Life was paralysed in Sambhal today as locals observed a bandh to demand that the headquarters of the new district,which was created by the Mayawati government last year,be shifted to Sambhal tehsil from nearby Bahjoi.

Business establishments,schools and colleges were closed,roads were blocked. The protest was organised by Zila Sangarsh Samiti,which consists of representatives of various organisations in the town.

Sambhal district,which had population of around 22 lakh,was carved out of Moradabad district in September 2011. It consists of three tehsils — Sambhal and Chandausi,taken from Moradabad,and Gunnaur,taken from Badaun. Sambhal is Muslim dominated,while Chandausi and Gunnar are Yadav dominated. After the creation of the district,the previous government decided to locate its headquarters at Chandausi but it was changed after protests in Sambhal and Gunnaur and the headquarters was moved to Bahjoi,which is also in Chandausi tehsil.
