Rosaiah’s last rites today at Kompalli guest house


The final rites of Senior Congress leader K Raosaiah will take place today here at his farmhouse in Kompally. One of the senior congress leaders who was the CM for AP and Governor for Tamilnadu died here in Hyderabad yesterday.

Rosaiah’s mortal remains will be kept in Gandhibhavan for the people to pay their last respects.
Rosaiah was very popular with the Congress circles and was a father-like figure to former CM YS Rajasekhar Reddy.

He was made the CM after the death of Rajasekhar who died in a chopper accident. Rosaiah died due to low BP on the way when he was being taken to the Hospital. Rosaiah was the finance minister several times.

Rosaiah used to give be-fitting answers to the TDP Chief Chandrababu and also other leaders in the Assembly during the sessions. It is a great loss to the Congress party even though he is not active in politics.

He died in the Star Hospitals. Rosaiah was like number two in many cabinets and an advisor to the CMs also. He was bedridden and was suffering from some memory loss also.

Rosaiah was not moving properly due to health reasons. Rosaiah presented the Budget 17 times in the Assembly and was a non-controversial politician. The doctors said that he suffered due to cardiac arrest in his sleep.

No one from his family is in politics. We have to see if one of the family members would come into politics representing Rosaiah.
