A senior Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the director of GITAM University MVVS Murthy, has died in road accident in the United States.

Murthy, a former Vishakhapatnam Member of Parliament (MP), was traveling in a van with four other members of his family. At least four of the five people were killed.

Kadiyala Venkata Ratnam, a social entrepreneur, is reportedly in critical condition.

"The sudden demise of senior leader & MLC MVVS Murthy Garu is a devastating loss to the party and family," said TDP General Secretary Nara Lokesh.

"An unwavering champion for education and employment creation, he touched many lives with his deep compassion and empathy. His was a life well-lived!"

"India has lost a pre-eminent educationist and visionary," said TDP MP YS Chowdary.

MVVS Murthy was scheduled to address former GITAM students in California on October 6.

Representatives of the Telugu Association of North America (TANA) are helping Murthy's family in the U.S.
