Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar tested positive for the novel coronavirus infection on Monday. Khattar appealed to all colleagues and associates who came in his contact over the last week to get themselves tested. He requested his close contacts to move into strict quarantine immediately. The development comes two days before the monsoon session of the Haryana Assembly was to begin. Khattar had already been in self-quarantine at his residence in Chandigarh for the past three days, after Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat tested positive. On August 21, Khattar was tested for Covid, but his test report came negative. He was tested again, Monday, and found positive.
