Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was also handed over the letter on his arrival to Dhar. The demand to separate Kukshi tehsil and make it into a district was being raised for long.
"I will remain on Maun Upwas till Republic Day (112 days) in Maa Gayatri Mandir Kukshi from 9 am on October 7, (first day of Shardiya Navratri) for making Kukshi a district," Patidar said.
Patidar said that Kukshi was a big commercial centre in Indore division. It was also a major centre for agricultural produce market and industry. A civil hospital, government and private schools and colleges were also present there. Tribal and backward people would get more benefits from the district hospital, he added. Jail building had also been proposed, he further added.
Patidar requested residents, social and political organisations to support the movement for development of the region, leaving aside political gains and losses.
