In 2014, I transitioned to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) to contribute to the newly formed state of Telangana. I was elected as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Adilabad from 2014 to 2018. My focus was on addressing the pressing needs of my constituents, such as better infrastructure, healthcare, and education, while also working to create more employment opportunities.
