In this term, Kodela left a mark of his own in Sattenapalle with improving infrastructure in Police Station, Government Hospital, Establishing NTR Lake in Railway Station Road, Burial Grounds and building 20,000 Toilets in his constituency. The response for the Swachh Bharat call given by Kodela in Sattenapalle was over-whelming.
On the other hand, Narasaraopeta MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao sought Sattenapalle MLA Ticket for his Son. Kodela has directly questioned Rayapati, 'How could you ask the seat of a Sitting MLA?'.
Still, Rayapati is very particular about fielding his Son in Sattenapalle. He already began holding talks with the YCP Leaders to change the party if there is a clear assurance on the ticket.
