Following the EIA report prepared for Kanal Istanbul, IMM President Ekrem İmamoğlu filed a petition for the “Change of the European Side Reserve Building Area 1 / 100.000 Scale Environmental Plan”.
Imamoglu, before the appeal of journalists from the phaeton to the process of accepting cemevler as a place of worship answered many questions. Imamoglu asked the President about the content of the 4-page letter he delivered to Erdogan in Ankara: “I wrote in our letter that there were people who wanted the channels between the IMM and the central government to be corrupted, and that this should not be allowed. Not like some people wrote in the paper. I'm not going to explain the Channel in a 4-page letter. I'd like to talk about it in person. I want to talk face to face, I want to give a briefing, Istanbul today and tomorrow, we've wanted to transfer them by a very friendly language, Istanbul as the Head of the Metropolitan, Turkey's highest ever vote selected the number as mayor of talks with Turkey's President in Istanbul I submitted my request. The subsequent appreciation, the conscience and the sense of justice will be given to the President. I am waiting for my response on behalf of the people of Istanbul with curiosity and frankly, I have not received an answer yet ”.
Following the EIA report prepared for Kanal İstanbul, Ekrem İmamoğlu, the Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM), filed an appeal for the “Change of the European Side Reserve Building Area 1 / 100.000 Scale Environmental Plan”. Imamoglu, before submitting a petition to appeal the questions of journalists in front of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanism in front of Besiktas Provincial Directorate answered. The questions asked by Imamoglu and the answers given by the IMM President were as follows:
“WE ARE WORKING TO PREVENT Betrayal to Istanbul”
“You came to appeal a while ago. Then you came to appeal to the EIA report. That report, despite all objections, was adopted today by the Ministry of Environment. Now you're here again. How will you evaluate and why are you here today? ”
You know, about the EIA report, tens of thousands of our people applied. Today, the Ministry has made the decision to accept the EIA on this issue. It is actually not a surprising decision for us. We will continue to follow the processes moment by moment. First of all, the reason for the development today; I will object to the suspended plans. The plans of 100.000 were decided by the Ministry on behalf of Istanbul residents, irregularly, without any public sharing, without taking the opinions of the components of the society and stakeholders on the process, and without discussing the contributions of the newly arrived Istanbul administration to the process at a table. The process of changing the 100.000 plan, which is called the city constitution and the immutable rules of the city, was made with the style of rushing everything to junk food and was suspended. There is a suspension period until the end of this month and I will object to this plan today. I will give my objection within the law of hometown. We will appeal; but we do not end the process here. Society, individuals, IMM, other institutions and non-governmental organizations have the right to open a court for the EIA report. I will personally exercise my right to open a court on this matter. I know that the society will use this at the highest level. For example; I feel that by the end of this month, all Istanbul residents will sacrifice their right to object to this plan. They will also come to the representatives of the Ministry of Urbanization and make their objections. Then, after the suspension process is over, the decision is made, and if this is negative, there is a court process. until the end of the legal road, with greater involvement with and support of Istanbul, which is a vital problem of Istanbul and which will be influenced entirely the future, to me, the biggest betrayal concept will be held in Istanbul, (which betrayed the concept of Turkey, the agenda we fit You know who said, "We betrayed", but this betrayal is many times more than they are. We are trying to prevent it. We are trying to help those who try to make this decision, and to turn them from the big mistake of history. In this respect, they will see both the objection and legal processes and all our legal rights, so that we will continue to use millions of people until the end.
Ğ I WILL CONTINUE TO GUIDANCE ”
Yüzlerce There were hundreds of objections to the EIA report… ”
Hundreds, not tens of thousands of objections. I do not think that they make an effort to grasp the spirit of the work, let alone the examination. This is where you want to go. If you want to go somewhere with society, you will hear every sound of society. It's about your perception being clear. In the process, I know from the beginning, I do it, whether you want it or not, it is the form of invention. In this respect, I do not think that these objections, let alone examine, see, feel. In spite of everything, I think that the lawyers who are educated in the universities of this country will respond to such a dangerous process even with the troublesome legal system and that we can defend our right through law. I was expecting this decision in the EIA. I am not very hopeful in the plan; but I hope there will be tens of thousands of objections. As of today, voluntary people of Istanbul, women, men, youth will apply here with the citizenship law. But the next legal process is very important. I will continue to guide me in that sense. This is the equivalent of the duty that the Istanbul right gives me.
