Chandrababu Naidu consoles Laljan Basha death - Sakshi Post

Former Member of Parliament S M Laljan Basha of Telugu Desam Party was killed in a road accident at Narketpalli on the Hyderabad-Vijayawada National Highway in the wee hours of Thursday, police said.

Basha was on his way to his hometown Guntur when the SUV he was travelling in hit the road divider and turned turtle, killing him on the spot. The vehicle driver sustained serious injuries, police said. Basha was elected to Lok Sabha from Guntur in 1991 in a stunning victory over veteran parliamentarian Acharya N G Ranga.

He, however, lost subsequent elections to Lok Sabha from Guntur and Narsaraopet constituencies. Basha was later elected to Rajya Sabha. He served as politburo member of Telugu Desam Party and was currently its Vice President.

TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu has expressed shock over the tragic death of Basha. TDP MPs N Harikrishna, C M Ramesh, Y S Chowdary, MLC Yanamala Ramakrishnudu and other senior leaders also mourned Basha's death.

Basha's death plunged the main opposition party into gloom.

Naidu who rushed to Nalgonda, termed his death a huge loss. Leaders cutting across party affiliations condoled the death of Basha.

After an autopsy at a government hospital in Nalgonda, the body was shifted to Guntur where the burial will take place Friday.
