Paul, who is also a well-known fashion designer, had been touring districts regularly to lead street protests and undertake campaigns against the ruling TMC.
She attended party programmes at state BJP headquarters here earlier this week.
“I have been diagnosed as Covid Positive. I would request everyone who has met me in the last 5 days to get…tested. Thank You,” Paul wrote on Facebook.
Earlier this month, BJP MPs Sukanta Majumdar and Jayanta Roy had tested positive for the disease.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
