Rakesh Chaturvedi, Bhopal. Preparation for Mission 2023 has started in Madhya Pradesh. In the election year, like other demands, the demand for creating a district is also being raised. This demand has started arising after the announcement made by the government to create two new districts in the state. The demand for creation of new districts is gaining momentum from half a dozen areas of the state. At the same time, the echo of the announcement made earlier is also being heard. In this episode, the announcement of many districts is still in the queue.
Let us inform that on March 4, CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan has announced to separate Mauganj from Rewa and make it a district.

The previous Congress government of Kamal Nath had also announced to make Maihar and Chachoda districts, which has not been implemented. His government left before it could be implemented, so the matter is hanging in the balance.
