Bengaluru: Former Minister and Congress candidate for Sira bypolls T B Jayachandra on Monday said he has tested positive for COVID-19 and has been hospitalized. The results for Sira in Tumakuru district, along with Rajarajeshwari Nagar in the city, will be declared on Tuesday.

“My wife was tested COVID positive, so I also underwent a test and the report has confirmed that I”m too positive. So it will be difficult for me to attend the counting tomorrow,” Jayachandra said in a video message on his twitter handle.

He also requested his supporters to attend the counting process in his absence and expressed confidence about victory. Jayachandra has been admitted to a private hospital in the city. The byelection had been necessitated in Sira following the death of JD(S) legislator B Sathyanarayana in August.
