NCP leader and former state minister Eknath Khadse confirmed on Thursday that he has tested positive for Covid-19. He will be admitted to a hospital in Mumbai for further treatment.
Khadse tweeted around 6 pm on Thursday (translated from Marathi), “My corona report has come positive. I request all those people who came in contact with me over the last six days to get themselves checked. I am leaving for Mumbai for further treatment. I am confident of getting better, thanks to all your positive wishes. I will be at your service soon. ”
Earlier this week, Khadse’s daughter Rohini had said that she tested positive for the infection.
Last month, Khadse had ended his four-decade-long association with the BJP and joined the NCP.
