The BJP leader said that he is hopeful to win the upcoming assembly election from Manavadar seat of Junagadh.
"It's easier for me to win this time as I proved what power can do and how I can help people," said Chavda.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra has already covered parts of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Maharashtra and is in Madhya Pradesh.
Bharat Jodo Yatra, which began on September 7 from Kanyakumari, will end in Kashmir next year. It is the longest march on foot by any Indian politician in the history of India, claims Congress.
