Nadda contracted the coronavirus when he had gone to campaign in West Bengal for the upcoming assembly elections. After coming back from the state, he developed symptoms like sore throat, following which he tested positive.
All Covid-19 precautions like maintaining social distancing and face masks were made mandatory and even the BJP part president wore face masks constantly throughout the rally, but still, he got infected.
It is also worth mentioning that during his visit to the state, the convoy of the BJP chief was attacked along with the party’s general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya. Following the incident, the Union Home Ministry summoned Bengal’s top officials including the chief secretary of the state and DGP to which Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee refused. The refusal followed a serious tussle between the Union and the state, leading to the deputation of three IPS officers who were involved in the security protocol of the BJP leaders.
