She called upon party workers and voters of Paleru constituency to fight unitedly along with her and ensure that she gets highest majority in the history of Telangana State in next Assembly elections.

Special focus on Khammam district
Sharmila specially focused on Khammam district from day one where there has a significant number of YSR’s followers and he enjoys good charisma in the district. Many leaders emerged victorious by displaying the photo of late YSR. Sharmila cleverly said that it was the demand from the people that she should contest from Paleru and hence the decision.
There were speculations earlier that Sharmila will contest from two constituencies in Telangana – one Secunderabad and the other Paleru. But party sources say after repeated surveys by the experts, Sharmila is keen on contesting only for one seat and that is Paleru. Party is expecting exodus in coming days from all parties. We have to wait and see until last minute, said a YSRTP leader.
