As it was mandatory to get elected as a member of the state Legislative Assembly or Council to continue as a minister in the state cabinet, Srihari contested the recent MLC elections under MLA quota and got elected. Srihari is also holding the education portfolio in the state cabinet.

With Srihari’s resignation, byelection to Warangal Lok Sabha seat will be imminent. This has given hopes to aspirants in the district.
