He represented the Amberpet constituency in the Legislative Assembly from 2004 to 2018 and has been a Member of Parliament for Secunderabad since 2014.

In his first term as a Union Minister, Kishan Reddy held multiple portfolios, including the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Development of the North Eastern Region (DoNER).

In July 2023, he was appointed the Telangana BJP President. Under his leadership, the BJP contested the Assembly elections in 2023, increasing its seats from just one in 2018 to eight. Similarly, the number of BJP MPs from Telangana rose from four in 2019 to eight in 2023. His second term in the Union cabinet appears to be a reward for his achievements.
