The forest fire in Marmaris district in Muğla continues. Ali Öztunç, in a statement today from the fire area, claimed that the flames approached President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s summer palace in Okluk and the fire response has been increased for this raison. Öztunç, in his statement to Değirmenyanı, said that the fire had reached the 41st hour and said:
“’The fire is under control,’ the ministers said. The side area under control was taken under control as there was nothing to burn either. Everything burned and ended, say the ministers, “It’s under control”. In his statement, the Minister said: “There is no uncontrollability, but there is also no controlled fire. “There is a situation between the two of them,” he says. Like a joke. Would the Minister of State, Minister of Forests make such a statement? Minister, “There are 12 planes, 45 helicopters”, he says. The great ministers make the show. The forests, the insects ignite, the ministers put on a show. You are humorous, ministers. Fire is not extinguished by hovering over a helicopter. Where were those planes yesterday, the night before.
“THE PLACE YOU SEE BEHIND US IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE”
Today, there are helicopters, planes. Do you know why? This is why the fire was based on the presidency. The place you see behind us is just below the presidential palace. We said “There is no night vision gunnery helicopter”, they said “There is”. Where is this helicopter? It was dark and the helicopter did not come. No, are they hiding that helicopter for their dowry? Was our President Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu supposed to come here for the night vision helicopter to come and put out the fire?
“NIGHT VISION HELICOPTERS WILL BE ACTIVATED BY TODAY”
Sir, ‘The bidding will start on July 2?’ So what are we going to do? Will we say to the fire ‘let’s wait for July 2’? If the band of five had a tender, they would have it ready and finished in two minutes. They were obliged to follow our explanations. Starting tonight, they will activate night vision helicopters.
“DO NOT PUT YOURSELF IN THE STATE’S PLACE MR. SOYLU”
“They are slandering the state,” said Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu. Mr. Soylu, you are the government, not the state. We criticize the government. We point out the incompetence of the government. Don’t put yourself in the state’s shoes, Mr. Soylu. You are not the state, you are the government. Moreover, Mr. Soylu says: “We inform the leader of the main opposition party”. This is not real information, they are lying. No minister or official gave any information to our esteemed President Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu. The great minister; We must inform the citizen correctly, we must not lie. He says: “We stop with three hours of sleep”. Apparently, when our president arrived, they lost sleep. Because we announce the facts to the public.
“YOU WILL STAY IN CLASS”
They slept all winter without taking precautions. We said, ‘Don’t do it, don’t do it’. We said: “Last year, 170,000 hectares were burned”. They didn’t care. Just before the start of the season, the fires started. They fell into despair. Today, the Directorate of Communications and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry released a video. They posted a video showing how successful they were in putting out wildfires. The comedy. The forests are burning, you are trying to put out the fire in the forests with the video you posted. You failed last year. This year, one goal a minute, you missed class again.
“THE HELICOPTERS AND PLANES HAVE BEEN PLACED INTO SERVICE IMMEDIATELY WHEN BASED AT THE PALACE”
Mr. Soylu says: “Collect the money for your municipalities”. The minister who said this is the minister who confiscated the money to help citizens during the pandemic period. We, 11 metropolitan municipalities, requested the repair of the plane from the Turkish Aeronautical Association on August 3 last year. We said, ‘Let’s get these planes repaired and use them in the event of a fire.’ But what happened, they refused. Right behind us, near Erdogan’s summer palace, the fire is raging. The nation’s forests have burned; No airplanes, no helicopters. But when they arrived at the palace, helicopters and planes were immediately put into operation.”
