Tram response from CHP's Pond to AK Party's Reyhan
Republican People's Party (CHP) Provincial Chair Erman Gölet criticized the statements of AK Party Provincial Chair Süleyman Reyhan regarding the 2013 budget of the Metropolitan Municipality.
Pond, at the press conference held at the Provincial Directorate, arguing that Reyhan's statements were due to his ignorance, and evaluated Reyhan's statements that "the tram extension lines are not finished due to the municipality's not investing".
“Mr. Reyhan does not know that, according to the procedure, tram projects must first be included in the State Investment Program by the State Planning Organization (DPT). Only after that, if the project is approved by the Ministry of Transport, the Treasury can provide external credit to the project. However, as Eskişehir residents know very well, SPO did not include the project in investment programs for years due to pressures and the Ministry of Transport did not approve the project until 2011. Therefore, the Treasury did not provide external credit to the Municipality. The Tram Lines Construction Project was also included in the strategic plan of the Metropolitan Municipality for the 2011-2015 period, starting in the second half of 2011 and ending at the end of 2013, and the budget was arranged accordingly. The construction works of the lines still continue in this direction. "
Pointing out Reyhan's transfer of expenditures related to Eskişehir's cultural and artistic activities, Gölet argued that the AK Party intends to put an end to its cultural and artistic activities and said, “They do not know that the allowances allocated to the art service and the allowances allocated to the tram are not the same thing, and "It is unacceptable to use ridiculous criticism as its construction can be finished.
