Rayalaseema stalwart, Nandyala MLA Bhuma Nagi Reddy died on Sunday after suffering a severe cardiac attack. He suffered the attack while in sleep and breathed his last undergoing treatment at a hospital in Nandyala town.
Doctors and the family confirmed the death of Bhuma Nagi Reddy at noon.
The three-time MP and sitting MLA from Nandyala, Bhuma joined TDP last year after winning on a YSR Congress Party ticket in the 2014 elections. Reddy’s wife Shobha Nagireddy, who herself was a four-time MLA died in a tragic accident in a car accident on her way back from an election campaign during 2014 Assembly elections.
Reddy’s daughter Akhilapriya, MLA from Allagadda, is seemingly distressed by father’s sudden break down as she already lost her mother.
It is learnt that Bhuma was upset with the treatment meted out to him by Chandrababu Naidu who reportedly promised him a prominent position or ministry at the time of joining TDP last year.
Bhuma got operated twice earlier for heart ailment and this was the third time. Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu is personally monitoring the health condition of his party leader and ordered to use a helicopter if need be to airlift him for a better treatment at either Bengaluru or Hyderabad.
