HYDERABAD:  The AP Government has more or less decided to make Vijayawada the temporary state capital, given its central location and easy access for people from other parts of the state. The nine-member advisory panel on the capital city, headed by Urban Development Minister P Narayana, met Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu here on Tuesday. It is learnt that officials were asked to shift the headquarters of various departments to the ad-hoc capital in a phased manner.
