Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, who went into self-isolation after attending a party with singer Kanika Kapoor in Lucknow, has tested negative for coronavirus. On Friday, Vasundhara, along with her son Bharatiya Janata Party MP Dushyant Singh, went in self-isolation after Kanika, whom they had met in Lucknow, was found to be positive for COVID-19.

However, the mother-son duo will continue to be in isolation for 15 days.

On Saturday, Vasundhara took to Twitter to share the news and wrote: "After conducting a #Covid19 test, I am happy to inform you that the results came back negative. However, as a preventive measure, my son and I will continue to be in isolation for 15 days."

"A lot of you checked up on me and I appreciate your concern. I want to thank you for your prayers and good wishes. They are what keep me going," she said.

Kanika, who returned from London recently, announced on Friday that she had tested positive for the novel coronavirus, adding she and her family were under quarantine.
