İBB President Ekrem İmamoğlu started morale visits to the personnel who have to work in the coronavirus epidemic process and do public service. İmamoğlu, who made the first visits to the subway and tram drivers and waste incineration workers, almost rebelled against the subjects that occupied the country's agenda in such an important process. "In a period like this, if you look at the" agenda of our country ", frankly that agenda also infuriates me," said İmamoğlu, "I am very sorry. This is not the right agenda. However, there are rules to manage all kinds of mobilization well: You will compromise; You will come together unconditionally. ”
Ekrem İmamoğlu, the Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM), started moral visits to the personnel of public institutions who have to work in the coronavirus epidemic, which affects the whole world. Imamoğlu made his first visit to the metro and tram drivers at the rest facility in Topkapı, the first stop of the Topkapı - Masjid-i Selam T4 Tram Line. In the meeting held in accordance with the social distance rules, Metro A.Ş. Özgür Soy, the General Manager, did. Soy said, “These are our friends who applaud their health workers every day and bring them home and work. We always applaud them. Unfortunately, we also had some sick friends recently. There were also quarantine entrants. We continue with difficulty. Thank God we don't have a friend who is in critical condition. We expect those who have recovered to join us again. We are experiencing such a difficult process. We will survive with your support. ”
“WE ARE THE WITNESSES OF HISTORY”
Speaking after Soy, İmamoğlu expressed his happiness to come to a meeting with the employees. Saying, “Both our country and the world are going through a very interesting process,” İmamoğlu said, “This is a pandemic process where the whole world feels each other and follows the process for the first time. We are a kind of witness to history. Another responsibility arises in people who experience such periods. There is also an obligation to make a strict preparation for the next period. In this sense, I am one of those who think that the rules will be rewritten, the world will step into a new order, and we all have a responsibility at this point. This process has no simple reading in my mind. "When I make contact from different parts of the world, I listen to similar feelings from those who are administrators in cities like us."
“YOU WILL COME WITHOUT REGISTERED UNDERSTANDING”
"If you look at the" agenda of our country "in such a period, frankly that agenda also infuriates me," said Imamoglu, "I am very sorry. What is the agenda of our country? This is not the right agenda. However, there are rules to manage all kinds of mobilization well: You will compromise; You will come together unconditionally. According to the content of the subject, you will manage the process with its experts. The experts of this process are scientists of certain definitions. You will manage with them. You will do what they say 'do'; You will apply what he says 'apply'. Unfortunately, if you do not apply them, do not act on some political or other concepts, you cannot achieve good results. The current agenda in our country makes me very, very sad. What should be the agenda? Here must be the reason we came here. So what is it? We try to provide transportation services. The transportation service has heroes; You are the ones. Duty done in difficult conditions. How long will our people stay healthy? How long can this service be maintained? We are responsible for all these planning, calculations and backups. This is not a simple matter. While continuing service, I pray for the health of all of you. God bless all of you and your family. ”
“HEALTH TO THE WORK OF OUR ALL FRIENDS”
After meeting in Topkapı, İmamoğlu went to Kemerburgaz and met with the employees of İSTAÇ Medical Waste Incineration Center. İmamoğlu is in the center, together with the employees, İSTAÇ A.Ş. General Manager Mustafa Canlı was welcomed. Informing İmamoğlu about their work as an affiliate, Canlı stated that they lost one of their employees due to Covid-19 in this process. Wishing mercy from Allah for the employee who lost his life, İmamoğlu said, “Unfortunately, this will happen. But to minimize and take great precautions, the system should be managed without the trouble. Waste management is also an indispensable system for a city. Health to the labor of all our friends. ”
