Shobha was shifted to Suraksha hospital in Nandyal and after getting preliminary treatment she was moved to Care Hospital in Hyderabad, according to Sakshi Post. She was in critical condition and went into a coma. Doctors at the hospital put her on ventilator and tried to revive her.
Despite doctors' efforts, Shobha passed away on Thursday morning. She is survived by her husband Bhuma Nagireddy and three children.
Shobha and her husband were once top leaders in the Telugu Desam Party. But after actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi floated his Praja Rajam Party, Shobha quit TDP and joined PRP. She contested in the elections and won as an MLA.
However, she later joined the YSR Congress and was active in the party. She was reportedly amongst the top leaders of the party.
