Nadda said that his health is fine and he is following all the guidelines in home isolation on the advice of doctors. The BJP chief further in his tweet urged all those who came in contact in the last few days, to isolate themselves and and get checked for the deadly disease.
The development has come just a few days after Nadda returned from his two-day visit to the poll-bound West Bengal.
During their visit to Diamond Harbour to meet party workers for the upcoming Bengal assembly elections in 2021, the convoys of BJP chief JP Nadda and General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya were attacked and stones were hurled at his vehicle in West Bengal on Thursday.
Nadda was shown black flags allegedly by Trinamool Congress supporters when he arrived in Kolkata’s Hastings area to inaugurate the party’s election office on Wednesday. The incident took place outside the newly-opened office when about 50 people tried to wave black flags and shouted “BJP go back” slogans when Nadda entered the building.
Bengal BJP President Dilip Ghosh, after the incident, accused Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers of pelting stones on JP Nadda’s convoy.
