WE PROVIDE LIVES TO LIFE

RESPONSIBILITY TO İZMİRLİYE
Minister Yildirim, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality and TCDD's partnership in İZBAN, the question of which is more invested in the question, ile We did a job in Izmir. We have introduced a transport system called İZBAN. 2 has been serving for years and millions of people benefit from it. Izmir has no objection, no voice, but İZBAN continues to be an instrument of politics. I see this as injustice to the people of Izmir. I do not think that the partnership has a positive contribution to the healthy continuation of the partnership. We're not going into these accounts. We've said many times what possibilities he puts forth and what he does. We think it is inappropriate to raise this meaningless debate. Who does not contribute to how important, but the important thing to do business in Izmir provided, whether it made their life easier to look at this. From now on, we won't be involved in this discussion, at least we won't be involved. We see this disrespect to the people of İzmir. The municipality also does not do the ministry. We serve with the resources transferred from the citizens' taxes. No one should use this important service as an inexpensive tool of politics. The partnership is deepening beyond the end. When it comes to service, we don't look at it. No sensuality in the state. Everyone says the point that the citizen puts the point t replied.
