Chandigarh, August 27

As the number of Covid-positive MLAs/ministers rose to 29, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today appealed to all legislators who had come in contact with them to avoid attending the one-day Vidhan Sabha session tomorrow.

Protests by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), led by their MLAs, were endangering the lives of people, Capt Amarinder said, pointing to the AAP dharnas in various parts of the state since August 20. The Chief Minister reiterated his appeal to all political parties to refrain from physical protests at this critical juncture, when cases in the state were rising and projected to see a major spike in the coming weeks.

The Chief Minister has also ordered Truenat and RAT machines for early results, to be installed at the Vidhan Sabha premises as well as Punjab Bhawan and MLAs’ Hostel, for testing ahead of the session. Only those testing negative for Covid within 48 hours prior to the start of the session will be allowed to attend it.
