He was taken to Basavatarakam Hospital - which he had set up with actor-politician Balakrishna - where doctors confirmed his death.

Mr Rao became Speaker in 2014 after the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh to create Telangana. The six-time MLA - he won from Narsaraopet five times and Sattenapalli in 2014 - has also served as the home minister and the panchayat raj minister.

Mr Rao joined the TDP in 1983. He is survived by two sons and a daughter.

Mr Rao, who was born in a farmer’s family, went on to become a doctor after graduating from Guntur Medical College.
