  NARA CHANDRABABU NAIDU  


--------------- A Politician who means business
Chandrababu Naidu - The  CEO  of Andhra Pradesh

From The Business Person of the Year in 1998 to The IT Man of the Year in 1999 and from the IT Indian of the Millennium to The South Asian of the Year, Nara Chandrababu Naidu, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh representing 70 million people is undoubtedly the CEO of Andhra Pradesh.

Born to an agriculturist couple N K Naidu and Ammanamma, on April 20, 1950, in Naravaripalle of Chittoor district, Chandrababu Naidu finished his graduation and post-graduation in Economics from Sri Venkateshwara Arts College, Tirupati. Even when in college, he held various positions in the Students' Union and organised several social activities, including one for the victims of the 1977 cyclone.

While studying for his Ph.D in Economics, he took to politics and in 1978, got elected to the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly. From 1980-83, he held various portfolios in the Congress government. In 1985, he was chosen for the post of the Secretary of the Telugu Desam Party and got elected to the State Legislature in 1989 and 1994.

In 1995 there was an expansion in the party and Chandrababu was unanimously elected as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. He has continued for a second term from October 1999.

Adopting a modern outlook and a style of functioning akin to the Chief Executive Officer, using modern tools like IT and blueprinting dreams like Vision 2020, Chandrababu Naidu quickly set himself apart from the rest. The start he gave to develop information technology has created a niche for Hyderabad on the global map.

To involve people in implementing government policies, he has developed schemes like the Janma Bhoomi and Social Auditing and has created self-help groups like Watershed Development, the Village Health and the Village Education Committees. He has improved the government's functioning by adopting the twin-pronged approach of transforming and informing.

He has introduced a series of Dial your CM programmes where the citizens get an opportunity to address their grievances to none other than Naidu himself. He is also responsible for establishing a state-wide communication area network and teleconferencing. He monitors and ushers administrative reforms with the help of these modern technologies.

Following the national policy, he has boldly reformed various sectors, including power. The dynamism and the single-mindedness that he exhibits in these programmes is the reason for Andhra Pradesh being globally recognised as a model for bringing in reforms.

And, understandably, Nara Chandrababu Naidu is hailed the world over as a symbol of reforms. Indeed, here is a politician who means business!
