Interesting Points

So far, the constituency has witnessed two Assembly elections; in 2009 and 2014. Banoth Chandravathi contended as CPI candidate of the great alliance in 2009 and won the elections. Later, she was rejected to give ticket. So, the MLA crossed over to TRS and contended in 2014 elections but was unsuccessful. And she was appointed as the member of TSPSC.
 
Banoth Madanlal who became MLA in 2014 also joined the TRS party. Eventually, conflicts have been raised between Madanlal and the MP Ponguleti Srinivasa Reddy. TDP candidate Banoth Balaji also crossed over to TRS.
