Obituary: R.I.P, Shobha Nagi Reddy - Sakshi Post

On Thursday, one of the most dynamic, loved, and gutsy women leaders of the state was brutally taken away from the state, her family and her people.

Shobha, the Allagadda MLA and YSRCP deputy floor leader in state assembly, breathed her last at 11:05 on Thursday morning at Care Hospital, after meeting with a severe accident.

Born to former minister SV Subba Reddy on November 16, 1968 in Allagadda, Shobha's entry and consequent rise in politics was pre-destined.

She entered politics in 1996, and went on to carve a niche for herself in politics. The very next year she won the by election, contesting on TDP ticket. She again won general election as MLA from TDP.

In 1986, she tied the knot with politician Bhuma Nagi Reddy. 
When actor Chiranjeevi launched Praja Rajyam Party, Shoba joined the party and, in a clear testimony of her popularity, went on to win with 61,555 votes against Congress candidate Gangula Pratap Reddy. 

Incidentally, she is the first woman Chairman to head APSRTC. 

On Wednesday, the leader sustained serious head and rib injuries after her car, in a bid to escape driving into a heap of paddy kept in the middle of the road, stopped suddenly and overturned four times. She was thrown out of the car because of pressure.
