Chandrababu Naidu entered the political scene as a youth leader from Chandragiri and after that there was no looking back for him. During the Emergency, he was appointed as Pulicherla Youth Congress president. He became close to then prime minister Indira Gandhi's son Sanjay Gandhi.

Chandrababu Naidu got a Congress ticket in 1978 under the 20 per cent quota for youth from the Chandragiri Constituency. He was elected into the state assembly of Andhra Pradesh in 197s a member of the Congress Party, and he became the Minister of Technical Education and Cinematography in T Anjaiah's cabinet, making him the state's youngest assembly member and youngest minister at the age of 28.

Being the Minister of State for Cinematography, he came into contact with the then superstar and Matinee Idol of Telugu Cinema, late Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao (NTR). The Nadamuri family was impressed with Chandrababu Naidu, and they soon proposed that NTR's daughter Bhuvaneswari be married to him. The wedding was conducted on a grand scale in Madras.

In early 1982, there were rumours that NTR was planning to plunge into politics by floating a regional political party. Nine months before the scheduled general elections, NTR floated a regional party Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and was said to have invited Naidu to join the party, but Chandrababu Naidu stuck to the Congress party and contested again from Chandragiri constituency against a rival TDP candidate Venkatarama Naidu. The TDP swept the polls, and won by a huge majority. It was the first time Indian National Congress was defeated in the State after Independence.

Chandrababu Naidu joined the TDP after he was defeated in the elections, predicting he would have a better future in his father-in-law's party.
Rise in the party

Naidu soon became NTR's trusted lieutenant and right hand man. When Nadendla Bhaskara Rao staged the infamous coup against NTR in August 1984, it was Chandrababu Naidu who helped his father-in-law (NTR) regain power by rallying and parading all the MLA's before the President of India at Rashtrapati Bhavan.[12] NTR appointed Naidu as the General Secretary of the party. He began playing a crucial role in the TDP after Nadendla Bhaskara Rao's coup.

NTR opted for a mid-term poll after regaining the chief ministership, but Naidu did not contest the poll. The Nadendla factor gave NTR another landslide. Naidu slowly started to become a second power centre in the TDP and was believed to be building his own group in the party.
Legislative career 1989–1994

In the 1989 Assembly Elections, Chandrababu Naidu contested from his native constituency Kuppam and won with a slender majority of 5,000-odd votes. But as the Congress had regained power in the state elections, Chandrababu Naidu had to sit in the Opposition.

In 1994, the TDP regained power following an anti-Congress wave triggered by an anti-liquor agitation and a strong anti-incumbency factor. Chandrababu Naidu became the Finance and Revenue minister in NTR's cabinet.

On 23 August 1995 Chandrababu Naidu engineered an internal party coup against NTR. His main reason to takeover the party and government from NTR was that NTR's second wife Lakshmi Parvathi was mishandling the party internal affairs to be the successor to NTR in the party and that the party was in danger of disintegrating. He convinced the majority of the party about the dangers of Lakshmi Parvathi's damaging decisions keeping NTR in the dark. Naidu took over the post of Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh on 1 September 1995. He was also chosen as president of the Telugu Desam Party, sidelining NTR from TDP. NTR's sons, actors Nandamuri Harikrishna and Nandamuri Balakrishna and son-in-law Daggubati Venkateswara Rao played a crucial role in the coup.

As chief minister, Chandrababu Naidu, had called for short-term sacrifices to turn Andhra Pradesh into an Asian tiger over the next 20 years. Chandrababu Naidu soon slashed subsidies for – among other things – food, and he raised power tariffs.

Both CNN and Time gave widespread coverage to Chandrababu Naidu's way of functioning, CNN said, In just five years, he has turned an impoverished, rural backwater place into India's new information technology hub. Time magazine has awarded Chandrababu Naidu as South Asian of the Year.

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) led by Chandrababu Naidu won a majority in the state house winning 185/294 seats in the State Assembly and 29/42 in the Lok Sabha. Telugu Desam Party and its ally Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) together bagged 37/42 seats in the Lok Sabha segment. Making it the second-largest ally in the new BJP led coalition government.

The Telugu Desam Party led by Chandrababu Naidu failed to come into the power after two successive wins, winning as low as 47/294 constituencies in the state assembly and 5/42 in the Lok Sabha segment. While many of his ministers lost, Naidu himself won by a huge margin in Kuppam.
