Minister for Finance Tanner Harish Rao has been reportedly tested negative for Coronavirus. He has been under home quarantine since he was tested positive on September 7 during tests conducted at assembly before the commencement of the session.
Harish Rao could not even attend the ongoing Assembly sessions due to his home quarantine. People in his home constituency Siddipet who have prayed for his speedy recovery are now in a celebration mood as he was tested negative.
In view of this, it is said that Harish Rao is likely to attend the assembly sessions from Monday. However, attempts to reach him on mobile proved futile as he did not tweet to this effect.
