Gorantla Madhav being a Kadiri CI faced humiliation on stage during Kanakadasa Jayanti programme attended by people of his own Kuruba community. But he received an overwhelming response from his community people. After a verbal spat with the then Anantapur TDP MP JC Diwakar Reddy, he tendered resignation to CI post and contested as YSRCP candidate for Hindupur Lok Sabha seat. He won as MP from TDP stronghold Hindupur. In the recently held Kanakadasa Jayanti, Gorantla Madhav was given honour and respect as MP in the midst of his own community members.
