Former Prime Minister HD Devegowda, who has tested positive along with his wife Chennamma, said that he is deeply moved Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s offer to get him treated in any hospital of his choice.
H D Devegowda took to his Twitter account this afternoon to inform his followers that and his wife Chennamma have tested positive for COVID-19 and are self-isolating along with other family members. The 87-year-old former Prime Minister also requested all those who came in contact with him over the last few days to get themselves tested.
HD Devegowda tweeted, “My wife Chennamma and I have tested positive for COVID-19. We are self-isolating along with other family members. I request all those who came in contact with us over the last few days to get themselves tested. I request party workers and well-wishers not to panic.”
Soon after hearing the news of HD Devegowda and his wife Chennamma testing positive for Covid-19, Narendra Modi called HD Devegowda over phone to enquire about their health. Meanwhile, the PM also offered them treatment at their choice of hospital. Later, he tweeted, “Spoke to former PM Shri @H_D_Devegowda Ji and enquired about his and his wife’s health. Praying for their quick recovery.”
Moved by his gesture, HD Devegowda thanked Narendra Modi, as he tweeted, “I am grateful to Prime Minister @narendramodi for calling and enquiring after my health. I am also deeply moved by his offer to get me treated in any hospital of my choice in any city. I assured him that I am being looked after well in Bangalore, but will keep him informed.”
