Republican People's Party (CHP) Ardahan Deputy Ensar Öğüt, who has been visiting Kars for two days in Kars, claimed that the Call Center employees opened by the Minister of Transport Binali Yıldırım with 300 people had fallen to 20 people and that they had been stopped for about a year in their work on the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway line. .
Ensar Öğüt, CHP Ardahan Deputy, made striking statements at a press conference in Kars. Öğüt said that 300 thousand people should be employed in Kars, not 3 people.
Ensar Öğüt, CHP Ardahan Deputy; Stating that the region has great problems, he said: “So when you consider not only Kars, Ardahan, Iğdır, but also Eastern Anatolia, there are some studies for the development and development of this region. Here, for example, a Call Center was opened to provide employment and eliminate unemployment. They said 300 people will be employed. But now it's down to 20 people. This shows the insensitivity of power. It shows the perspective of the government towards Kars. Whereas in a center like Kars, not 300 people, in my opinion, if they provide employment for 300 people and 3 thousand people, then immigration will stop in Kars. ”
Drawing attention to the fact that approximately 20 million tons of cargo will be transported from Kars with the BTK Railway line, CHP Ardahan Deputy Ensar Öğüt; He said: “Of course, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway is the gate of the Caucasus, Kars-Baku-Tbilisi Railway has unfortunately stopped. The reason for it is the government. I'm asking here and calling out. They should hold a summit meeting for the President of Azerbaijan, the Georgian officials and our officials as soon as possible. Let these 3 countries accelerate here at the end of the BTK railway. As you know, Kars-Baku-Tbilisi Railway will reach 2013; so it was going to open this year. Unfortunately, the opening situation is now doubting in 2014-2015.
Advice, a railway extending to China, the Silk Road was told that when the absolute network built with iron and Turkey would be a huge contribution towards Kars. Ensar Öğüt, CHP Ardahan Member of Parliament, said, "What is the reason for the cessation of BTK?" He answered the question as follows: “It is probably finance, money. Because this money is also paid by three countries, I say for this the leaders of the 3 countries should have a summit meeting in a short time. It needs to make a budget revision again. In other words, if there is no money without that budget revision, BTK railway may be halfway through.
SIX MILLION TONS OF RAIL TRANSPORT IN TURKEY
Turkey, indicating that the annual 6 million tons of rail transport Ansar counsel, was finished by saying: "When the end comes, the BTK railroad carried 26 million tons. So 20 million tons will come and go from here. Kazakhstan already says that I will undertake 10 million tons. 10 million tons says only I will transport. Because of a railway extending to China, when the Silk Road, the absolute network built with iron will be a great contribution toward Turkey and Kars. In this sense, the immediate emergency of the three countries namely Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey are leaders met again and got a budget adjustment to declare the date of expiry of the BTK railway.
