The Congress party was absolutely humiliated in the 2014 Lok Sabha election. Avinash Devineni managed to secure only 39,751 or 3.33 per cent of the votes and Congress was relegated to a distant third. It was TDP's Kesineni Srinivas who crossed the finish line first with 592,696 votes, ahead of YSRCP's Konery Rajendra Prasad.
Much would depend on how the over 15 lakh voters here favour.
