In a tweet, the Prime Minister said, “Praying for the good health and speedy recovery of Dr Farooq Abdullah Ji.
Also praying for your and the entire family’s good health @OmarAbdullah.”
Mr Modi’s tweet came after NC vice president and former chief minister Omar Abdullah posted on micro-blogging site twitter about his father testing positive for novel coronavirus.
Mr Omar Abdullah tweeted “My father has tested positive for COVID-19 & is showing some symptoms. I will be self-isolating along with other family members until we get ourselves tested. I request anyone who has come in to contact with us over the last few days to take all the mandated precautions.”
