New Delhi: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has cancelled her campaign schedule of Kerala, Assam and Tamil Nadu. She was expected to take part in the election campaign for UDF candidate K Muraleedharan at Nemom in Kerala on Saturday. But the Congress leader who is currently under isolation confirmed that she will not take part in the election campaigns.

It is learned that her husband Robert Vadra has tested positive for COVID-19. Hence, Priyanka has decided to self-isolate as per doctor's advice. At the same time, the latest reports have confirmed that she has tested negative for COVID-19.

Priyanka has released a video message apologising to the people but said that doctors have asked her to be in isolation, so she is following the guideline.

Priyanka Gandhi said, "Just to say that I have been exposed to the coronavirus although the report is negative but doctors have advised me to self-isolate and unfortunately I have to cancel the program which was scheduled for me for Assam campaign today and for Tamil Nadu tomorrow and Kerala a day after tomorrow. I would like to apologise as I will not be able to be there."

She also wished all the Congress candidates for their victory. The Congress General Secretary was supposed to address three rallies on Friday in Assam ahead of the last phase of polling.
