AKP Government Ignored Adana Metro: MHP's Seyfettin Yılmaz and CHP Adana Provincial Chair Bulut reminded in their separate statements that Erdogan had promised Adana Metro to be transferred to the Ministry of Transport at their Adana rallies, and the government promised their municipalities a new metro and tram. while giving attention to Adana they forgot
Reminding that the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Maritime undertook the construction of new metro and tram lines in Ankara, Istanbul and Antalya, and said that the AKP government was partisanship among municipalities, Seyfettin Yılmaz, Adana Deputy of the Nationalist Movement Party, said:
“Mr. Erdogan promised many times at Adana rallies that the Adana Metro will be transferred to the Ministry of Transport. However, we see that these words are in the air. Adana has been waiting for years for the construction of the 8.5-kilometer second stage of the metro line between Akıncılar-Çukurova University. The government, which takes decisions quickly when it comes to the municipalities of its own party, lies on its ears when it comes to Adana "
MHP Adana Deputy Seyfettin Yılmaz stated that the understanding that gives privileges to AKP municipalities is partisan and that this will be punished by the Turkish Nation on June 7. Reminding that 40 percent of Adana Metropolitan Municipality's revenues were cut due to the debt of Adana Metro, Yılmaz continued as follows:
“The AKP government tries to punish Adana and the people of Adana for its unsuccessful results in the elections. He promises the election period and ignores Adana when he does not get the desired result. Metro is not a problem for any party, but for Adana. The government has to treat every region equally. A city with a population of more than 2 million cannot be punished in a partisan manner. If it continues like this, the nation will do what it takes at the ballot box. "
CHP PROVINCIAL CHAIR ALSO STATED “THE AKP IS LOOKING FOR ADANA”
On the other hand, the Republican People's Party (CHP) Adana Provincial Chairman Burhanettin Bulut said that the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications undertook the construction of metro and tram line projects in Istanbul, Ankara and Antalya with the decision of the Council of Ministers, and that both the AKP partisanship and the AKP government were in Adana. He said it was an indication of how blind he was.
CHP Adana Provincial Chair Burhanettin Bulut said in a written statement that the Ministry of Transport had the AKM-Gar-Kızılay metro line in Ankara, Yenikapı-İncirli, İncirli-Sefaköy metro line in Istanbul and Meydan-Airport-EXPO Tram in Antalya. He pointed out that despite the promises of the AKP government, the transfer of the Adana Light Rail System to the ministry did not take place.

Underlining that Adana has not received the attention and value it deserves from the AKP government for years, CHP Provincial Chairman Bulut said, “We are fully convinced that our people will give the AKP the necessary lesson at the ballot box in the parliamentary elections to be held on June 7. Adana will see the attention it deserves and develop in the CHP rule ”.
