People of his Dubbaka Assembly constituency and the district are in a state of shock on hearing the news of Ramalinga Reddy's death and struggling to come to terms with it.

Known as one of those very close to TRS chief and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, Reddy also took an active part throughout the separate statehood agitation that his party spearheaded over the last decade.

A four-time MLA, Ramalinga Reddy had been winning continuously from Dubbaka since the time he first contested from here.

Several party leaders including ministers KT Rama Rao, E Dayakar Rao, A Indrakaran Reddy, SC, ST commission chairman E Srinivas, CM KCR's political secretary S Subhash Reddy and others expressed condolences on the death of Ramalinga Reddy.

The leaders said his demise was a big loss for TRS and people of his constituency.
