Meanwhile, the speculations over Sandra switching loyalties to Telangana Rashtra Samithi still continue in the district. It may be recalled that Sandra won on Telugu Desam Party ticket in the Assembly elections held in December.

The Congress and TDP which were part of grand alliance Mahakutami was defeated all over the State except for Khammam, where two of TDP candidates won, with one of them being Sandra Venkata Veeraiah from the Sathupally constituency.
