Former Rajasthan chief minister and BJP leader Vasundhara Raje on Friday, 20 March, announced that she and her son Dushyant Singh have self-quarantined themselves after they recently attended a dinner party in Lucknow, at which singer Kanika Kapoor was also present.
Kapoor announced on Friday that she had tested positive for COVID-19.
Raje also tweeted the same in Hindi.
