Hyderabad: BRS MLA from Secunderabad Cantonment Lasya Nanditha died in a car accident on the Outer Ring Road (ORR) near Patancheru on Friday early morning. She was traveling from Basara towards Gatchibowli when the accident occurred.

The incident happened when the driver lost control of the car and hit the divider. While Lasya died, the driver was severely injured. According to the sources, she suffered a severe head injury in the accident.

Nanditha is the daughter of five-time legislator G Sayanna, after whose death, got elected to Secunderabad Cantonment constituency on BRS ticket.

Lasya escaped accident 10days ago

Earlier too, Lasya had a narrow escape getting stuck in the lift while going to attend a function.

She had escaped with minor injuries in another road accident on February 13 at Narketpally when she was on her way to Nalgonda to participate in Former Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao’s public meeting just 10 days ago. Home Guard G Kishore died in the road mishap at Narketpally in Nalgonda district.

In 2015, she entered politics by contesting as a board member from Ward 4 in the Cantonment Board Elections. Her father late G Sayanna was the sitting MLA from Secunderabad Cantonment but he passed away in February 2023.

Lasya Nanditha always had her commitment to carry forward her father’s legacy of dedicated service to the people. Lasya, who also served as a former corporator in Kavadiguda, spent her formative years observing her father's service to the people. Soon she entered the political fray as the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) candidate for the Secunderabad Cantonment constituency.

Her previous role as a corporator in Kavadiguda helped her to win the 2016 Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections. However, she narrowly lost to the BJP candidate, Rachana Sri, by a margin of 1,477 votes in 2020.

In last year’s assembly polls, she defeated Ganesh N of BJP by 17,169 votes.
