Somireddy Chandramohan Reddy faced defeat for a record 6-times in Elections so far. In 2014 Polls, He conceded defeat contesting from Sarvepalli Constituency by a margin of around 5,000 votes. Considering his loyalty to the party, TDP Supremo Chandrababu Naidu made him Minister upon nominating to the Legislative Council.

Even after facing so many defeats, Somireddy is determined to get elected as MLA at least in 2019. Yet again, He decided to test his luck from Sarvepalli. To contest the Assembly Polls, Somireddy has tendered resignation to the MLC Post 2 years before the end of his term.

Analysts say, Somireddy took a big risk by resigning as MLC. If he couldn't emerge victorious in 2014 when Pawan Kalyan and BJP backed TDP, Can Somireddy win when his party is contesting alone and facing anti-incumbency? A failure in the upcoming polls would ruin the dream of this Senior Politician. Can he win the trust of people at least in the seventh attempt?
