TCDD is not the capital but the people
Öğüt reacted to the sale of TCDD under the name of liberalization.
Turkey About Draft Law on Railway Transport Liberalization of talks began last week in the Parliamentary General Assembly. CHP Istanbul Deputy Kadir Gökmen Öğüt also responded to the bill, which received great reaction from the public on the grounds that it paved the way for the privatization of railways under the name of "liberalization" and the monopoly of the private sector.

Öğüt said that the law had a single aim from the beginning to the end, and that the use of the word CD liberalization inin meant privatization. It was inevitable that the TCDD would be restructured and adapted to the requirements of the age.

Saying that “TCDD should serve the public, not the capital,” Öğüt stated that, by law, traditional railway transportation will be interrupted and passed to foreign hands, and that already knowledgeable and experienced employees will be retired and subcontractor workers with an unsecured working system will be brought to their places.

Stating that TCDD's immovables will be disposed of over time, CHP's Öğüt said, “In case the bill becomes legal, railway transportation, which is still an alternative and important transportation network for large segments, will become expensive. "It will be inevitable to experience accidents and disruptions, as the experience of the staff that will be brought to their places with the liquidation of the employees who have been working for this job for many years will be discussed."


Öğüt stated that the privatization plan of the railways was prepared in advance, and that Haydarpaşa Station was gradually disabled with an organized operation, the connection of Istanbul to Anatolia was cut with the cancellation of the flights, and the workers, civil servants and students who chose the cheap and safe road were victimized.

Öğüt said, "AKP, which does not know and does not care about the money that goes into the pockets of the people, is in the trouble of filling the pockets of its own supporters", continued his words as follows.

“Arms were plastered for a new zoning operation, leaving Haydarpaşa dysfunctional and distracting the public. As if it wasn't enough that they spoiled the whole silhouette of Istanbul, plans are now being made to destroy Haydarpaşa and its surroundings. So far, except for Turkey is unprecedented in any country where the destruction of cultural values. Haydarpaşa is everyone's nostalgia with a hundred and five years of history. Haydarpaşa smells not only of history, but longing, joy, and tears. Touching there means betrayal of history and betrayal of the people. However, in the zoning plan prepared by the AKP members of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Council, it was decided to organize Haydarpaşa Train Station as a cultural facility and accommodation area. 1,5 thousand square meters of the 817 million square meter area will be reserved for construction. The last public area of ​​Istanbul will be opened to dense construction and will become a hotel and trade center. "

Öğüt also said that the most important institutions of the republic were disposed of by being privatized for the first time during the AKP period and said, “One day the AKP will fall under those rails. "The railways belong to the people and the people should stay."
