Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu criticized the government of initializing zero tax on fur but having high taxes on major consumption products of the citizens.
“There is a burden of the tax,” he said speaking at a rally in Burdur, noting even water has taxes.
“But the government has ended the tax on fur, high society of the palace,” the CHP leader said ironizing his criticisms on high consumptions of the presidency.
“As soon as you press the button for electricity, you pay four types of tax. Where is this money going?” he asked.
Turkey is “on fire” and people are at uneasiness, Kılıçdaroğlu said emphasizing the economic difficulties of the country.
Turkey has a “serious economic crisis, but the palace does not, he said and added. “Those who travel with 3,000 security personnel will have no idea about the problem of the citizens”.
The CHP leader reiterated his expectation from the mayors to act equally and serve in an equal manner for both the people voted for their party and for those voted for the rivals.
He also called on the electorates of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) to vote on their conscience.” This is a local election. If a mayor is serving, one should give support”.
“Turkey is in the midst of an economic crisis. There is a crisis everywhere. But there is no crisis in the palace. (He) has a summer palace, (he) has a winter palace. You have a flying palace. Don’t they suffice you?,” he asked indirectly speaking to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
People of Turkey should claim their democracies, he said.
