TIRUPATI: Jana Sena Party (JSP) MLA Rapaka Vara Prasad Rao extended support to Andhra Pradesh government's decision over making Visakhapatnam as executive capital of the state. Rapaka, who was on a visit to Tirumala on Thursday, spoke to the media after having darshan. He said that decentralisation of development will be beneficial to all the people of the state.
