During the 17-year AKP rule, 94 people died and more than 500 citizens were injured in at least six fatal train accidents.

Stating that there is a need for preventive work on railroad accidents but that the regulation is full of great deficiencies in this sense, Eroğlu said, orsa If such a work is being done, the cause of the accident and the people carrying responsibility should be investigated and sanctioned. The real responsible persons were not included in the investigation. It is seen by the regulation that this practice will continue. We believe that the audit results of those responsible may be hidden due to the confidentiality and the absence of sanctions. The investigation, which is not the subject of an investigation, does not matter ”. (I Gerçekgünde)
