Though he is actually from Sathupalli, due to changes in reservation of seats in constituencies, he contested the 2009 elections from the Khammam constituency and defeated his opponents Younis Sulthan and Jalagam Venkatrao.

Having served for some time as a member of the Telangana Legislative Council, in May 2016 Rao again gained an Assembly seat when he won the Palair constituency in a by-election, [6] winning with a majority of 45,676 votes. [7] On this occasion he was a TRS candidate, [8] and was inducted into cabinet in December 2014, serving as Minister for Roads and Buildings.

As a TDP MLA in the Andhra Pradesh legislature, Rao was Minor Irrigation Minister in the cabinet led by N. T. Rama Rao and held the ministerial portfolios of Prohibition and Excise, Major Irrigation, and Roads and Buildings at various times during the successive governments led by Chandrababu Naidu. [1]
