Adikesavulu (72) underwent a bypass surgery in a corporate hospital in Bengaluru a couple of days ago but could not survive, sources said here.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, Leader of Opposition N Chandrababu Naidu and State Congress President Botsa Satyanarayana mourned the death of ex-MP.
Union Minister of State for Tourism K Chiranjeevi also condoled the death of Adikesavulu, who represented his native Chittoor constituency in Lok Sabha from 2004-09 and twice served as Chairman of TTD, an independent trust which manages the Tirumala Venkateswara Temple at Tirumala, Andhra Pradesh.
