Thousands of buildings are either finished or incomplete. This situation causes thousands of citizens to suffer due to not knowing what to do and the city economy to be negatively affected. With the consensus we will provide with the participation of all institutions and organizations and local administrations under your leadership, we should carry our problems to Ankara and solve them.
