Former MLA and CPI leader Desini Chinna Mallaiah passed away at the Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) in the wee hours of Saturday after a prolonged illness.

The 87-year-old four-time MLA is survived by his wife, two sons and four daughters.

His funeral was held in the afternoon.

Mallaiah was elected for four terms as an MLA from Indurthi in the erstwhile Karimnagar district on a CPI ticket, three times consecutively. He was with the CPI for five decades, and resigned from the party in 2000 to help KCR set up the TRS. He was known for his simple life despite being an MLA.

Condoling his death, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao recalled that Mallaiah had played a key role in the separate Telangana agitation. He conveyed his sympathies to the bereaved family members.

Telangana BJP president and MLA K Laxman said the CPI leader had worked tirelessly for the welfare of the toddy-tapping community in united Andhra Pradesh.

Telugu Desam Party National General Secretary E Peddi Reddy, too, condoled Mallaiah's demise. Reddy said that Mallaiah had earned the name of Praja Bandhu for his efforts towards the upliftment of the poor and the downtrodden sections. He had also worked with the TDP to find solutions to the burning problems of the day, Reddy said.
