"N"[edit]

So "N" is the first of his two given names, and not an abbreviation of a title or anything? --Menchi 05:25, Aug 1, 2003 (UTC)

Anon 217 just answered. It's "Nara". --Menchi 05:42, Aug 1, 2003 (UTC)

Indian names are usually long with the father's name or native place's name being the surname and the caste being the last name. So in his case, Nara is derived from his village naravaripally, which literally means "Village of Nara" in telugu, and his last name is Naidu, which is the name of his caste in hindu religion. His give name is chandra babu.--Sandeep346 (talk) 16:39, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Your wrong there. Father name becoming the last name is only done in Tamil Nadu as far as I know. In Andhra Pradesh it is the same as everywhere else. Nara is his surname and Naidu is suffix/middle name. Naidu in this case is not suffix which tells his caste as he is not a Naidu so in otherwords thats his middle name. Naravaripalle (translation above is wrong correct translation is "Nara's Village" Naravari translates to Nara's) name it self is telling village was named after his family being a dominant family at a certain time which is how most villages and towns are named in India. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.195.214.52 (talk) 19:31, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

POV[edit]

I am added the reference required for this article, if u need are any clarification regarding this i can help you guys.


—Preceding unsigned comment added by Bnareshbabu (talkcontribs) 21:29, 15 August 2009 (UTC) 

Looks like this page too a big step backwards on the latest POV edits. Not a single line has references. Also, looks like most of the editing was done by one fan. We need to revert it back to the last Gprince edit. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.73.148.245 (talk) 19:25, 13 August 2009 (UTC)


The current article has POV.Either the author forgot to update the article with recent events or its a case of POV.A lot of things has happened ever since he has been ousted from chief-ministership.Also no talks of farmer deaths,rise of priced in basic amenities etc etc.--Sahodaran 15:27, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

The above causes for a POV doesnt seem rational. May be the article is POV. From the above comments It looks like it needs updating and expansion --Vyzasatya 03:08, 24 October 2005 (UTC)
Ok.I was trying to imply that first and foremost;A LOT HAS HAPPENED WHICH HAS BEEN LEFT UNMENTIONED.Most of these "left unmentioned" things are embarrassing to Mr.Naidu,so it is certainly not a matter of coincidence.It certainly needs updating and expansion but it must also allow for some kind of criticisms.Naidu,afterall is not someone who is free from criticism.From the present article,one will feel that he is one.(free from criticisms!).It rather seems like an ad for Mr.Naidu.I am all for POV tag here--Sahodaran 03:44, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

This is an article about an eminent personality and should be treated with respect. His party has been ousted from power which is mentioned in the article. It is due to the collective loss of the political party and not the responsibility of naidu. It should be pointed out that he WON the elections in his constituency with RECORD MAJORITY WITHOUT CAMPAIGNING at all. So we better not debate about the neutrality of the article. It surely doesnt look like a fan site for naidu because it mentions his losing his chief minsitership as well. But I do agree that the article needs to be updated with the events that happened after 2006.--Sandeep346 (talk) 16:44, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

changes[edit]

added 3 sections - Tenure as CM, defeat in 2004 and his legacy. --Hydman 10:15, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Chandra Babu Naidu is one of the living legend and a person of great foresight. Due to his futuristic vision Andhra Pradesh has become a hub for IT. Under his able leadership AP has made great progress but unfortunately the climatic conditions were not good during some of the years while he was in power. Congress came into power due to this natural calamities otherwise there was no chance for them.

Reference[edit]

I am pretty surprised that this aritlces neutrality is being disputed. Pretty much all the quotes, and rather ambitious claims have been cited.

Every quote now has a reference cited from the internet.And I am pleasantly surprised all the quotes were found on the net. I am sure now we can stop the debate about the accuracy of the article--Sandeep346 (talk) 16:47, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

NPOV[edit]

the following statement in early life and political career, "This won him wide appreciation from both his party cadre and the public" seems to glorify him a lot.....even statements like ,"During this tenure Naidu systematically introduced transparency in Government, breaking the tradition of inordinate secrecy in the Finance department." seem like glorification campaign...although he is a able and efficient administrator ,the above statements dont seem to reflect wiki's NPOV.....Gprince007 11:38, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Those sentences have been edited and a section about his loss of ministership is also added. So I guess now the debate about NPOV could stop?--Sandeep346 (talk) 06:03, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Copyedit[edit]

There are a number of issues to be addressed in the text, please refer to hidden comments marked "Copyeditor's note". Also, this article has hardly any references, and badly needs more (citeable) criticism of Naidu to balance the POV. Cricketgirl 20:40, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

I have added a few references that found for some of the quotes and facts. I am sure some one would do the criticism part :) --Sandeep346 (talk) 16:49, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

afro asian games[edit]

POV 2009[edit]

