After many ups and downs in his political career, he finally became the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, in the year 1994. He reduced food subsidies and many more things besides also raising the power tariffs which proved as a benefit to the state. He once again held the same post in 2014 and had since been serving Andhra Pradesh.

In 2003, he survived a landmine blast which grievously injured Telugu Desam legislator and State Information Technology Minister Bojjala Gopala Krishan Reddy and their driver.  Y. S.
