It seems the Political Tourism has cost too much to the Aam Aadmi Party MLA Kuldeep Kumar as an FIR has been registered against him for visiting Hathras. The Uttar Pradesh police have registered a case against an Aam Aadmi Party MLA from Kondli in Delhi, who had tested positive for coronavirus after he violated the home isolation rules and visited the family of the Hathras victim in Uttar Pradesh.
On September 29, Kuldeep Kumar announced that he has tested positive for coronavirus and that he will be in home isolation. “I have a mild fever for the last two days and I got a COVID-19 test done today. The report has come out as positive. I will be in-home isolation. Those who came in contact with me in the last two to three days, please get yourselves tested,” Kumar had tweeted.
पिछले दो दिनों से मुझे हल्का बुख़ार होने की वजह से आज मैंने #Covid19Test कराया जिसकी रिपोर्ट postive आयी है जिसके बाद मैं घर पर #HomeIsolation में रहूँगा जो भी साथी पिछले 2-3 दिनो में मुझसे मिले है वो अपना टेस्ट ज़रूर करा ले !

Five days later, Kuldeep Kumar posted videos of him, saying he is in Hathras, 200 km from Delhi, to meet the family of the 20-year-old woman who died last week. In another video that he tweeted, he is seen sitting close to the family members and interacting with them.
अभी हाथरस में पीड़ित परिवार से मिलकर लौटा हूँ ।परिवार में डर और भय का माहौल पैदा किया जा रहा है।
ये लोकतंत्र और संविधान की हत्या है।

In his tweet, he showed his anger towards the Yogi Adityanath government, saying, “Just returned after meeting the family of the Hathras victim. An atmosphere of fear in the family is being created. This is the murder of democracy and the Constitution. In Uttar Pradesh’s Yogi-raj, there is no law but jungle -raj.”
The Uttar Pradesh Police has filed the case against MLA Kuldeep Kumar under the Epidemic Diseases Act.
