Pending issues

The development of Laksmidevipally project which is a part of Palamuru-Rangareddy Lift irrigation project is still a dream for the people of this constituency. The late YSR and the now CM KCR guaranteed the construction of Lakshmidevipally project but it restricted to surveys itself. Various industries like Iron, Sponge Iron, Pharma and other chemical industries are setting up in the constituency and hence polluting the environment. No measures are taken to control air and water pollutions.

Important places

From 1692 to 1719, Raja Savai Venkat Reddy, the head of the province of Vanaparthy made Shadnagar as his capital and ruled for 26 years. Janampeta which was named after Venkat Reddy's mother name, Pedha Jannama is neighbouring Shadnagar. Shadnagar was formed as an Assembly constituency in 1952.
Burgula Rama Krishna Rao who served as CM, primarily represented from this constituency. All the historic monuments constructed by Raja Venkat Reddy were encroached and disappeared, but the Venkateshwara Swamy Temple on the west side of Shadnagar remained as an evidence. Jahangir Peer Dargah in the mandal of Kothur is an example which symbolises the communal harmony.
Sri Ramalingeswara Aalayam in Farooqnagar mandal of Jogammaguda gutta is known as the Uttara Rameshwaram where a Shivalinga was kept by lord Sri Rama in search of Sita.