Okay. So, there have been excessive edits adding in poorly written and poorly thought out cruft. Examples of problems are lines like:

"Janmabhoomi is a people centered development process launched in January 1997. This process has evolved out of the experience gained through the implementation of Prajala Vaddaku Paalana (taking administration to the door steps of people) launched in November 1995 and Sramadanam (contribution of labour) launched in January 1996. It aims at establishing and ideal society, which embodies and cherishes the principles of people’s participation, equality, transparency and accountability leading to sustained economic development and excellence in all walks of life. The goal is an enhanced quality of life for every man, woman and child in the state. Fourteen Rounds of Janmabhoomi have been held so far in the State"

The reference for the above quote was set as http://www.aponline.gov.in/quick%20links/economic%20survey/janambhoomi.pdf - and that whole paragraph was taken from that PDF - word for word. Which is a problem in itself. The other issue is that this is simply propaganda from the organisation responsible for the program. It's hardly something that should be referenced. That would be like referencing a North Korean website extolling the virtures of that country. There needs to be reliable THIRD party references.

The paragraph:

"Mr. Naidu has been evincing a keen interest in rural development activities in general and, the upliftment of the poor and downtrodden sections of society in particular.While pursuing his post graduation, he worked out to lay a road from Rangampet village to Naravaripalli with the support of the people in his village, adjacent villagers and his friends. This was a real example for his leadership qualities."

and the line:

"Mr. Naidu became a MLA (of Chandragiri constituency in 1978) at a very young age through sheer hard work. "

are simply political promotional material. This is NOT what an encyclopedia should contain. Not at all. There are more examples of this. The references notwithstanding, this should NOT be put back in without some reputable and verifiable 3rd party references. Ccrashh (talk) 12:35, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Well i am busy in real life and didnt want to explain each and everything to an anon editor but User:Ccrashh has just voiced my concerns in the above post. I would request this anonymous editor to refrain from adding any political propaganda on this page...! Gprince007 (talk) 15:14, 25 August 2009 (UTC)


Mr. Naidu has been evincing a keen interest in rural development activities in general and, the upliftment of the poor and downtrodden sections of society in particular./ Rhis may Be agnist POV//

While pursuing his post graduation, he worked out to lay a road from Rangampet village to Naravaripalli with the support of the people in his village, adjacent villagers and his friends. // These sentence are true, we have telugu news paper cutings is it enough for this one//

This was a real example for his leadership qualities. // It May Be aganist POV//

I am asking you guys all the above stuf is agnist POV, are last sentecne is agnist POV. can you give the break up wich is agnist POV and wich NPOV. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.126.245.198 (talk) 12:40, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

First, there has to be a reliable online source or reference to the paper. Second, it shouldn't be an opinion piece that lauds this guy. Writing something like "Mr. Naidu has introduced programs that are designed to improve the lives of the poor" along with a verifiable reference to these programs and their intent, then that is okay. Stating that "Mr. Naidu has shown interest in rural development activities" without a reference, and without context, is not acceptable. Even the phrase "..has been evincing a keen interest in..." is not even notable - just because he has an "interest" in something doesn't mean he actually is doing anything about it. As for the paragraph "While pursuring his post graduation...", if there is an historical reference that can be linked, then it would be fine. Simply stating it is not acceptable.

Edit request on 31 March 2012[edit]

There seems to some biased posts and falsehoods being propagated by vested interests to defame Chandrababu Naidu. This is a ripe case where people with malicious intent gained access to the page and preventing editing out of falsehoods. I dare you to open the page.

Ghan0011 (talk) 04:55, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Not done: please be more specific about what needs to be changed. Also see WP:NOTFORUM. Thanks.   — Jess· Δ 05:46, 31 March 2012 (UTC)


How about the following line. "Naidu fought tooth and nail to halt the investigation". The line seems to be suggesting that Naidu was trying hard with some sort of fear to stop the investigation, this sort of writing cannot come from an unbiased mind and is against Wikipedia policies, neither is this substantiated by any unbiased publication.

Also, about the reasons for the debacle. The literacy rate cause, real employee wages cause are unsubtantiated as they came from a biased pro-communist author, Palagummi Sainath. What we need here is a link to the project report from a government agency in India to be unbiased here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ghan0011 (talkcontribs) 06:46, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

@ Ghan CBI case may be biased but look at http://www.eaber.org/node/22385, you will see that GDP growth rate average 5.8% during Naidu rule (1996-2004) lower than national average, http://www.cato.org/economic-freedom-india/Chapter3.pdf this report further shows GDP growth rate averaged 9.06% in 2004-2009 and how AP achieved higher growth rate later.

please read this report http://www.nfhsindia.org/NFHS-3%20Data/ap_state_report_printed_version_for_website.pdf , you will find that what is written in wikipedia is factually correct. Wikipedia should not delete the facts just because they are against him
