‘Request you to rename Khan Market as Valmiki Market,’ Man writes to Rajnath Singh

Recently, in an interview, PM Modi had mentioned 'Khan Market gang', the elites in media circle who believe they have built Modi's image

A certain Deepak Tanwar, in a letter to Home Minister Rajnath Singh, has requested that the name of Khan Market be changed. The alternative he has proposed is Valmiki Market. Interestingly enough, Tanwar has no association with the market. He is neither a shop owner nor a resident in the area.

As per reports, Tanwar said that he got the idea to get Khan Market’s name changed from Modi’s interview where he mentioned ‘Khan Market gang‘, the elites in media circle who believe they have built Modi’s image. “I want the name to be changed because lord Valmiki is a part of our rich history. When such a big market will get Valmiki ji’s name, every tourist coming will get to know about our mythological past,” he added.

In a recent interview, taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi, had said, “(Modi’s image, whether good or bad, has not been made by the Khan Market gang or the Lutyens Delhi. It has been built by hard work of over 45years.) You cannot dismantle it.” He had stated further, “Every pollster, media, Lutyens Club, the Khan Market gang, was eager to defeat us and predictions were being made that we will wind up with about 40 seats in all three states.”

The media, then, had even proceeded to provoke the traders against the Prime Minister but were left bitterly disappointed when the traders replied that Narendra Modi was not referring to them.
