Malda, Jan. 13 :    Malda, Jan. 13:  Putting an end to the 25-year-old controversy, chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today announced the setting up of the district's first sub-division at Chanchal and not at Shamsi. "We (the government) will start setting up various offices for the purpose from April 1 ," he said. The chief minister came here today to attend a party meeting. Addressing a huge gathering at the Math Bhat ground Bhattacharjee said that the government had taken the decision for setting up the sub-division way back in 1986, but regretted the delay. The implementation of the decision had to be postponed after some residents of Shamsi moved court demanding the sub-division to be set up at Shamsi and not at Chanchol.
