Utku Çakırözer, Deputy of CHP Eskişehir, brought to the agenda TÜLOMSAŞ, which was affiliated with the company established under the name of TÜRASAŞ in Ankara with the Decree of the President, in the 2021 budget negotiations of the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure in the Turkish Grand National Assembly.
Utku Çakırözer of the CHP said that TÜLOMSAŞ, which was affiliated to TÜRASAŞ with the decree published in March, lost its old character, “You have pacified TÜLOMSAŞ, the producing institution for years, because we will find seats for bureaucrats leaving Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. TÜLOMSAŞ, which took place in the first 500 of the Istanbul Chamber of Industry in the last five years, made a turnover of 400 million lira last year and made a profit of 10 million lira, has come to the point of declaring loss this year. Employees have no morale, no new jobs, no projects. You finished the huge factory. "Such a company, there is no such planning," he said.
Çakırözer also brought up the changes of duty at TCDD and said, “We see such things that presidents, vice presidents, regional directors, station managers, deputies, and tellers are exiled. Has the government changed? What are these personnel exiles ”he asked. Çakırözer asked Minister Karaismailoğlu to punish those who were responsible for train accidents on the railways.
"Profit-Making Institution Has Arrived at the Loss Explanation Point"
Utku Çakırözer, Deputy of CHP Eskişehir, brought the latest status of TÜLOMSAŞ, which was affiliated to the company established in Ankara under the name of TÜRASAŞ, on the agenda of Minister Adil Karaismailoğlu with the Presidential Decree published in March in the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure budget negotiations at the TBMM Plan and Budget Committee. Çakırözer said that the nature of TÜLOMSAŞ was destroyed after the General Directorate of TÜLOMSAŞ was connected to the company established in Ankara, and conveyed the process.
Stating that TÜLOMSAŞ has been made passive, Çakırözer said, “Rail systems and aviation systems are important in terms of export targets. in rail systems are important goals that we set for the Turkey. However, instead of protecting our important industrial institutions, we render them passive. TÜLOMSAŞ in Eskişehir, TÜVASAŞ in Adapazarı, TÜDEMSAŞ in Sivas were merged and its name was 'TÜRASAŞ'. A new company was established, a bureaucrat who left the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality came to its head, a staff was established. But we unfortunately saw that the quality of these institutions was destroyed after this merger. Let me give you an example from TÜLOMSAŞ. In the last five years, in the first 500 and first thousand of the Istanbul Chamber of Industry; TÜLOMSAŞ, which made 400 million lira turnover and 10 million lira profit last year, came to the point of declaring loss this year. We meet with the workers working there in Eskişehir. None of them are satisfied, they have no morale. Because there are no new jobs, no projects. "TULOMSAS, which made an agreement with General Electric to produce 50 locomotives and exported 11 of them, unfortunately does not have that old situation anymore."
"100 million loss to Eskişehir"
Çakırözer, reminding that TÜLOMSAŞ, together with its subcontractors, provided a business potential of 100 million lira annually to the sub-industry of Eskişehir, stated that the passivation of TÜLOMSAŞ damaged the Eskişehir industry. Çakırözer said, “Passivation of TÜLOMSAŞ harms both Eskişehir and the country's economy. Orders are given from Ankara. If the opportunity comes to Eskişehir, he will be able to benefit from those opportunities. Such a company, no such planning. "There is a problem in these plans."
The Company Doesn't Even Have a Website!
Stating that even a website of the company established under the name of TÜRASAŞ could not be activated, Çakırözer said, “Even the website of TÜRASAŞ, the new company you established, could not be activated. So someone from abroad said, 'Ya, is there such a person? What happened to this company? ' There is no site that they can do research. This does not happen. When we say export targets, it is unacceptable to have them, ”he said.
