Four days after the death of Telangana’s former Home Minister and senior Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader Nayini Narasimha Reddy, his wife too passed away on Monday.

Narasimha Reddy has served as a minister in undivided Andhra Pradesh from 2004 to 2006 in the Congress-led coalition government.

After formation of Telangana state in 2014, Chandrasekhar Rao inducted him in his cabinet as the Home Minister.
