IMM President Ekrem İmamoğlu, visited the historical Grand Bazaar. İmamoğlu's trip to the Grand Bazaar was marked by the "transport increase dialogue" he had with a citizen. Protesting the 35 percent hike in transportation, the citizen shouted to İmamoğlu, "Why did you make the hike that could not be made for 3 years?" The following interesting dialogues took place between İmamoğlu, who turned towards the voice, and the citizen. İmamoğlu, who went to the citizen who asked the question "35 percent why", said to the citizen, "The foreign exchange is increasing, the diesel oil is increasing, the fuel is increasing, the natural gas is increasing. These are not in our hands. I beg you to react to them as well. React to them too.”
FIRST CITIZEN: “WE DO NOT ACCEPT 35 PERCENT”
SECOND CITIZENS: “MY CHAIRMAN IS THE RIGHT WAY; GO ON…"
İmamoğlu's Grand Bazaar tour marked the “transportation hike dialogue” with a citizen. Protesting the 35 percent hike in transportation, the citizen shouted to Imamoglu, saying, "Why did you do the hike that could not be done in 3 years?" The following interesting dialogue took place between Imamoglu and the citizen, who turned towards the voice:
Imamoglu: Let's talk without shouting.
Citizen: Why 35 percent?
Imamoglu: You asked for the hike, let's answer. We had to raise.
Citizen: Thank you, thank you. Make 3 liras.
Imamoglu: We do not enjoy. If I do not raise now, it is worse after 1 year. There are both standard problems and other problems related to transportation and service. Another subject; we contributed to the student. We came to the student…
Citizen: Right, right.
Imamoglu: We reduced the student from 85 to 50 liras.
Citizen: True; you did, you are right. We agree with him.
Imamoglu: Now our subsidy subsidy for 3 years, 4 years, 3 quadrillion 600 billion (in old money). Why? In the past year, there are only 1 percent fuel hikes. Our transportation-related maintenance services have increased by over 40 percent. I have to serve.
Citizen: Before the election, you said about transportation; 'I will download my transportation'.
Imamoglu: We download. Look, you're talking about February to March last year. 1 year has passed.
Citizen: You said, "Everything will be very nice."
Imamoglu: It will, it will ... It does not! Why not? Foreign currency increases, diesel fuel increases, fuel increases, natural gas increases. These are not in our hands. React to them too and I'll bother you. React to them…
Citizen: My president, we don't accept 35 percent.
Second citizen: My president, you are on the right track; go on…
