The press release read as follows;
Dear Kadıköylüler, Üsküdarlı, Maltepeliler, Istanbul residents!
Some of the areas in Haydarpaşa and Sirkeci Station areas and the structures on them were put out to tender for rent by TCDD for “supposed” cultural and art activities, 2. The remaining IMM partnership companies were eliminated from the tender with the excuse of water without being invited, and submitted to the tender address and submitted to Hezarfen Consulting, the company of the former director of the Okcular Foundation.
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.
The protection and use of these important assets in line with their essential functions is the responsibility and responsibility of us as well as sensitive institutions and citizens, as well as the protection boards, municipalities and TCDD and related administrations and public institutions.
In our city, once again faced with the reality of the earthquake; Sirkeci Railway Station, Haydarpaşa Railway Station, port, pier and back areas in the event of a disaster, especially in connection with the sea in terms of logistics of our city, the vital importance of the provision and evacuation of the vital importance, is evident as a clear and irrefutable reality.
In line with this clear fact and necessity, the privatization of these areas which should be put into the service of the public at full capacity by means of tenders delivered to the address without legal validity will be one of the biggest betrayals to be made to this city.
Also; aware of the importance of public responsibility and the field of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality from the beginning of trying to prevent the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, TCDD officials who made a tender for the delivery of an irregular address to the public and once again warned officials to fulfill their essential duties invite.
We, as sensitive citizens, Kadıköylüler, Üsküdarlılar, Maltepeliler and İstanbullılar, will once again declare to TCDD and their authorities that we will not come to the game and do not pass the “talana and rent”; we demand that the fields be canceled and transferred to the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality on condition that they are used for their primary and public purposes.
No game and no room for deception!
May Haydarpasa and Sirkeci tenders be canceled!
Areas; transfer to the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality on condition that it is used for its primary and public purposes.
