NO NEED FOR CONTROL OF ROAD STORAGE BY THE MINISTER
Following the statements of TMMOB and the United Transport Union that "the dismissal of the road guards was an important factor in the disaster", CHP's Candan Yüceer asked the "exclusion of the road guards who were on duty to inform the railroad lines" Minister Cahit Turhan stated that “the controls provided by the guard service are not needed in the new maintenance system”. Regarding the road guards in the response of the proposal, “The road guards do not wait at the same place, but control the daily distance of about 10 kilometers on the line on foot. In sudden events, events may occur following the passage of the road guards ”. Minister Turhan stated that in the maintenance system applied according to the Line Maintenance and Control Plan, the Railway Maintenance Manager, Road Maintenance Supervisor and Line Maintenance and repair officers carried out the line maintenance and controls "completely".
“Although there were SHORT-TERM CANCELLATIONS, NO TENDERS WERE BEEN CANCELED IN THE SHORT TERM”
Minister Cahit Turhan asked the CHP member Yüceer's question of “canceled line maintenance tenders”, “No line maintenance tender has been canceled in the short term. Although there may be short-term cancellations, the necessary maintenance and repairs are provided as soon as possible ”. It was stated that the tender, which was canceled due to 'insufficient funds' in Çorlu, was related to the maintenance in other parts of the railway line.
Response to 6 at the beginning of July in the accident area, said in a reply, inde Railroad Maintenance Manager incident occurred in the line in question in the last routine 28 2018 14.05.2018 date of the date.

The road maintenance chief has checked XNUMX times from the beginning of July until the date of the incident. Baş
“ACCORDING TO THE MINISTER, THERE IS NO DEFECT IN THE ACCIDENT, EVEN THERE IS AN ACCIDENT IN THE MIDDLE”
Minister Cahit Turhan description of the "escape from responsibility in the disaster effort" that qualifies as CHP Almighty said: "Two months ago there was one of Turkey's worst train disaster. 25 citizens, 25 people, 25 lives lost their lives. The scandals that caused the accident were tried to be forgotten by giving cocktails at the Palace the day after the incident. In the two-month period, neither the expert report on the accident was completed, nor the prosecutor's office investigation, nor any government official made a statement to enlighten the public. Now, Minister Cahit Turhan, despite saying 15 days in the Constitution, in his response to the motion after about 2 months, he explains how perfect the railway system is, that there are no flaws in the lines, the inspections are done on time and in full. According to the minister, there are no flaws, and even no accident. "
“IF THE MINISTER WANTS, I CAN PROVIDE THE METEOROLOGY INFORMATION TO ITSELF”
Or The minister is trying to take responsibility for fate, nature and the fate as the AKP government always does, by linking the tragedy of tragedy to ata excessive rainfall “. On the day of the accident 145 reported unprecedented rainfall throughout the year. TMMOB Meteorological Engineers, as stated in the TCDD report, the rainfall 7 a rainfall a year and 'rainfall in this sense is not surprising and unexpected rainfall' is clearly stated. If the minister wants it, I can send him the meteorological information. Again in the response of the Minister, the Railway Maintenance Manager states that the accident happened or even checked several times. The main director, who is the most competent section in the management of railways, is appointed as deputy in the post of deputy head, and even the main director does not have sufficient conditions according to TCDD legislation. This is even more horrible if there is such a tragedy despite the audit. ”
“BY SAYING FREE”…
Iyor Finally, the Minister states that TCDD does not 'privatize' but 'liberalization'. He is trying to hide the fact that railway transportation is being marketed and privatized with word games. The Minister said that the 'Law on the Liberalization of Railway Transport Turkey' with this law and the establishment of TCDD Transport Inc. 'railway infrastructure operators' activities as provided show; The private sector is also open for freight and passenger transport. At the same time, TCDD's investments have been reduced and locomotive maintenance and road maintenance workshops have been minimized. The process of maintenance, renewal and inspection of railways was also transferred to private companies as a result of the marketization and privatization policies, and the values created by the taxes paid by the community were transferred to the private sector. The winner was, unfortunately, not a person-centered, profit-driven 'private' company.
“THE LAST OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOSE THEIR LIFE”
“You cannot escape from the responsibility of the Çorlu train accident by trying to make the disaster forget, by blaming the nature on the fate, or by playing word games. The plague of those who lost their lives in this tragedy is on those who try to make people forget this incident, escape from responsibility, and give their transportation to private companies for the benefit of the supporters, not the people. We, as the CHP, will never allow this disaster to be forgotten by the AKP. We are in mourning and will not let our pain be forgotten. Our struggle will continue until we ask those responsible for this accident to account. "
