In 1989, Congress candidate Koppana Venkata Chandra Mohanarao won the seat. He was followed by TDP’s Venna Nageswara Rao in 1994, Independent Sangisetty Veera Bhadra Rao in 1999, BJP’s Pendem Dorababu in 2004, Praja Rajyam’s Vanga Geetha in 2009, Independent SVSN Varma in 2014, and YCP’s Pendem Dorababu in 2019.

Going by this pattern, Pawan Kalyan may win this time in this constituency. On top of that, the majority of voters in this region are from his Kapu community and it will be an advantage for him.