“WE HAVE DECIDED TO BUY HORSES DA
“The height of the amount to be released from IMM's casing about the carriages is also discussed. What's the latest on the carriages? And what are you going to tell the critics about this money? ”
Istanbul has many accumulated problems. This is one of those accumulated problems. In other words, the phaeton issue is not an issue that has occurred from yesterday to today. Phaeton is a culture that is also in the tradition of the Islands. Let's underline this. We do not ignore this. However, this process, which has been badly managed for decades, has unfortunately reached a point where we cannot fit into the conscience of any segment of the society. Unfortunately, this process has been used negatively in the Islands. This hurts people. We have been trying to find a solution to this issue for months. You can understand our tact and meticulousness here. Aside from the fact that a gigantic issue that concerns the whole of Istanbul, without being discussed in a public area, put it in front of the nation by saying 'bang', we also go to the Islands many times, talk to the stakeholders of the business, hold workshops and discuss all social dynamics on how to solve it. Our effort to mobilize and use democratic methods is actually an example. At the end of the day; The holistic decision we made - of course, in the meantime, there were also sad events and we experienced the death of the horses and the diseases they were destroyed there. Phaetons have a right from the past to the present. In other words, the phaetons there have a market value today. We, in this market value, should make a decision not to be victimized by the people who make a living from this job, that the next transportation processes will be carried out entirely as their own services, that we will provide transportation services as Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality and IETT, and once again about their disappeared rights. Our institution has declared its opinion to give 250 thousand TL to private phaeton owners. Our council has stated that it would be better to pay 300 thousand TL per phaeton with the decision of all political parties. We are now moving to this practice. We have a decision to buy horses as well. We also meet them with the governorship, the Ministry of Agriculture and relevant people. We cooperate with the maintenance and process of these in the appropriate farmhouses of the Ministry of Agriculture. We are preparing for a competition in which the horses are transported there in a really sensitive way, the rights of the carriage drivers are paid, and the new transportation system is suitable for the Islands, does not pollute the environment, electric vehicles and touristic electric vehicles are designed and participated in the process. We will ensure this transition without disrupting the service. I also know that there is a mass of people in the Islands that love phaetons without bothering or hurting anyone. I also know that this is a tradition. I feel this too, but this is the practice we are going to do at this stage. Let's also share this with the public.
S We did not want to get so ”
Iniz You requested a meeting with the President. You gave it in the letter. Is there an answer? ”
I wish there was an immediate response. We also requested the first meeting of our President in Ankara, but he planned to meet with 30 metropolitan municipalities. This was a meeting of the Union of Municipalities. Unfortunately, the first one was a meeting with a broken chair, and the second was an impolite meeting. We didn't want that. Annoying. But let me tell you; the most useful thing for me was to give our four-page letter there. In our letter, I wrote that there are people who want the channels between the IMM and the central government to be corrupted, that this should be corrected and not allowed. I've mentioned a few things. Not like some people wrote in the paper. I'm not going to explain the Channel in a 4-page letter. I'd like to talk about it in person. I want to talk face to face, I want to give a briefing, Istanbul today and tomorrow, we've wanted to transfer them by a very friendly language, Istanbul as the Head of the Metropolitan, Turkey's highest ever vote selected the number as mayor of talks with Turkey's President in Istanbul I submitted my request. The subsequent appreciation, the conscience and the sense of justice will be given to the President. I'm waiting for my reply on behalf of the people of Istanbul with curiosity and frankly, I have not yet received an answer.
“ALL THE INFORMATION GIVEN BY MINISTERS WRONG”
Hangi Which topics were included in the Channel Istanbul letter you gave to the President? ”
The elements that prevent our healthy relationship in this context, some say in the field, I think the statements that mislead Mr. President. If you call the sample; “Imamoglu canceled the subway. Or we have no water problems. Or there has not been a single century movement in the process of Kanal Istanbul. Bakan All the information these ministers gave was wrong. I use a heavier expression, and it doesn't suit. It was a letter explaining the lack of all this and how these relations should be conducted. The channel is not a letter. But I also wanted to tell him face to face all the problems of Istanbul.
“President Erdoğan said, ayrıca It is also not right for us to say in the letter, there are other things'”
I already told you what I said. Of course the letter is private. He was telling the truth. We are waiting for a special, special meeting: Ekrem İmamoğlu. Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality.
“PRESIDENT MAY ANALYSIS LAND MOVEMENTS”
“There were reports that many people, including the mother of the Emir of Qatar, had taken land on the Canal Istanbul route. Now it is not true that President Erdoğan has taken the land of the mother of the Emir of Qatar; but some CHP people are said to have taken the plot from that route 'has a claim in the form of… ”
We are glad to inform the President. Because the Minister, 'There was no land movement' he said. But we who from there who voted for the plot of the CHP, who voted for the AK Party; AK Party, who can not know who is CHP. I don't care about Qatari or anything. The rent created there is transformed into a land movement by someone before and knowing where to get it… I think Mr. President should analyze it. Who is party, who AK Party, who is not the CHP.
MI Are the theologians who make the decision to make a place to be a place of worship??
“A resolution passed yesterday. The request of the CHP group to grant worship status to Cemevleri was not found appropriate. Cemevleri'nin free decision to benefit from cleaning and similar services. Will you veto this decision? ”
Let me tell you once; Of course, whether or not this decision is issued, these issues are the works that IMM can do. The people of Istanbul have a quest for spirituality and a sense of equality. The process that Cemevler is a place of worship cannot be as much as spiritual satisfaction in the law of Istanbulites saying 'Yes it is'. In other words, I wanted to let the members of the IMM live and feel it. 'Sir, why did not this petition Imamoglu' is said. Let the Assembly do this. If Imamoglu gave it then 'Look here is using. Politics is a tool 'We did not,' Why did not he? ' These are very funny agenda issues. 'The theologians decide whether a place of worship or not,' Which theologians? Theologians who made the decision of interest? Which ones? Plus, how right is a theologian with one belief to make a decision about another? What else will decide the shape of the place where millions of Alevi citizens have accepted places of worship for centuries? Those who refer to the law have made these decisions in all legal areas. I was very upset, I was very upset with the discussions. The BEST Party Group Vice President reminded me of a very nice Hadith. Yes, we believe in a Prophet who says, 'All earth is a place of worship.' I was very sorry for those two parties who couldn't take this chance when it could be done this way. But I will continue to struggle.
“What are you going to do?”
You will see him in time…
