Anjaiah rose from a being worker at Hyderabad Allwyn Limited in Hyderabad to become a trade union leader and later Union Labour Minister.[1]

As the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, he was known for his accommodating politics; his cabinet of ministers was 72 member strong.[2] and the biggest in the history of Andhra Pradesh.

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.[3][4]

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."[citation needed]

Lumbini Park in Hyderabad was renamed as Anjaiah Lumbini park on his memory in 2006.[5]
