In the past, Rajbhar attacked his own government on various issues. Earlier, the UP Minister had given a 100-day ultimatum to the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) to implement 27% reservation, failing which he threatened to break all the ties with the ruling government.

In December last year, Rajbhar slammed the Yogi government. He accused Rashtriya Swanyamsewak Sangh (RSS), Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) for inciting violence in Bulandshehr and pointed fingers at the BJP in connection with the case, in which the mob killed police inspector Subodh Kumar Singh. He had also attacked the UP chief minister for calling ‘Lord Hanuman a Dalit.
