The government should stop punishing Adana," he said.
“DO NOT LET THE LANDS LOOK AT RANTA SAVIOR”
Stating that approximately 400 officers, workers, machinists and technicians are working in the wagon and locomotive workshops of TCDD, which is planned to be moved to Mersin Yenice, Ayhan Barut said: “Adana will lose blood again due to this relocation. Our working brothers and sisters working here will also be adversely affected by this process. In addition, we are concerned that the lands in the city center where the workshops to be evacuated will be sacrificed for rent. These workshops meet the need and it is not essential to move them. If this relocation happens, only one station will remain in Adana, where passengers can get on and off. We cannot accept this. The government should know that Adana is not a stepchild and an owner. But during the AKP rule, Adana is constantly being taken back.”
