Highlights from Minister Elvan's speech:
I thank everyone who did not leave us alone. Today we are living an important day. Everyone should know how and how we won these important days. There was stability with the AK Party government. With the strong approach of our government, we have made significant investments in many areas from health to transportation, from economy to education. As we made these investments, our citizens' confidence in us increased. I am asking you which party could present the YHT project as a project 12 years ago? Here we have realized dream projects. Who would have told you that you can reach Istanbul from Karaman in 4 hours? Yes, four hours.
But unfortunately there are those who want to stop this stability in Turkey. Those who have no expectations from the national will are the game of those who want to spoil the stability.
We should not give any marginal group bonuses. Criticize your criticism. This country is ours, all of us. It is not the limit for anyone to destroy this country.
With this project, the competitiveness of our industrialists will increase significantly.
The line from Konya to Karaman will be an important industrial line. We cannot distinguish between Konya and Karaman. You will see industrial lines on the Konya Çumra Karaman line. Konya-Karaman line will be the second attraction center.
We will continue to produce services. You are people who love their country. You are people who love stability. 30 will blow the crates in March. I believe it.
God help us and get half.
Following the speeches, the first stage of the Konya-Karaman-Ulukisla-Yenice-Adana High Speed Train Project, Konya-Karaman, was laid with the ceremony.
