When prime minister Narendra Modi visited hyderabad in May to participate in the opening ceremony of ISB's two-decade celebrations, Naidu felt unhappy that the administration had neglected to mention even his name when reminiscing about the history of the institution. The tdp leader issued an open statement in which he expressed his extreme hurt at the ISB officials for failing to recognise his participation during the festivities, despite the fact that they were aware of his tireless efforts' commitment to the establishment of the esteemed institution.
"On the 20th anniversary of ISB's annual day, the prime minister spoke. He did not, however, mention my name. It is irrelevant. That's what I done for my telugu people, and that makes me happy "Naidu said, adding that his primary goal is the growth of the state, and he has never strived to acquire celebrity or notoriety. The ISB administration saw Naidu's remarks favourably and eventually invited him to the valedictory ceremony, where he spoke with Dr. Pramanth raj Sinha, the founding dean of the ISB. Attending the conference were members of the ISB's first graduating class, some of whom have gone on to create successful businesses or are currently employed in india or abroad.
