KTR is the current Sircilla MLA and made his electoral debut by winning from Sircilla Assembly Constituency in 2009 and later retained that seat in 2014, and on Thursday he retained the seat for the third time. KTR beat  Congress' KK Mahender Reddy in the Sircilla constituency with a majority of 1,21,758 votes.

In the previous cabinet, KTR was the Minister for Information Technology, Municipal Administration and Urban Development, Industries and Commerce, Mines and Geology, Public Enterprises and NRI Affairs.

KTR has been the face of the government in the state, a report in The News Minute said. He has been praised for introducing several IT and startup-friendly policies and initiatives in the state.

KCR, who led TRS to a landslide victory in the Assembly election, on Thursday took oath as the chief minister of Telangana for a second term in a row. KCR is likely to expand his cabinet next week. The TRS retained power by winning 88 seats in the 119-member Assembly.

KCR won from Gajewal constituency by over 50,000 votes. Prajakutami, an alliance of the Congress and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) won 21 seats while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) bagged only one seat. All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) won seven seats.
