Our municipalities have sent millions of masks to places where our municipalities are not in their own regions when there is a demand, but those who live in the palace do not see this. Because we are among the people; We are from the People's Party, we work and produce for the people, there is no privilege in our book. Our mayors made history in this process. Everyone knows this very well. Masks were distributed to millions of people, and in-kind and cash aid was provided. Tablets were distributed to tens of thousands of students, and thousands of students were enabled to benefit from the internet. In the 21st century, there are still unified classes in Turkey. In the provinces where we have 11 Metropolitan Mayors, we aspired to build a school if the National Real Estate land was shown. I am making the same call from Izmir again. We will do. We do it because we account for every penny. We do politics for the people, not to turn the corner. We do not see politics as a means of enrichment. We are as different from them as black and white.
