The election was necessitated due to the disqualification of Konda Surekha who had violated the Government whip and voted against the Government in the no-confidence motion.

In a close contest, TRS Candidate Moluguri Bikshapathi won the by-election defeating his nearest YSR Congress Party rival Konda Surekha by a margin of 1562 votes.
