In a video that went viral, Meghwal had claimed that a papad brand could help boost a person’s immunity and fight coronavirus.

Union minister Arjun Ram Meghwal, who had claimed that a brand of papad could help produce antibodies to fight coronavirus, on late Saturday night said he’d tested positive for COVID-19.

Meghwal, the minister of state for heavy industries and parliamentary affairs, said he was tested twice after developing COVID-19 symptoms and found to be positive in the second report.

Meghwal, the BJP MP from Bikaner, said his health “is fine” and that he has been admitted to AIIMS Delhi.

“After developing symptoms of COVID-19 I had undergone a test and was found positive in the second report. On the advice of doctors, I got admitted to AIIMS and I request all those who came in contact with me to take care of their health,” he said in a tweet in Hindi.

In a video that went viral, Meghwal had claimed that a papad brand could help boost a person’s immunity and fight coronavirus.

“The papads, bhujia, and rasgullas of Bikaner are popular. In support of VocalForLocal, I urge you to support it and local products in your area so that the campaign can be taken forward,” Meghwal had also said in a tweet.

In the video, Meghwal was seen wishing the brand’s owner Sunil Bhansali well on the launch of the product, saying he hopes the venture will be “successful” under the Atmanirbhar Bharat initiative launched by the Central government, as per Indian Express.

Another MP from Rajasthan and Union minister Kailash Chaudhary also recently tested positive for COVID-19.
