Early and personal life
Galla Jayadev was born in Diguvamagham, Andhra Pradesh to Ramachandra Naidu and Aruna Kumari. His father is an industrialist who founded the Amara Raja Group. His mother Aruna Kumari is a former MLA from Chandragiri constituency and was a minister in the Andhra Pradesh state government for several years. His grandfather Paturi Rajagopala Naidu was a freedom fighter, close associate of Acharya N G Ranga and a former Indian parliamentarian.
Along with his parents, Jayadev moved to US, where he lived for around 22 years. He studied politics and economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, where he joined Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.
Jay married Padmavathi Ghattamaneni, daughter of prominent Indian actor Krishna Ghattamaneni on 26 June 1991. They have two children – Siddharth Galla, a politician and Ashok Galla, an actor. He is known to be very close to his brother-in-law, actor Mahesh Babu.
One of the wealthiest politicians in India, Galla declared assets of ₹683 crore (US$90 million) in the 2014 general elections.
After his graduation, Jay worked as an international sales executive at GNB Battery Technologies in USA. On his return from the United States in 1992, he took up the task of setting up the sales and service network for the industrial battery division of Amara Raja. He contested 16th Lok Sabha election from the Guntur Constituency in Andhra Pradesh and won with a big margin.
Jayadev spoke on a number of different issues of public interest in the Parliament of India. His description and analysis on the subject of tolerance in India was appreciated by general public.
He spoke in Loksabha on 7 February 2018, regarding the Budget allocations to Andhra Pradesh in Union Budget 2018. Also he made comment that Bahubali Movie collections are more than the funds allocated to Andhra Pradesh. Accusing the NDA government of not doing anything to fulfill the promises made at the time of bifurcation of the state, Mr Galla wanted to know what the government did in the last four years.
Jayadev displayed the much needed political aggression in his 16-minute speech in Lok Sabha on the raw deal meted out to Andhra Pradesh in the Union Budget. Pointing out the enormous delay and apathy displayed by the Centre in fulfilling its obligations under AP Bifurcation Act, Jayadev demanded of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Prime Minister Narendra Modi an explanation to the people of AP. Galla powerfully articulated the deep sense of betrayal felt by the people of the state at the inexplicable cold attitude of the Centre. He cautioned the Centre against the prolonged neglect of the State and its requirements at its own peril. Excerpts from his emotional speech that won great appreciation for him from all the quarters: Sir, I do understand about trust an essential requirement for any partnership to continue. I also think that I can safely say that India has not seen her last days of coalition governments. What message do you want to send to your allies and potential allies mr. Prime Minister. Your allies are feeling neglected, betrayed and humiliated as are the five core people of Andhra Pradesh. We demand an explanation. In the budget there’s no mention of Amaravati, Polavaram, Railway zone, deficit budget, special package, not to mention the other commitments made in the AP Reorganization Act and the assurances made on the floor of the Raja Sabha by then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh ji, without which this bill would not have been passed and therefore should be considered sacrosanct.
Jayadev Galla donated 2 cr to Guntur Genereal Hospital - his own money and another 2 crs from MPLAD funds.
