CHP Agriculture and Livestock Commission Member, Tekirdağ Deputy Dr. İlhami Özcan Aygun said that the government did not learn a lesson. Stating that construction is planned on agricultural lands, wetlands and alluvial soils in the new settlement areas to be established by TOKİ after the earthquake, Aygun said, “The end of urbanization that is not based on science is a disaster. Adıyaman and Şanlıurfa, which were severely damaged in the earthquake, are experiencing the second disaster due to the construction in the stream beds. The government even sets up the tents and containers of our earthquake victims on the riverside and in the pits. What kind of incompetence is this?” asked.
CONSTRUCTION AROUND PEANUT TREES!
Aygun stated that they visited the Kırçalı District of Gaziantep’s Islahiye District after the Serinyol District of Hatay and said, “However, we have seen that mistakes continue in the reconstruction works of the city. TOKI; pistachio, olive trees and black grapes and will build on lands where water is plentiful. Likewise, in Gaziantep Nurdağ, Adıyaman, Kahramanmaraş and Malatya, where we went last week, on agricultural lands and pastures; They aim to build in alluvial and abundant wetlands. We were very upset when we found out about them,” he said.
WILL THIS GOVERNMENT LEARN LESSONS?
Stating that rocky and solid lands should be taken as a basis in zoning works, Aygun said, “Adıyaman and Şanlıurfa are also experiencing a major flood disaster after the earthquake. Buildings built on fault lines and constructed without strength collapsed. In the flood disaster, all the buildings on the stream beds were flooded. Will this government not learn a lesson? asked.
THIS POWER NEEDS TO GO ASAP
Aygun criticized the government’s setting up of tents and containers near pits and rivers in Şanlıurfa, saying, “At the end of the day, a family lost their lives in a flood. We lost dozens of our citizens. Another wound was inflicted on our people, who were injured by the earthquake, at the hands of the government. “We are faced with a government that is incapable of taking action,” he said.
Pointing out that the intersection opened three months ago in Şanlıurfa was flooded, Aygun said, “The Eyyübiye State Hospital, which was built in 2016, was also flooded. Concrete is not made everywhere. If you build on stream beds, nature will pay the price when the time comes. You will take science as the basis”.
Reminding that hospitals have turned into rubble due to the government’s construction on the edges of fault lines, Aygun said, “There can be no construction on stream beds either. We saw this in Şanlıurfa. The hospital flooded. What a pity! This government needs to go as soon as possible. He who ignores science will lead the country to disaster.
