Republican People's Party Şanlıurfa Deputy Aziz Aydınlık asked his questions about the Şanlıurfa High Speed Train project to the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Adil Karaismailoğlu with a written question.
Aydınlık made a statement regarding the written question he submitted to the Presidency of the Turkish Grand National Assembly and said, “Sadly, Şanlıurfa continues to be neglected and pushed into the background; High Speed Train Project is one of them. That's why we asked the questions that the people of Urfa and the public were curious about, with our parliamentary question to the Minister of Transport.”
OPENED OLD BOOKS; LET ANTEPE COME FIRST AND THEN WE LOOK AFTER
Continuing his statements on the subject, Aydınlık from CHP said, “The archive does not forget; The words of the power holders of Şanlıurfa are still in the middle, the words of Minister Karaismailoğlu are still in the middle, however, the words of the AKP Şanlıurfa Provincial President are still in the middle. Look what they said;
AKP Şanlıurfa Deputy Mehmet Ali Cevheri: We visited DDY General Manager Ali İhsan Uygur and got information about Gaziantep-Şanlıurfa-Mardin High Speed Train Project. We have been informed that the works on our project are continuing, that it has been realized at the level of 50%, and that the project will be completed in 2020. The date is 19 November 2019.
Minister Adil Karaismailoğlu: Let's go to Antep first. I told the people of Urfa last week, we say that one should come to Antep first and then we will see. The date is April 9, 2021.
AKP Şanlıurfa Provincial President Abdurrahman Kırıkçı: Hopefully, it will be completed by the end of 2025, at the beginning of 2026, and therefore, after 2026, our fellow countrymen; People from Şanlıurfa will go to İstanbul from Şanlıurfa by High Speed Train. The date is August 19, 2022.
Now I ask the rulers: Which one of you should the people of Urfa believe? He criticized the government in his own words.
URFANS DO NOT Worry
Criticizing the government with the words of the representatives of the ruling party, Vekil Aydınlık said, “The people of Urfa no longer believe in the promises of the AKP. As a result of 20 years of power, it is obvious where both Urfa and Turkey are and whether the promises are kept.
Let the people of Urfa not worry, by Allah's leave, we will be transparent when we come to power with the support of our nation; what we will do, when we will do it will be clear, our words and actions will match each other and it will be our privilege to bring Şanlıurfa to the High Speed Train” and concluded his words.
