Description; “We request the transfer of Haydarpaşa and Sirkeci Station to Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality on condition that they are used for their primary and public purposes!
As we can see from the content of the tender specifications announced by TCDD, we have learned that some of the areas and structures in Haydarpaşa and Sirkeci Station areas and their structures will be tendered to be used for “so-called” cultural and art activities in a “nearly-buyer belirlenmiş manner. In recent days, these news are frequently published in the press with a misleading title such as irk Sirkeci Railway Station and Haydarpaşa Railway Station çıktı.
First of all, we would like to state that; Haydarpaşa and Sirkeci Train Stations and back courses are a whole. It may not be used, divided, disintegrated, rented or sold in any way contrary to its essential function, public benefit and use.
More importantly, Haydarpaşa and Sirkeci Station, which is one of the most important identity elements of Istanbul, are the assets that we are obliged to carry to future generations while preserving their importance, integrity and function.

One of the biggest betrayals of this city would be to try to privatize these areas, which are not legally valid, in pieces, which should be put into the service of the public at full capacity in line with this clear fact and necessity.
Also; The Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, which tries to prevent the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality from participating in the tender, which is aware of the public responsibility and the vital importance of the field, once again publicly warns its management and invites them to its original duty.
The Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure once again declares to us that we will not play as sensitive citizens, Kadıköylüler, Üsküdarlılar and İstanbul residents, and will not enter the “storm and rent ant; If they cannot claim these structures and areas, we demand that they cancel the tender and transfer them to the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality on condition that they are used for their primary and public purposes.
