Condoling the death, Andhra BJP president Somu Veerraju recalled his services to the state. “He joined the party in 1989 and climbed up the ranks. He earned the plaudits from all sections as legislator, minister and party member,” Veerraju told IANS.

Rao was elected from the Tadepalligudem seat in the 2014, when the BJP contested the Assembly polls in alliance with the Telugu Desam Party and the Jana Sena Party.
