ControversiesMantralaya protest case
In September 2021, a case was registered against Chitra by Marine Drive police for protesting outside Mantralaya, the state secretariat, demanding a special Assembly session to discuss incidents against women's safety. According to the police, section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) was violated by Chitra and other protesters. In November 2022, she was given a clean chit by a Mumbai court. [2]Mid-Day

False allegations on BJP leader
In February 2022, a 23-year-old girl accused the deputy leader of Shiv Sena, Raghunath Kuchik of raping her on multiple occasions. She further stated that he promised her marriage, and she was also tortured, threatened and forced to undergo an abortion. After the FIR was filed against Kuchik, he totally denied the allegations and said,
The case has been registered out of a political conspiracy to defame me and my family. It is also a form of blackmailing and an attempt to tarnish my work in the labour sector and my many years of social and political image."
Later, he was also granted anticipatory bail by the Pune court, but Chitra brought the case to the limelight and demanded strict action against Kuchik. In April 2022, the incident took a different turn when the victim accused Chitra of forcing her to file a case against the Shiv Sena leader. She further claimed that Chitra asked her to write a suicide note and present it to the media. Chitra denied the allegations and said,
Raghunath Kuchik case victim heard the accusations against me now….actually felt bad but never mind. Standed with the victim who was fighting alone since Feb when no one helped her but today I am happy that everyone is united against me..I am ready for all inquiries."
Later, Kuchik's daughter filed an FIR against Chitra for defaming her father and their family. [3]Pune Mirror

Questioning BJP leader Nana Patole's public behaviour
In July 2022, Chitra shared a video of a member of the legislative assembly of Maharashtra, Nana Patole where he was seen in a hotel with his arm around a woman's neck. The video went viral on social media. Chitra held a press conference to talk about him and said,
The video that came out of Nana Patole is shocking. Be it Solapur, Raigad, Nana Patole or any party, when you are a representative of the people, your responsibility is increased several times. Everyone should act responsibly. What lessons have people learned from this? It is wrong to pry into someone's private life. But when that thing becomes public, it does not stay private. Today, after the video went viral, it came to me. So I asked Nana, are you also Nana?" [4]News 18 Lokmat

Chitra against Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Rathod
In August 2022, Chitra demanded the resignation of Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Rathod because he was accused of the death of a 23-year-old girl Pooja Chavan in 2021. Chavan died after jumping from her apartment's balcony after which alleged audio clips of a conversation between Chavan and Rathod came forward. On 14 February 2021, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray ordered an investigation into the matter after which Rathod resigned from the position. In 2022, he was again given a chance to become the cabinet minister. After his appointment, Chitra said that she would not stop fighting against him and said,
It is very unfortunate that former minister Sanjay Rathore, who caused the death of Pooja Chavan, has been given the post of minister again. Even though Sanjay Rathore has become a minister again, I have continued my fight against him." [5]Maharashtra Times

Case against Urfi Javed
On 1 January 2023, Chitra filed a complaint against social media personality Urfi Javed for wearing a revealing outfit. She took to Twitter and wrote,
Today I met the commissioner of Mumbai police and the joint commissioner of police (law and order) and requested them to take immediate legal action against Uorfi Javed for indulging in nudity publicly on the streets of Mumbai."
Urfi was called to the police station where she said that it was her constitutional right to dress up the way she wants. She also filed a countercase against Chitra for threatening her. Replying to Chitra, Urfi took to Twitter and wrote,
This is how ancient Hindu women used to dress. Hindus were liberal, educated, women were allowed to choose their clothes, actively participated in sports, politics. They were sex and females body positive people. Go learn about Bhartiya Sanskriti first." [6]DNA

Some Lesser Known Facts About Chitra Wagh

  • Chitra Wagh is an Indian politician who is known for being appointed as the president of BJP’s women’s wing ‘Maharashtra Pradesh Mahila Morcha’ on 3 November 2022.
  • In 2015, when she was part of the Nationalist Congress Party, she stated that the women in rural areas were unsafe and were not treated properly in the police stations under the BJP-Shiv Sena regime.
  • In October 2020, Chitra came forward in support of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi who went to UP to meet the family of the girl who was raped in Hathras. While she was going, Priyanka was held by her Kutra by a police officer who tried to stop her from meeting the victim’s family. In a tweet, Chitra asked the UP government to take strict action against the police officer and wrote,

    How dare the male police put their hands on the clothes of a female leader. If women are coming forward in support, then wherever the police may be, they must take care of their dignity. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who believes in Indian culture, should take strict action against such policemen.”

  • In February 2021, a case under sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act was registered against Chitra’s husband, Kishor. In the investigation, it was found that 90.24 per cent of Jagannath’s assets were disproportionate to his income. In 2016, a bribery case was registered against Kishor who worked as a librarian at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital. In February 2017, an open investigation started against him and his house was raided. After the FIR, BJP leader Praveen Darekar alleged that the Maha Vikas Aghadi government was accusing Kishor because his wife Chitra was raising her voice against the state Forest Minister and Shiv Sena MLA Sanjay Rathod in the suicide case of Deepali Chavan.
