“I want to inform you that my Covid report has been found positive. I request all of you that all those who have come in contact with me in the last few days, should go to the nearest health centre and get themselves checked,” the minister tweeted.

मैं आप सभी को सूचित करना चाहता हूं कि डॉक्टरों के परामर्श पर कराई गई कोविड-19 की जाँच में मेरी रिपोर्ट पॉजिटिव आई है। आप सभी से मेरा निवेदन है कि पिछले कुछ दिनों में जो भी मेरे सम्पर्क में आएं हैं, वो सभी निकटतम स्वास्थ्य केंद्र पर जाकर अपनी जाँच करवायें।

His announcement came only hours after he caused a stir by abruptly departing the state BJP headquarters, where he was scheduled to attend the core committee meeting. However, party leaders claimed that he had gone because he was ill.

Scindia was in Bhopal on a two-day visit to attend the monthly core committee meeting of the state BJP unit, which he shares with Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

Notably, he had met Chouhan the day before, IANS reported. 

It was the inaugural core committee meeting of his new state unit BJP headquarters, which will serve as a temporary office for the next two years.

Scindia made the statement while in Bhopal for the state unit party’s core committee meeting. He did, however, leave the party headquarters before the meeting could resume.
