KEEPING A PROMISE: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy signing files to enhance benefits under the Rs. 2-a-kg rice scheme and free power scheme after assuming office in Hyderabad on Wednesday.

HYDERABAD: When Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy became the first Chief Minister in the State to be sworn in for a second consecutive term after serving a full five-year tenure on Wednesday, it was the 22nd swearing-in ceremony of Chief Ministers since the formation of the State.

Dr. Reddy is the 14th Chief Minister of the State, while Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy was the first who served from January 11, 1956, to January 10, 1960.

The others who were at the helm of the State were Damodaram Sanjeevaiah, Kasu Brahmananda Reddy, P.V.Narasimha Rao, Jalagam Vengal Rao, Marri Channa Reddy, T.Anjaiah, Bhavanam Venkatram, Kotla Vijaya Bhaskar Reddy, N. T. Rama Rao, N. Janardhana Reddy and N. Chandrababu Naidu.

Longest first term

While Dr. Reddy completed five years and five days in the first term (the longest first term) and commenced his second term from Wednesday, Kasu Brahmananda Reddy too was the Chief Minister for two consecutive terms from 1964 to 1967 and again from 1967 to 1971.

Though Mr. Naidu led the Telugu Desam government for two terms consecutively, his first term lasted four years and the second four-and-a-half years. Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy, Channa Reddy, Vijaya Bhaskar Reddy were the other Congress Chief Ministers who served two terms but not consecutively.

Karunanidhi’s wishes

PTI reports from Chennai:

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi congratulated Dr. Reddy on his assuming office.

Corrections and Clarifications

A report "YSR sworn in A.P. Chief Minister" (May 21, 2009) had a few mistakes. Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy, the first Chief Minister, was sworn in on November 1, 1956 (1-11-1956). Because of an editing error, this date was jumbled as January 11, 1956 (11-1-1956) in the published report. Nadendla Bhaskara Rao, Chief Minister from August 16, 1984 to September 16, 1984 is not mentioned in the list of Chief Ministers and his name does not appear in some editions.
