Pending issues

This constituency is backward in education and health sectors. There are no government degree colleges in the constituency. As far as government junior colleges are concerned except in Mothkuru and Thungathurthy there are no colleges in the constituency. Lack of fire station, irrigation water, industries are some of the major issues.

Important places

Thungaturthy is one of the outstanding destinations for Buddhist followers. Tens of thousands of Buddha followers throng to Phanigiri to catch a glimpse of excavated Buddist Stupas and Viharas. During the archaeological diggings many Buddhist Pillars, Viharas, Congregation halls, Chaityagrihas and many more are excavated. According to the archaeologists, it was one of the biggest Buddhism training and Dhyana kendras in those days. It is an impeccable destination for history aficionados and research scholars to know more about the ancient history of Telangana. Spiritual seekers can pay a visit to Yoganada Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple at Arvapalli, Dargha, Miryala Sri Sitharamachandra Swamy temple in Nuthankal Mandal.

Interesting Points

Tungathurthy is well known for the strong leaders, who fought against Nizam during Telangana movement. Many leaders from this constituency played a crucial role during the Telangana Armed struggle. This constituency was affected by Communists and factionism from the beginning and slowly the movement was subsided. Martyr Kasoju Srikanth Chary belongs to Podichedu village of Mothkur mandal of this constituency. There would be a major competition between TRS and Congress in the forthcoming elections. Though BJP, TDP and BLF are in political race but they will not show much affect on elections.
