Ex-minister Mukesh Goud is dead

Former minister in combined Andhra Pradesh and senior Congress leader from Hyderabad Mula Mukesh Goud, passed away on Monday afternoon after battling with cancer for over two years.

Mukesh Goud, who was popularly known as one of the “Hyderabad Brothers” along with another former minister and present Khairatabad MLA Danam Nagender, was 60 years. He is survived by his wife, two sons and a daughter.

A mass leader in Hyderabad, Mukesh Goud won the assembly elections three times from Maharaj Gunj assembly constituency till 2014. He, however, lost to BJP’s T Raja Singh in the last two terms from Goshamahal constituency.

He started his career in politics as a councillor in 1986 and became the general secretary of the Youth Congress in 1988.

He served as BC Welfare Minister in 2007 and marketing minister in 2009. He is a nephew of former home minister T Devender Goud.

After the Congress party’s debacle in 2014 assembly elections, Mukesh made a desperate bid to join the Telangana Rashtra Samithi before 2018 elections along with Nagender, but he did not succeed.

Apparently, the TRS bosses refused to give tickets to both him and his son Vikram Goud. He contested on the Congress ticket but lost the election again.

The last time he was seen in public was during the Lok Sabha elections, when he cast his vote.
