Chandigarh, August 28

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has gone into a seven-day self-quarantine after two of his party MLAs — Kulbir Singh Zira and Nirmal Singh Shutrana — tested positive for Covid-19 today.

Zira was seen in close vicinity of the CM during the Vidhan Sabha session held today.The two MLAs had attended the House proceedings after getting Covid-negative reports. However, later they tested positive.

Shutrana had not interacted much with any other member in the House and had left within 15 minutes of the start of the session. Zira had mingled with a lot of MLAs and even met the Chief Minister. Panic has gripped all 55 MLAs and ministers, besides the staff of Vidhan Sabha.

Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu said they were on the job, tracing all those who had interacted with these two MLAs, both inside and outside the House. With these two, the total number of legislators having tested positive has reached 32. — TNS
