Taking to Twitter Jai Ram said, “We served the public for five years without any discrimination, never did any work in the state with a sense of revenge. We did not overturn any decision of the Congress government, did not stop any development work, but regret that Congress, continuing its custom, started the work of stopping and overturning the decisions of our government, while the cabinet has not even been formed yet, but has started working with a sense of revenge.”
हमने पाँच साल बिना किसी भेदभाव के जनता की सेवा की,कभी बदले की भावना से प्रदेश में कोई काम नहीं किया।
हमने कांग्रेस सरकार के किसी फैसले को नहीं पलटा,कोई विकास कार्य नहीं रोका,मगर अफसोस कि कांग्रेस सरकार ने बदले की भावना के साथ काम करना शुरू कर दिया है।#जनता_विरोधी_कांग्रेससरकार pic.twitter.com/KSxZ6jrPOy
