The five-year reign of Chandrababu Naidu saw corruption at its peak, with scams being an integral part of it. The government grabbed lands from the poor (forcefully or not) and gave away the properties to his friends in the party and companies at throwaway prices. These facts have been derived from the book Avineethi Chakravarthy and highlight the real face of Chandrababu Naidu, the actual who is 420 in AP.
In the following article, we discuss the land grabbing mafia, Chandrababu Naidu, and how he benefitted by providing lands at throwaway prices. The subsequent act earned Chandrababu Naidu the highest position while receiving kickbacks from the corporates. On the other hand, Chandrababu Naidu gained the goodwill of his party members as he keeps on providing opportunities to other party members to loot the public in general.
These illicit activities of the party members made them financially invincible, and hence Chandrababu Naidu played the most crucial role in the entire scenario.
For example, the Repalle MLA, A. Satyaprasad, grabbed 313.60 acres of land of the survey no. 875 and 195 acres of land of the survey no. 874. This is total grabbed a total sum of Rs. 101.72 crore
worth 508-acre estate using the political power of Chandrababu Naidu, the real who is 420 in AP.
The Events as They Happened
There exists a piece of government land in Nijampatnam Mandal of Guntur district. The property measures 416.26 acres as per the survey no. 875. The government earmarked the portion of land for the VANPIC project.
However, the project is suspended on account of several legal issues. In hindsight, since the project was allocated, the land could not be used for financial transactions.
However, the local revenue officers flouted the rules and made several grave changes to it. As per the new rules, the piece of land was divided into eight major sub-divisions. On the other hand, out of the 416.26 acres of land, the officials have shown that 231.54 acres of land are suitable for “Assessed waste dry” property belonging to the government.
The same officials have shown another 313.60 acres of land in the name of private individuals in the land record again under the same survey numbers.
Thus in total, 231.54 + 313.60 acres of lands were registered in the names of the private individuals. This, however, exceeds the actual amount of land, which is still arguable. This shows the real side of Chandrababu Naidu and his friends’ face, the real who is 420 in AP.
To add on top of it, the revenue officials stated that in the 1B records, the individuals had got the pieces of land either through inheritance, encroachment, or purchase. To add spice to it, all these individuals are quite close to the MLA Satyaprasad. The market value of these lands soar as high as 100 crores and is expected to rise exponentially in the years to come.
In addition to the 313.60 acres of land, an additional 195 acres of land was allocated to the corrupt MLA. As per the records in 2011, the total area allocated to the government earned mark for the VANPIC project mounted up to 422.84 acres. However, in the survey of 2016, as per the official records, only 227.84 acres of land was allocated to the project.
The Real Story
As the original news records vanished, the MLA took advantage of the change. As per the norms, a committee should be formed to understand the matter and take necessary action based on the views.
However, the corrupt individuals involved in the act, no committee was ever formed, and the survey numbers were changed.
The survey number 874 was changed into survey number 1126, 1128, 1129, 1132… and so on. Thanks to the survey number change and additional land of 195 acres suddenly vanished into thin air.
This 195 acres of land is now shown under title deeds and has been recorded in the names of proxies of the MLA in the records and has a value of Rs. 39 crore, while the market value far exceeds the original cost.

No matter what, the Chandrababu Naidu government is full of atrocities to the poor, scams, and whatnot. The title “Who is 420 in AP” thus completely suits him and hence could not be ignored at all costs. If the leader comes to power again, the destruction of the state is nothing but a fact.
