BJP MP V Srinivas Prasad on Tuesday said he has tested positive for COVID-19. Mr Prasad, a former Minister, said he was following doctor's instruction and there was no reason to worry.
He has also requested all those who had come in contact with him during the last one week to undergo tests and go into home quarantine.
Mr Prasad represents Chamarajanagara constituency.
State BJP vice president and Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa's son BY Vijayendra, who had met Mr Prasad earlier in the day, said he was under home quarantine.
Wishing Mr Prasad a speedy recovery, Mr Vijayendra in a tweet said, "as I had come into his contact, I have taken all the precautionary measures, and I'm in home quarantine. I request all those who were with me to take precautions."
Mr Vijayendra was under home quarantine earlier this month too, when his father and Mr Yediyurappa had tested positive.
