What would have happened if our two friends who were farmers were in the Parliament, if they told about our troubles and troubles, but I do not blame politicians. We, who are responsible for this, are the heads of the mass organization. People at the head of mass organizations have to be transparent. 40 governments came in 25 years, we got the best minimum wage in Erbakan time, I am saying that he was not alive.

Politics should not give them an opportunity. "
