The Former MLA was admitted to the Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee Hills after he developed symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 following which the doctors collected his swab samples for further testing.
The medical examinations declared the saffron leader positive and he was shifted to a special ward and samples of the leader's wife and son were sent for virus testing and the results are awaited.
