Apparently taking potshots at the previous BJP government, Patel said, "My government does not believe in making announcements, but less propaganda and more work (meri sarkar ghoshnaon me nahi, prachar kam kaam jyada me vishwas karti hai)."

During the election campaign, the had dubbed the then BJP as a "ghoshnaveer" (a man of announcements).

She said after installation of the new government, is at a cusp of change.

"The government thinks it is important to work more than talking about it (kahne se jyada jaroori kaam karna hai).

"Its time for change (waqt hai badlav ka) and this new culture will be reflected in the state's functioning and its progress," Patel stated.

"Waqt hai badlav ka" was the tagline of the campaign during the assembly polls which saw the end of the 15-year-old BJP rule.

BJP legislators were not present in the House during the governors address.

They staged a walkout after Deepak Saxena did not allow the BJP to move its proposal to field its MLA for and announced that candidate N P Prajapati has been elected to the constitutional office.

In protest, the BJP boycotted the governors address.

"The roadmap and blueprint of my government is its 'Vachan Patra' (manifesto) and it is determined to implement it earnestly in the next five years," she added.
