi's popularity. But this time, we've won that seat with a majority. The public is with us where the NDA-led government is in power in all the states," he said.
Dr Saha said that he will be capable of winning all the seats; left unoccupied by BJP, going to be taken over in the coming 2023 Assembly election.
