İBB President Ekrem İmamoğlu answered the questions of journalists about the use of fireworks after the explosions in Sakarya Hendek and subsequent disasters. "We do not do such an application in Istanbul, it is over, nor we want to see such an application anywhere in Istanbul," Imamoglu said.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) President Ekrem Imamoglu answered the questions of journalists about the use of fireworks after the explosion in Sakarya, after the Dudullu-Bostanci Metro Line Start Ceremony. İmamoğlu said, “After the disaster at the fireworks factory, many municipalities have decided to ban fireworks? What is the IMM's decision in this direction, does the issue come to the agenda of the parliament?
“I WILL SPEAK THIS TOPIC WITH OUR DIRECTOR”
“Sakarya upset us very much. Yesterday, when we came back from Istanbul to Istanbul, we came across with the family of a martyr and got a little bit of trouble. We are very sorry for all our martyrs, our losses. I think, especially, that I feel that the second event is not a work accident but a negligence. It has to be investigated. Therefore, this incident in Sakarya Hendek will remind us of those days and our painful losses there, even if we see a tragic situation or fireworks. Therefore, we do not do such an application in Istanbul, it is not finished, nor we want to see such an application anywhere in Istanbul. In this sense, we wish our Governorship to do what is necessary. Because some permissions are not related to us. But we will no longer use fireworks in any of our events. We find different methods of this. We make our celebrations with many different systems. I wish only one of our lives hadn't died there. We bring a matter that is not under our authority to the parliament. As I said, the governorships are authorized in this issue. Permissions are taken from there. There are applications related to some celebrations that are made by other institutions. I talk about this with our Governor. I guess he wouldn't have a different opinion with us. ”
