N Chandrababu Naidu is an Indian political figure. His birthday is on April 20, 1951. He was born in Naravari Palle, Chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh, son of Amanamma and N. Kharjura Naidu. At the time of his birth, agriculture was the source of income of his family.
His father would do farming while his mother was a housewife. Since there was no educational facility in his village, he completed his primary and secondary education from Seshapuram and Chandragiri Government High School respectively. He did his masters in economics from S. V. College of Arts.
During his student life, he also joined Youth Congress. Though he had always been interested in politics, it was when he was doing his Ph.D. in economics under the guidance of D. L. Narayana, Andhra Pradesh's Finance Commission Chairman, did he become passionate about politics and decided to join it.
In 1978, he became a Congress member, and by the age of twenty-eight, he held the position of Technical Education and Cinematography Minister. While serving for the post he became friendly with N. T. Rama Rao, a renowned movie star, and also became a part of his family by marrying his daughter, Nara Bhuvaneshwari.
They both have a son named Nara Lokesh who is married to Nandamuri Balakrishna's daughter. 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. Rajasekhara Reddy, a Congress Minister, had accused him of being corrupt who was involved in various scams. But the High Court declared all the allegations against him as baseless.
He has won several awards like India Today's IT Indian of the Millennium, The Economic Times's Business Person of the Year and Time Asia's South Asian of the Year. He is also a member of the Dream Cabinet of the World Economic Forum. Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad, which had joined hands with MIT School of Governance, honored him with the Aadarsh Mukhyamantri Puraskar, which means Model CM Award in English.
