Union minister Arjun Ram Meghwal, last month made headlines in process of promoting “Bhabhiji” papad claiming that eating the “papad” will help fight the deadly coronavirus, tested positive for Covid-19. Meghwal was admitted to the AIIMS after he complained of difficulty in breathing.

Only recently, a video had gone viral on social media in which Arjun Meghwal could be seen claiming that a particular brand of ‘papad’ had a role in boosting the immunity and antibodies that could help cure COVID-19.
Talking about the ‘Bhabhiji papad’, the Union Minister said, “Under the Aatmanirbhar Bharat initiative, a papad manufacturer has come up with this product that will aid the formation of antibodies to fight the coronavirus. This papad will prove useful in the fight against coronavirus.”
