The opening of Marmaray has likewise been a great source of pride for me, my friends and our movement. It has been a great pleasure for me to open new schools to our children, to popularize interactive boards in schools, to give tablet computers, to hand over free books to their hands. Rescuing our nation from the outdated, unhealthy, inadequate health system and hospitals, and bringing our nation to modern and clean hospitals where it will receive humane service has also been a means of happiness for me.

The Yozgat, Sivas and connected Erzincan, Erzurum line continues at full speed.
