The leader was undergoing treatment at Kathmandu-based Grande International Hospital for last two weeks.
Just one week ago, he was transferred to the general ward from the intensive care unit citing improvements. He, however, breathed his last today.
Subba had been experiencing different problems after undergoing a kidney transplant some years ago.
