After surviving a tragic accident and being saved by a passerby, he resolved to dedicate his life to public service. He was first elected as a municipal corporator, and then, in 1995, as a Member of Legislative Assembly for five consecutive terms. He also served the state as vice president of the party, which speaks immensely to his fine leadership qualities.
His skill in reciting poetry and knowledge of languages including Marathi, Hindi, Rajasthani, Tamil and English, were have been put to good use during his travels throughout the country as a star campaigner for the Bhartiya Janata Party.
Today, he actively serves the people and works for the cause and vision of his party. He is a beloved public figure due to his personal connection with the people, his care for their griefs and pains, his participation in cultural events and relentless efforts towards development.
Shri. Chainsukh Madanlal Sancheti was born to Shri. Madanlal Sancheti and Smt. Madanbai Sancheti on 16th December 1953. He is fondly known as “Chainubhau” amongst the masses and is also termed as ‘The People’s Man’. His father and his uncle were devoted members of the Jan Sangh, ‘Swayamsevaks’ of the RSS, and amongst the founding members of the Bhartiya Janata Party. His uncle, Shri. Kisanlal Sancheti, was also a Member of Legislative Assembly from Malkapur. Shri. Chainsukh Sancheti is happily married to Smt. Ujwala Sancheti.

During this time, he frequently came into the presence of Hon. Shri. Pandit Dendayal Upadhya and was deeply moved. He was actively engaged with the ABVP, participating and leading several protests, morchas, and agitations.
The friendships that sprouted during this period continue even today. During elections at Nagpur University, Chainubhau, along with Hon. Shri. Nitin Gadkari, led severals sabhas to campaign for the ABVP across the entire Vidharbha region. These two friends and their individual journeys are still connected, and their special bond of friendship has surpassed several milestones in their lives.
Shri. Sancheti was a fine wrestler and has participated and secured several titles in the sport in district and state competitions. He secured Nagpur University’s “Mr. University” title back then. His fitness helped him survive and recover from the aforementioned life-changing near-fatal accident. As an athlete, he understands the needs of a sportsperson and the importance of physical fitness.
This is why he always motivates people to religiously follow and believe in preventive healthcare. He envisioned and successfully ran missions like “Gav Tithe Vyayam Shala” & “Taluka tithe Krida Sankul”. That means that every village should be equipped with a gymnasium and every Taluka equipped with a sports complex. There are several sports, yoga, health checkup events conducted in his constituency throughout the year.
Party leadership and senior members have always played father-figure roles in Shri. Sancheti’s life. The incidents below are but a few of the memorable moments with the leadership that moved him from within.
Hon. Shri. Atal Bihari Vajpayee was a chief guest at a public meeting in 1983 of which Shri. Sancheti was the convener. Just before his speech, Shri. Vajpayee asked the young convenor, “How much time have I been allotted?” To that, Shri. Sancheti
replied: “This is your meeting (Sabha), all the time is yours.” Then Shri. Atalji imparted a great teaching that Shri. Sancheti has never forgotten. He said: “As per the rules, the meeting convenor is in charge and is responsible for the allotment of time for such meetings, so kindly let me know how much time I have to conclude my speech.” Laughter broke out onstage, and people were wonderstruck by the humility of a leader of this stature. Shri. Sancheti remembers this episode well, and it has kept him humble and grounded.
Another such incident that speaks of his service to his party and its leadership: at Ayodhya in 1992, the police were ordered to charge at public protest and control the mob. In a photograph, Shri Sancheti is seen protecting Hon. Shri. Lalkrishna Advani, ignoring the injuries he sustained during this struggle.
After the devastating earthquakes that struck Gujarat in 2001, Shri.Sancheti re-constructed several schools in the district of Bhuj, Gujrat, He was honoured and applauded by then Prime Minister Hon.Shri. Atal Bihari Vajpayee.This again shed light on his nature of being first responder for the people in distress, such incidence of his care for patients can be seen by thousands in his constituency.
Many such events and incidents have hounded his skills and trained him to be a better servant of the people. His cultural, religious, constitutional contribution to the society is vast as a human being and as a Member of Legislative Assembly for Malkapur for consecutive 25 Years.
