Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) President Ekrem İmamoğluAfter the Dudullu-Bostancı Metro Line Start Ceremony, he answered the questions of the journalists about the use of fireworks, which came to the fore after the explosion in Sakarya. İmamoğlu said, “After the disaster at the fireworks factory, many municipalities decided to ban fireworks? What is the decision of the IMM in this direction, will the issue come to the agenda of the parliament?” He gave the following answer to the questions:
“I WILL SPEAK THIS TOPIC WITH OUR DIRECTOR”
“Sakarya upset us very much. Yesterday, when we came back from Istanbul to Istanbul, we came across with the family of a martyr and got a little bit of trouble. We are very sorry for all our martyrs, our losses. I think, especially, that I feel that the second event is not a work accident but a negligence. It has to be investigated. Therefore, this incident in Sakarya Hendek will remind us of those days and our painful losses there, even if we see a tragic situation or fireworks. Therefore, we do not do such an application in Istanbul, it is not finished, nor we want to see such an application anywhere in Istanbul. In this sense, we wish our Governorship to do what is necessary. Because some permissions are not related to us. But we will no longer use fireworks in any of our events. We find different methods of this. We make our celebrations with many different systems. I wish only one of our lives hadn't died there. We bring a matter that is not under our authority to the parliament. As I said, the governorships are authorized in this issue. Permissions are taken from there. There are applications related to some celebrations that are made by other institutions. I talk about this with our Governor. I guess he wouldn't have a different opinion with us. ”
