Nalgonda District of Andhra Pradesh has rich political history and tradition. The Communist Parties have been strong in the region to a larger extent. Though 2009 Assembly elections were huge disappointment for CPI (M), it has managed to send its lone candidates to the Assembly from Miryalaguda Constituency. In other constituencies, most of the parties have retained their seats and voters did not surprise much with extension of loyalties to respective parties. TDP might have lost at Alair and some other segments due to serious internal fights.
Nalgonda district has very senior and most important leaders from both the Congress and Telugu Desam parties. Famous political leaders from the district are Mothukupally Narsimhulu, Gutha Sukhender Reddy, K. Jana Reddy, Uma Madhava Reddy, R. Damodar Reddy etc. The district has 12 Assembly constituencies and 2 Parliamentary Constituencies.
