Chp'li Büyükerşen, Appreciation of the Government's Railway Projects: Republican People's Party (CHP) Eskişehir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Prof. Dr. Yılmaz Büyükerşen stated that he appreciated a project that the government made on transportation and said, "There is only one good thing this government has done, as a CHP member, it has focused on railways."
Municipal Büyükerşen Speaking at a press conference in the building of the European Union as a solution to transportation problems in Eskisehir in Turkey and pointed to practices in the country. Stating that the European Union and the Council of Europe have been trying to enter for years, Prof. Dr. Yılmaz Büyükerşen, "They did not bring more files open agenda in Turkey. 'Make sure you do the following to get to Turkey, the horse also include' did not he. It is not their turn yet. There is a decision to ensure that all kinds of rubber-wheeled vehicles, including automobiles, are stopped immediately and not even motorcycles are allowed in the city centers in the city, where shopping is intense and people are concentrated. All European Union countries obey these in cities. There is not as much driver freedom as in Eskişehir. He never thinks about it when buying a car. He takes the car, he gets on. Good, good. Look at cars, private cars, most of them have one person. One person in 60 percent, maybe 20 people in 2 percent goes, here is a family of 5-6 people in 3 percent and 4 in 80. Take a look at single-person cars. You drive a 1,5 ton vehicle to transport a XNUMX-pound person. In Turkey there is no oil, we import from outside. When you turn on the televisions, you see that banks give car loans at zero interest, that is, they encourage them. Of course, the country has neither an urban transportation policy nor an intercity transportation policy, ”he said.
”THIS GOVERNMENT HAS ONE SINGLE TIME“
Büyükerşen said “There is only one good thing this government has done” and continued as follows:
“I am saying as a CHP member; that he gave weight to the railways. In other words, it is based on the idea of making transportation cheaper by shifting to railways rather than highways, or whether it is based on a little pretentiousness, saying 'We did this too', I do not know. It can also be a subject of discussion. They will also privatize. Those who will privatize will also sell the State Railways. Before the same Republic, during the Ottoman Empire period, foreign companies operated trains, trams were operated, the French, Germans and they received money per kilometer. When we declared our independence with the Republic, we nationalized them as the first thing. If they privatize now, they will return to those days, such a process will begin.
