İBB President Ekrem İmamoğlu attended the “Haramidere Wastewater Collector Groundbreaking Ceremony”, which will solve this problem of Esenyurt, who experienced flood disaster last June 23.
Following the flood disaster that caused the death of Syrian citizen Ahmet Şaban, İmamoğlu said, “But what I want to express is not this side. These are the result of an event. We do not want to experience this result. Climate change is really one of the chronic problems of the world. A mind that remains insensitive to this, not to manage this process, but to reveal other priorities should be ready to face any kind of disaster. In other words, if you are not dealing with such problems and dealing with Kanal Istanbul, which will be the biggest disaster in Istanbul for me, you are preparing Istanbul to experience the bigger of this disaster. Let's put aside all the processes described as 'betrayal' until today; Making Canal Istanbul to Istanbul is a thousand times more betrayal than all of these betrayals. ”
İmamoğlu attending the Haramidere Wastewater Collector Groundbreaking Ceremony; Esenyurt Mayor Kemal Deniz Bozkurt, Avcılar Mayor Turan Hançerli, İBB's new Secretary General Can Akın Çağlar and İSKİ General Manager Raif Mermutlu. İmamoğlu, who received technical information about the project from Mermutlu, invited the members of the press who followed him to the edge of Haramidere, which came to the agenda with floods. İmamoğlu used the following statements in his statement by the stream:
“The cross section of Haramidere. Certain side arms are made, but since the cross section is not designed accordingly, it is one of the main reasons of these raids. It is actually a very simple rule. The bridge built here is so wrong. Both the section is narrow and the bridge is a walking bridge. It has a shape that holds all the scum, so to speak. Therefore, it has a scheme to cause clogging and overflow. The worst thing is that the waste water still flows from the stream. We will share with you the work we initiated to overcome all these problems. Because Esenyurt really had a bitter incident here. One person also died. Esenyurt Mayor has been busy serving there ever since. We are trying to help. Governorate also helps. But ultimately, this view we see here is the main reason for this work. Pull this out that when the work is done, you can see both the difference in cross section and the difference in bridge. That's why we showed this place especially. ”
“WE WERE INJURIES OF THE FLOOD DISASTER”
Imamoglu and the accompanying delegation later moved to the platform set up for the ceremony. Making the first speech at the ceremony, Mermutlu shared the technical details about the project. Speaking after Mermutlu, İmamoğlu said, “Today we are in Esenyurt. We had a very annoying event here. It was 23 June if I'm not mistaken. One of our people died with a flood we live in ”. "This is not the first event that Haramidere experienced," said İmamoğlu. "It is very important to hear the bellows of people," We have been living this constantly for the last 15-20 years. " Here, nearly 300 houses were flooded with flood. Right here, together with our Municipality of Esenyurt, Mr. Mayor, all our authorized friends showed their interest from top to bottom. We always stood by them to meet the needs of our citizens, to quickly heal their wounds, to clean their homes, to gather the streets, then to the need for food, drinks and shelter. With the work we have done with our governor, we continue to heal the wounds of our people by acting jointly on in-kind and cash aids to ensure that the next process does not make those people victimized. In this sense, working with great devotion, never stopping from following the process at all times and contributing to the whole process; but whether we are the Governor but Esenyurt Municipality and we are with all the facilities of the IMM, we have healed their wounds and we have come to this process ”.
“CHANNEL ISTANBUL IS AWAY FROM THE WORLD REALITY”
"But what I want to express is not this side," said Imamoglu, saying:
“These are the result of an incident. We do not want to experience this result. Here, let's state in particular: Of course, the world has a change. Climate change is really one of the chronic problems of the world. A mind that remains insensitive to this, not to manage this process, but to reveal other priorities should be ready to face any kind of disaster. In other words, if you are not dealing with such problems and dealing with Kanal Istanbul, which will be the biggest disaster in Istanbul for me, you are preparing Istanbul to experience the bigger of this disaster. In that respect, I will express it at every point. Let's put aside all the processes described as 'betrayal' until today; Making Kanal Istanbul to Istanbul is a thousand times more betrayal than all of these betrayals. These and such processes are far from the realities of the world, especially far from the economic position of today, and how insensitive to dealing with such processes by experiencing this pandemic and forgetting it in a process where the health and health concept is at the forefront, far from seeing the real need of people, nature. It is an indication of the effort to run the country with an attitude that is far from feeling. We look at this process with that eye. ”
"ESENYURT; ZONING FACILITY ”
Esenyurt Turkey's largest disaster reconstruction signature in the district at the beginning of the highlights İmamoğlu, continued as follows:
“This is a city made by eyes, despite the cries of all people, all scientists, architects, engineers. The issues here are the result of the trauma created by a corrupt development process that is allowed here by using the authority of the Metropolitan Municipality, sometimes by violating the powers of the Metropolitan Municipality and using other authorities. So think about it, you will add hundreds of thousands of people around such a channel in the last fifteen years. Annual population growth of this district has not fallen below 10 thousand in the last 15-70 years. You will do these, you will allow them; but you will be incapable of making this channel. This is a clear sign of not feeling a city, of being sacrificed for rent so blindly that it does not solve other needs while breaking the fiction of a city. That is why Esenyurt must always be questioned and questioned. In this sense, we are with you on every road map that our Mayor of Esenyurt will walk. I know he will serve in really difficult conditions. "
“İSKİ, AN EXPERIENCED INSTITUTION”
İmamoğlu pointed out that they focused on the neglected infrastructure problems of the city before the pandemic process and shared information about their work. Emphasizing that İSKİ plays a leading role in this regard, İmamoğlu said:
“İSKİ is from Ortaköy in areas not entered KadıköyHe made works that left traces in many of our districts from Kartal to Bakırköy. Of course, it has not been an effort to throw a stain on these traces that have left a mark. So, KadıköyDuring the work of our team, which started the collection of waste water flowing into the stream for years, the channels that made cheap news to go to the place in the mouth of that stinking stream for years and say, 'Either this place smells dirty, İSKİ has ruined this place,' they contributed. Why did they contribute? Because we know the mistakes already made. We do our intervention in this field as we are in many fields that we have changed and renewed in 6 months, in 1 year, and in 1 year. Hopefully, the lives of any of our people and neighbors will not be a threat in Haramidere. İSKİ is an experienced institution in this sense. Although there have been some names that have served this institution in the past, but only in the name of politics, they have denied their colleagues in the past, we have declared that İSKİ is a noble institution, that everybody who serves wisely every time has a place on our heads, and we will continue to do so. We will do good things with them. Our mayors are our travel companions, 39 district municipalities are our travel companions. No one should doubt that we will make it the highest level to manage this process with everyone who is ready to meet, compromise, talk, find a solution and make a solution, making this city a livable, green and fair city effort. ”
İmamoğlu, thanking those who contributed to the project and wishing success, said, “Even though they targeted March, they do not expect climate or season. In this sense, I wish them to be motivated to shorten the time as much as possible in order to encounter the least problems. I wish them to entertain us in a shorter period of time, finished the process here, and completed the process with a contemporary position instead of the sections that appear today. Good luck and good luck to all of us. ”
Following the speeches, the foundation of the project that will solve Esenyurt's flood problem was laid.
