AKP Eskişehir Provincial President Zihni Çalışkan reacted to the fact that the Alpu Municipality of CHP, along with the residents of the district, who wanted to stop the Rail Systems Test Center Project (URAYSİM), which is planned to be built on the fertile agricultural lands of Eskişehir's Alpu Plain, filed a lawsuit to stop the execution of the project. Stating that they will not allow obstructions, Çalışkan said, "We are not against the project, but against the place of the project," said CHP Alpu Mayor Gürbüz Güller.
According to the news of Kemal Atlan from SÖZCU“For the URAYSİM test area, which is planned to be implemented in the Alpu district of Eskişehir within the body of Anadolu University, rails will be laid on an area of 35 thousand decares including Bozan, Çardakbaşı and Yeşildon villages.
An expropriation decision has also been made for thousands of acres of agricultural land in the test area where approximately 100 kilometers of rail will be laid. CHP Alpu Municipality brought the issue to the judiciary.
REQUESTS OF CITIZENS MUST BE CONSIDERED
Alpu Mayor Gürbüz Güller reacted to the statements of AKP Eskişehir Provincial President Zihni Çalışkan, who stated that the URAYSİM project, which is planned to be implemented in the Alpu district of Eskişehir, which is described as the agricultural warehouse, means work and food for the city and that they will not allow any obstacles to be created in this regard.
Güller said that within the scope of the URAYSİM project carried out by Anadolu University, the immovables that coincided with the expropriation area were subject to expropriation with the decision of the Anadolu University Board of Directors.
Güller stated that they applied to the judiciary for a stay of execution until the decision is made with the annulment of the decision.
“Expropriation, on the other hand, is an intervention to the property rights of individuals for the purpose of public benefit, and it means the limitation of property rights in general terms. Therefore
The concept of public interest, which is the basis of the expropriation process, should be examined in detail and an evaluation should be made on the concrete situation rather than general statements. While taking the decision, it is thought that it is necessary to act by taking into account the demands of the citizens living in the area that will be affected by the decision.
WE ARE IN NO WAY AGAINST THIS NATIONAL PROJECT
Expressing that they appreciate such projects, Güller said:
“We think that it is more appropriate to carry out the project on unproductive and barren alternative lands instead of doing it on fertile lands and plains. According to the healing information we have obtained, even the Ministry of Agriculture has not been consulted in detail for the project area. We know that there are alternative lands around us.
For the project site; It would be appropriate in all respects to consider agricultural issues as well as other issues (economic, technical, social, political). As our municipality, our objection is in this direction and it is definitely not to oppose.”
