Srinagar: Veteran politician and National Conference president Farooq Abdullah tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday and he received wishes for a speedy recovery from several leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In a tweet this morning, the National Conference (NC) leader’s son Omar Abdullah informed about his father testing positive for the coronavirus and also urged everyone who came in contact with him recently to get tested.

Prime Minister Modi, while replying to his tweet, wished Farooq Abdullah, a Lok Sabha member, and a former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister, a speedy recovery.

”Praying for the good health and speedy recovery of Dr. Farooq Abdullah Ji. Also praying for your and the entire family’s good health @OmarAbdullah,” he tweeted.

Omar Abdullah, also a former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister, promptly replied to Modi, saying, ”My father and the rest of the family join me in thanking you for your wishes and prayers @narendramodi ji.” Farooq Abdullah (85), who received the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine on March 2, is in isolation at his home. Doctors from the SKIMS Hospital checked his vitals and also took blood samples for testing, officials said.

In his tweet, Omar Abdullah said, ”My father has tested positive for COVID-19 and is showing some symptoms.” ”I will be self-isolating along with other family members until we get ourselves tested. I request anyone who has come in contact with us over the last few days to take all the mandated precautions,” he said.

Former chief ministers N Chandrababu Naidu and Mehbooba Mufti, among others, also wished for Farooq Abdullah’s speedy recovery.

Mehbooba replying to Omar Abdullah’s tweet said, ”Very sorry to hear that. Hope he (Farooq Abdullah) recovers soon.” ”Saddened to learn about Farooq Abdullah Ji testing positive for COVID-19. I wish him a speedy recovery and the best of health,” Naidu said.

People’s Conference leader Sajad Lone wished a speedy recovery for Farooq Abdullah. ”Wishing Dr. Farooq Sahib a speedy recovery in his fight against COVID,” he tweeted.
