'Revenge politics forced Kodela to commit suicide'

The passing away of former AP Assembly Speaker Kodela Siva Prasad came like a shocker for the political circles and it is still unclear whether he committed suicide or suffered a hear stroke.

TDP leaders are deeply pained by Kodela's sudden demise and are reaching Basavatarakam hospital in Banjara Hills. Speaking to the media, few leaders said, revenge politics might have forced Kodela to take such a drastic decision.

"He is a senior most leader and served TDP for four decades. But the YSRCP government tried to defame him with false cases. This has led him to go in depression and eventually it cost his life," said Butchaiah Chowdary.

Media reports claim that around 10:30 AM this morning, Kodela attempted suicide and his residence being close to Basavatarakam hospital, he brought there. At 10:45, Kodela was admitted in hospital but the doctors efforts went in vain.

Telangana CM KCR, Telangana TDP president Ramana have expressed their condolences to Kodela's family.
