We want you to participate in a symposium where we will take your thoughts especially on informatics, high technology and smart cities. ' We've all tried to be so kind and gracious to join us here.

“THERE WAS A DAILY DAY”
The first question asked to Imamoglu was, aslında In fact, the Minister and the President did not give a name directly, but Kanal Istanbul was their target. How do you evaluate the conversations inside ”. Imamoglu answered this question:
Sanırım I think you know which meeting we're in today. Union of Municipalities of Turkey (TBB) prepared and particularly the sharing of relevant projects put forward by the municipalities with high technology and presented an exhibition. Attached is a speech that our President will greet us. TBB President Mr. Fatma Hanım, the Mayor of Gaziantep, called the private pen and said that other mayors like me will be awarded and that these awards will be given by our President. We took care to join here. Reason; For those who don't know, TBB is ours. That is an organization managed by cutting money from the budgets of all municipalities in Turkey. Naturally, these buddies are working with the budget of the municipalities that constitute the top ranks such as TBB, especially Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Adana and Mersin. But today, unfortunately, has been a discourteous day. There are all municipalities here. As we have always expressed ministers of Turkey, assigned to ministers who have to do their duties. For example, high-tech talk. I thought that the Minister of Technology related to high-tech IT-related software will be released, will explain why they have had a deficit of 107 billion dollars in the last five years, why the difference between exports and imports is 107 billion dollars, we will say that we need to do more business together. will say. He didn't say that. The Minister of Technology spoke of a waterway whatever it had to do. Following this, the Minister of Urbanism also .. All this is wrong and we do not participate in a method. Like I said, it's been an unkind day. Moreover, of course, we can discuss the channel. We want to. Moreover, I have repeatedly asked them, 'Let us come, let's make a presentation, Mr. President'. For me, today's most precious moment was to give them my four-page letter in which I renewed my request. As far as I can see, the Minister's speech turned his attention to my letter while he was reading it. My friends have warned. ”
ORUM I REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT RIGHT ”
“The content is this; In recent days, especially the ministers 'efforts to manipulate the process with false statements, and the next day they said,' İmamoğlu stopped the subway. There is no plot movement. We have no water problems. I said, 'There is no problem with the Melen Dam', and that they conveyed false information to the President of the Republic and that I wanted to brief them. I think: I am the mayor of 16 million people. Mr. President is with our fellow countryman family. I am the mayor of this country's most valuable and largest city. Therefore, I demand this right, I want it, I want it. I gave this to the President of the Republic in writing. I am waiting for this invitation from them with a conscience and justice. I hope it happens soon. There is another problem. 30 metropolitan mayors, remember, we held a meeting about 4 months ago, in the first days of September. A promise was made to us at this meeting. In accordance with the agenda that emerged with our proposal, our President said: "A commission will be established to discuss and discuss whatever the Law is about municipalities." He determined the names himself. Counting my name as the names of our Ankara Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Mansur Yavaş and our brother, Eskişehir Mayor Yılmaz Büyükerşen and the mayors of the AK Party, 6 ministers were appointed. Then he entrusted it to Vice President Fuat Bey. Everyone should have an opinion. Why are we worried about participation? This was another shame of today. I was sad to hear, I was hijacked. Unfortunately, today has been bad. And TBB prepared a day without courtesy. I am announcing this to Fatma Hanım. We know him very kindly. Let me express that too. Who's wrong, I don't know, but he owes us an answer. 6-7 municipalities provide the largest part of the budget. It is served there with our budget. Some transfers are made to the municipalities in need. That should be done. But none of us are satisfied with the point reached today. It has been a bad experience - speaking on behalf of all municipalities - for us to be strong local mayors. "
VAR I have many jobs waiting for me in Istanbul ”
Imamoglu, the question whether they will continue the meeting, “For us, the meeting is over. Not necessary. Think about it, I'm gonna tell you what. If the agenda is the agenda in the morning, I'm going to go out on a polemic with them. We don't have that style. I have a lot of work waiting for me in Istanbul. He has a lot of work waiting for my friends in their city. Mayor of Ankara Metropolitan Mayor, through this door, will solve 100 jobs. Our agenda is very busy. This place only makes us futile today. We don't want it.. Another question posed to Imamoglu was “You said that I sent a letter about Istanbul. I don't think there's only Kanal Istanbul in that letter. There is the subject of being included in the investment plan for metro lines. Is there an explanation about these ”. Imamoglu, this question, “There is a wrong term. Not included in the investment plan. After the investment plan was going to go to the treasury. Approval would be requested. That's what we want now. Since it is not included in the investment plan, there is no treasury agenda. There's a recipe wrong. There's no point in looking for anything there. We are waiting. If they invite me, which I want very much, Mr. President has every citizen in 82 million, he owes me 1 million times. Because I'm asking 16 million people to make an appointment. I want this invitation with all my sincerity, conscience and municipality. I conveyed all these feelings. In spite of everything, I expect a positive response ”.
QUESTION OF CEMEVS
Imamoglu said, “There was a decision about the Cemevleri from the Izmir Municipal Council. If I'm not mistaken, it was in your projects. You said we had a lot to do. When do you intend to bring this project to the agenda?, Maybe you missed it. It was brought up on Monday and sent to the commission. According to the Commission's decision, I think we have a meeting tomorrow, Thursday. I hope that this decision for the worship of our Alevi citizens in this country is taken unanimously by the conscience of all. We cannot decide who should use it as a place of worship. This is necessary for the conscience of millions of Alevi citizens. It's on the commission right now. I wish all of our parties in the IMM to decide this policy aside, with all their conscience, morality and beliefs of justice. I hope there will be a positive response this week ”.
“WE WERE ATTENDED AND PARTICIPATED IN THE INVITATION INVITATION”
İmamoğlu said, “You said that an award would be given. What is this award?:
Var There are projects prepared by our municipalities about information technologies. These were probably studied by the selection committees. We also had a very special software study about a signaling institution. The award was approved. Every municipality had valuable projects. But the subtlety of the invitation to us is: 'We are very desirable to participate. You must be valuable to us. Because our President will give you the award and present it. We want you to participate in a symposium where we will take your thoughts especially on informatics, high technology and smart cities. ' We've all tried to be so kind and gracious to join us here. But the process was managed with a 180 degree different psychology. Again, those who say it are the real hosts of UMT. ”
