Unfortunately, it didn't work as planned, as he couldn't control the Shukaku inside himself, making him attack innocent bystanders. This lead to his father sending assassins to attack him until finally he learned that he was all alone. He went on killing sprees in order justify his own existence. This caused him to control the beast inside him.
However, during the Chunin Exams, he met Naruto Uzumaki, another child with a beast inside him (the Nine-Tails), whose dedication to friends and mentors defeated him in a long combat. Realizing that friends made Naruto stronger, he gave up is original ideology, and became nicer. Eventually he became the Fifth Kazekage after being inspired by Naruto's dream of becoming Hokage.
In Part II of the series, three years after the failed attempt to retrieve Sasuke, Deidara, a member of the criminal organization Akatsuki, is sent to Sunagakure to capture Gaara. Deidara manages to capture Gaara by threatening Sunagakure, and the members of the Akatsuki extract Shukaku from his body.
