Former Samajwadi Party MP Dimple Yadav has tested positive for COVID-19. In a tweet, the wife of former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said she is fully vaccinated; however, she is in self-isolation.
"I got a Covid test done, whose report is positive. I am fully vaccinated and not showing any symptoms. For the safety of myself and others, I have isolated myself," Ms Yadav tweeted in Hindi.
"All the people who have met me recently are requested to get their test done soon," she said.
मैंने कोविड टेस्ट कराया जिसकी रिपोर्ट पॉजिटिव है।— Dimple Yadav (@dimpleyadav) December 22, 2021
मैं पूरी तरह से वैक्सिनेटेड हूं और कोई भी लक्षण अभी दिखाई नहीं दे रहे है।
अपनी और दूसरों की सुरक्षा की दृष्टि से मैंने खुद को अलग कर लिया है।
हाल फिलहाल मुझसे मिलने वाले सभी लोगों से अनुरोध है कि वे अपना टेस्ट जल्द कराएं।
It is not known whether Akhilesh Yadav has got himself vaccinated. He had said he would get vaccinated after his father Mulayam Singh Yadav decided to get the jab.
With his wife and daughter Covid-positive, this could impact Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav's campaign ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election to be held early next year.
