Strong Political Presence:

This constituency, which held its first Lok Sabha elections in 1952, remained a stronghold of the Communist Party of India in its formative years, before becoming a vote-bank bastion of the Congress. This seat is very important politically, as the influential leader and proponent of anti-Telangana movements, Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, was elected from here. Reddy, who formed the YSR Congress Party after splitting from the Indian National Congress, is known for his strong adherence to a united Andhra Pradesh. This constituency is part of the YSR district, which has the city of Kadapa as its administrative headquarters. The YSR district has a rich and varied political history, witnessing massive anti-Telangana campaigns.
