Butta Renuka, then with YSRCP, managed to secure a win in the 2014 Lok Sabha election by defeating TDP's BT Naidu by 44,131 votes. She has since moved over to TDP but recent reports suggest the party may not field her from Kurnool as it may be considering giving this seat to Kotla Suryaprakash Reddy, a former union minister who left Congress to join TDP.
