- Munawwar Rana says his statements were misinterpreted in the media
- It is possible that Yogi may come again or Owaisi may rule from 100 seats: Rana
- Attacking Owaisi, Rana said that people like him have no work in UP
Renowned Urdu poet Munawwar Rana says that his statements were misinterpreted in the media. On the other hand, in response to the question of whose government will be formed in the UP elections in 2022, Munawwar Rana said that it is possible that Yogi may come again or Asaduddin Owaisi may form the government from 100 seats. Munawwar Rana, who joined BJP MP Manoj Tiwari in the forum of Times Now Navbharat, targeted Owaisi and said that people like him have no work in UP.
On the question of displeasure with Yogi Adityanath during the program, Munawwar Rana said, ‘I had said that if Yogi ji becomes CM again due to Owaisi’s grace, I will leave Uttar Pradesh. My displeasure was not with Yogi, but with Owaisi. Because people like Owaisi have no work here. The word Ganga-Jamuna Tehzeeb which is spoken all over the world has been given by this UP. No Owaisi is needed here who does one sided or Muslim politics.
What did Munawwar Rana say on the Abbajan controversy
On the Abbajan controversy, Munawwar Rana said, ‘Abba Jaan is everyone’s father. In our Hindustani sanskar, a mother holds the status of everyone’s mother, in the same way a father holds the status of everyone’s father. Regarding all the FIRs against him, Munawwar Rana said, ‘A poet is not just a poet, thousands of stories, stories and dates are buried inside him. The poet does not want to speak because when he speaks he becomes Munawwar Rana, cases are filed against him in Hazratganj and protests take place. My bad luck is that I am a poet and I know how to speak so much that this mindless society has taken different meanings from it.’
‘Power flows through the drain of my city’
From the stage of the program held in Lucknow, Munawwar Rana said, ‘Congratulations for the 2022 elections. Election is a game and a spectacle, sometimes some party wins sometime some other. It is possible that Yogi ji may come again and it is possible that Owaisi may form the government with 100 seats. The Urdu poet further said, ‘I am a resident of Rae Bareli, power flows through the drains of my city and reaches Delhi. If I had reached near the drain even with a begging bowl, I would have become a minister.
‘Yogi will come again and Munavvar Rana will remain the same’
BJP MP Manoj Tiwari, who was present in the program, said, “Yogi will come again in UP and Munavwar Rana will remain the same.” On the other hand, Manoj Tiwari retorted on the comment of power flowing in the drains and said, ‘When someone says that power used to flow through the drains of our Rae Bareli, I used to feel pain. Those who think that power went through the drains, today the country has put them on the sidelines and continues to do so. Those who say that for them people like Narendra Modi have to come again and sanctify it by bowing their heads in Parliament.
Munawwar Rana on Taliban statement
On the statement supporting the Taliban, Munawwar Rana said, ‘The media is a scissor. In our community, in our language, the scavenger is called Begum, the scavenger is called Halalkhor. Can we insult Valmiki, the community whose tongue has taught so much tehzeeb? I meant to say that just as God got Maharishi Valmiki to write Ramayana, in the same way Allah Mian should also take the work of humanity from these Talibanis.
