Political Background >
Turning his defeat in muncipal elections into stepping stone of success, Sayanna emerged as four-time MLA in contonment constituency. He is determined to repeat his previous victories in the upcoming election and putting all his plans into action. He contested in corporation election in 1986 on behalf of TDP but had to suffer a setback.
Nonetheless he continued in the TDP and was entrusted with several of party's responsibilities as reward to his hardwork and commitment. With the then Party Supremo NTR backing him, he tried his luck again in 1994 assembly elections by contesting from contonment constituency and won. He repeated his victory both in 1999 and 2004 elections and registering a hat-trick in the process.
But the deliminatation exercise in Malkajigiri had an adverse effect on his winning chances in 2009 election due to which he had to suffer a defeat. The expectation of his victory by majority of 15000 votes was turned into a harsh reality of his defeat by a margin of 4000 votes in the hands of Congress candidate Dr. P. Shankar rao. But he dusted off this defeat and emerged victorious in election of 2014 by contesting on behalf of TDP from contonment.
 Later on, responding to the KCR's call for creating 'Bangaru Telangana' he joined TRS and now is preparing to contest on TRS' ticket in the coming elections.
