Chandrababu Naidu took oath as Andhra Pradesh's Chief Minister for the fourth time. Naidu became the state's chief minister in 1995, and during his tenure, he worked hard to establish Hyderabad as an IT hub.

An anecdote about his interaction with Bill Gates at the time is currently under debate. He has previously spoken about this.

In 1998, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu had to meet with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. After a lot of effort, he was granted a 10-minute meeting with Bill Gates. But Naidu once described how a 10-minute discussion went into more than half an hour.

Naidu is known for playing an important role in developing Hyderabad as an IT hub. This also includes setting up Microsoft's office in the city in 1998. Chandrababu Naidu recalled how he had got 10 to meet the co-founder of Microsoft.

But, this meeting turned into more than half an hour. At that time, he gave a presentation to Bit Gates on a laptop. Bill Gates was very impressed by this.

Naidu said that Gates was in New Delhi for some work. I contacted the United States officials to meet him. They told me that he was very busy. If you want to meet, you will have to attend a cocktail party in the evening.

At that time, he had given 10 for the meeting. But, this conversation lasted for 40 minutes. During this time I asked him for Hyderabad Microsoft Office.
