TDP leader Lal Jan Basha dies in accident

Hyderabad, Aug 15 - Telugu Desam Party (TDP) vice president and former MP Lal Jan Basha died in a road accident Thursday at Narketpally in Andhra Pradesh. He was 56.

Basha was coming to Hyderabad from Guntur when the four-wheeler in which he was travelling hit a divider in Nalgonda district, about 80 km from here. The driver was injured, police said.

Basha was the most prominent Muslim leader of TDP and played a key role in the party for nearly three decades.

He was elected to Lok Sabha from Guntur in 1991 and served as a member of Rajya Sabha.

Basha is the second senior TDP leader to die in a road accident in recent months. Former union minister K. Yerran Naidu was killed in Srikakulam district in November last year.

Basha's death plunged the main opposition party into a gloom. TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu termed Basha's death a huge loss for the party. (IANS)
