The chairman of the council, Sharif, accepted Pothula Sunitha's resignation who resigned as a member of the Legislative Council last month and sent a letter to the Chairman in protest of the anti-people policies of the TDP. In the 2014 elections, she contested from Cheerala in Prakasam district on behalf of the TDP and lost. Later, Amanchi Krishna Mohan, who won as an MLA there, joined the TDP following which Chandrababu gave a chance to Sunitha as an MLC.
However, prior to the 2019 elections, Amanchi joined the YSRCP while Sunitha remained in the TDP. But a few days later she exceptionally supported YSRCP. With this, the TDP lodged a complaint with the Chairman of the Legislative Council seeking disqualification. An inquiry is underway. It was in this context that Sunita resigned from her post. Sunita's position is possible till 2023. It remains to be seen who will be given a chance in this position. Recently, the son of the late MP Balli Durga Prasad Rao was offered a chance to become an MLC. There is a debate going on whether he will be given this chance.
