Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, Chairman of the Republican People’s Party, made a post on his Twitter account yesterday and called out to the 5 gang. Kılıçdaroğlu stated that news was sent to him from the 5 gang, “The capitalist, the holding, the market, whoever tries to find me with the gang of 5, will regret it; let it be known like this. Now if you have the courage, come and convince me. But stop sending news” used the phrases.
According to the news in Birgün, It has been reported that the group, which became the symbol of the “five gang” analogy of transferring funds to certain circles during the AKP period, continued to insist on meeting with CHP Chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu through some names from outside the party.
“IF YOU LISTEN TO US…”
Especially It has been learned that Mehmet Cengiz, through some business people, had sent Kılıçdaroğlu messages “If only he would listen to us…” although his previous requests were not met. Upon the intensification of these insistences in recent days, Kılıçdaroğlu shared on his social media account yesterday.
CHP General Secretary Selin Sayek Böke said, “We will nationalize the projects that cause public harm. The uneasiness that started in the capital circles later turned into efforts for rapprochement with the statement that it is not our concern by which companies these projects are carried out, who owns them, and what their name is.
Capital circles, trying to overcome the problems that may be experienced in a possible CHP rule, with their “familiar methods”, started to search for ways of dialogue with the CHP Headquarters. Despite the statements of Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, who had deciphered these attempts before, “I will meet with all of you, not just one of them”, it was learned that the demands especially from the Cengiz Group did not stop. Mehmet Cengiz’s “If you listen to us…” message was not only left unanswered by the CHP General Presidency. Kılıçdaroğlu exposed this to the public by tweeting.
In Cengiz’s interview with Ertuğrul Özkök and Cengiz Semercoğlu, “We went to Deniz Baykal, we said, come, take a tour. He set up a delegation and came, we explained. After that, we became friends and our friendship continues.” The relationship method he described in his statement did not work this time.
THE INTEREST OF BUREAUCRATS IS INTENSE
As the election approaches, it has been reported that not only the capital circles, but also bureaucrats’ interest in opposition parties has increased. It was learned that there was a flow of files from the lower level as well as the top and middle level bureaucrats who transferred the irregularities committed during the AKP period to the opposition parties for fear of being judged. It was stated that many bureaucrats communicated what they knew by contacting CHP executives and deputies.
CONTRACTORS OF EVERY PERIOD
Although the contractors “Cengiz, Limak, Kalyon, Kolin and Makyol”, who took on the construction of the projects made with the public-private cooperation model and took the first place in the world’s list of contractors, are called “gangs of five”, it is known that the number of this group is over 10. Although others grew up during the AKP period, the Cengiz Group also added wealth to its wealth with infrastructure and tourism investments before the AKP.
The name Mehmet Cengiz, who was at the center of the reactions due to his swearing at the public, was heard in the 1980s. Cengiz, who made honey tourism investments through the path opened by ANAP, made a name for himself as the “cash” of this party. It made huge tourism investments on the allocated public lands, and this group built Turkey’s first 7-star hotel. Cengiz, who came to power with the fall of ANAP from power, made his main savings with the incentives and giant PPP tenders he received during the AKP period.
