In the speech which was later removed from his Facebook account, Rawat said the difference in the allocation of rations created “jalan (jealousy)”. “… Ki mujhe at 2 hain at 10 kilo mila, 20 wale ko quintal kyun mila?” Bhaiyya ismein dosh kiska? Usne 20 paida kiya, aapne 2 paida kiye, to usko ek quintal mil raha, ab ismein jalan kahe ka? Jab samay tha to aapne 2 hi paida kiye, 20 kyun nahi kiya (… that I have 2 family members, so I have 10 kg, those who have 20 units have a quintal. But whose fault is it ? The one who reproduced 20 got a quintal, you only reproduced two. Why jealously about that? When there was time, you only reproduced two, why not 20)?

His remark that people hadn’t eaten rice of such good quality is also derogatory. “
