Tanguturi Anjaiah was born in Hyderabad.
He was insulted in public by Rajiv Gandhi, son of the then prime minister of India Indira Gandhi, at the Hyderabad Airport. This was one of the incidents adverted to by N. T. Rama Rao, when he started the Telugu Desam Party whose objective was to restore the self-respect (Athma Gauravam) of Telugus.
When Indira Gandhi replaced Anjaiah from the position of Chief Minister, he is believed to have remarked "I came by the grace of Madam and I am going under her orders; I don't know why I came... and why I am going."
