Important projects,Institutions

Nizam Sugars which is known as Asia’s one of the largest sugar factories is located in this constituency. Established during the Nizam dynasty, since then, the factory has been providing employment to many workers. Hundreds of farmers cultivate Sugarcane in the area. And the confluence of Godavari, Manjira and Haridra rivers happen in Kandakurthi village of the constituency.

Ongoing Programmes

Nizam Sagar canals development works and Manjira-Godavari river basin lift irrigation works are in progress. Meanwhile, the Mission Bhagiratha pipeline and NH road works are still underway.

Pending issues

Nizam Sugars problems have been continuing since it was shut down for good. This caused unemployment and less production of Sugarcane. So, farmers have started cultivating other crops like Soya and Rice, which has no relevant industries.

Important places

Ali Sagar Lake in Yedapalli, Confluence of three rivers in Kandakurthi, Hanuman temple in Tungini, Eka Chakreswara temple in Bodhan, Narsimha Swami temple in Jankampet, Gautameshwar temples in Binola and Pampa Kavi tomb in Bodhan are a few historical and tourist spots to visit in the constituency.

Interesting Points

Senior politicians in the locality failed to bring agricultural industries. Majority of the villages that cultivate Rice in the district are located in this constituency. Besides Rice, Soya and Sugarcane are the most cultivated crops in Bodhan.
