The tweet from Vij came just two days after he unfurled the national flag as a minister for the 69th Independence Day celebrations in Yamunanagar town. Vij is a senior minister in the first BJP government in Haryana.

He holds charge of the Health and Sports Departments. He is the most active of all Haryana Ministers and quite popular with his action-oriented style of functioning. The minister is well-known for his no-holds-barred comments on Twitter and otherwise.

In the last few months, ever since the BJP came to power in Haryana in October 2014, Vij has even left his own government and Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar embarrassed with his comments. Vij took the Twitter route last month to express his displeasure over the  Khattar government bypassing him and appointing actress Parineeti Chopra as  brand ambassador for a campaign.
