he/she has a tussle with BJP MP Mansukh Vasava from Bharuch parliamentary seat, recently MP Vasava openly challenged Chaitar Vasava for a debate on tribal development, then MLA Vasava agreed to come at the time and address given by the MP.
A debate was to be held between the BJP MP and the AAP MLA at Rajpipla’s Gandhi Maidan at 11 am on Saturday, but at the last moment the MP shied away from the debate on the pretext of being busy. On the other hand, MLA Vasava alleged that the contracts issued by the government for tribal schemes are taken by the people close to the MP and instead of development, they distribute the grants meant for tribal welfare.

Chaitra Vasava also claimed that he/she was ready to come to the debate with the document but police stopped him/her as soon as he/she left Dediapada, although many of his/her colleagues and party leaders were seen waiting for the BJP MP after reaching Gandhi Maidan.
