Joining the list of influential state politicians hit by the deadly viral infection, TRS key leader and Telangana Finance Minister Harish Roa tested positive for coronavirus. Sources confirmed that though the CM’s nephew didn’t carry any symptoms he was tested as a part of the protocol which later turned positive.
With assembly sessions right around the corner, it has become mandatory for all the MLAs to take corona tests as a part of which samples of Harish Rao were also collected. While an official confirmation is awaited, it was learnt that Harish Rao’s office has instructed the health officials to trace the primary and secondary contacts to get tested.
It can be noted that over 20 Telangana leaders were already tested positive while tensions ran high with the state topping the list of states with high positivity rate. Home Minister Mahmood Ali, Assembly Deputy Speaker Padmarao and Mayor Bonthu Rammohan are among the few leaders who testes positive.
