Moradabad: While the decision of Uttar Pradesh government to make new Bhimnagar district by joining Sambhal, Chandausi and Gunaur tehsils has brought cheers to the people of concerned regions, locals of Sambhal Tehsil protested the decision of making commissionary office of the new district at Chandausi.

The locals have launched protest and laid siege to the Moradabad Commissionary. However, the work to find land, buildings for the commissionary office in Chandausi and Bahjoi has been expedited as per the directions of administration.

Meanwhile leaders and representatives of some organizations met Commissioner SK Verma to register their protest for not making Sambhal Tehsil as new Bhimnagar district headquarter.

The protesters firmly said that they will put an end to the stir only after the UP government rolls backs its decision on making commissionary office of Bhimnagar district at Chandausi.
