Nara Chandrababu Naidu (born 20 April 1950) is an Indian politician and the President of Telugu Desam Party in Andhra Pradesh. He is the currently serving his second non-consecutive term as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.
The 2004 election defeat for Naidu was primarily attributed to not enough focus on agriculture by his administration. The severe drought and increasing debt had driven hundreds of farmers in the state to commit suicide. Naidu was perceived to ignore the large rural population with his policies, which created a negative image for him. He subsequently lost 2009 Assembly elections and became the longest serving Leader of opposition since 2004. Naidu has also been criticized for his frequent change of mind in regards to the support of the Andhra Pradesh Bifurcation. After the 2014 local assembly elections, Naidu was re-elected as Chief Minister.
