Chain market tension continues! Çankırı Municipality with MHP closed 2 more markets

After the 5 chain markets in Ağrı, which were closed by the order of AKP Mayor Prosecutor Sayan today, Çankırı Municipality from MHP also locked the doors of 2 markets.

Çankırı Municipality police teams conducted inspections in chain markets in the city center “after complaints from citizens”. In the audit, the weight of the products, their expiry dates, the prices of the aisles and cases were examined. In addition, it was checked whether the hygiene rules were followed.

Within the scope of the audit, 2 market branches were closed due to lack of documents.


Fines were imposed on 3 branches, which were found to be selling products beyond the expiration date and with different label and safe prices.

In the statement made by the municipality, it was stated that the police teams will continue the inspections with determination in line with the requests, suggestions and complaints of the citizens, primarily public health.


While citizens in Turkey were struggling with poverty, statements were made from political actors holding markets responsible. MHP Chairman Devlet Bahçeli held the chain stores responsible for the exorbitant prices of foodstuffs in his statement in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey and suggested that these markets be investigated for their ties with FETO. President of the AKP, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, also stated that there will be a regulation regarding the prices of the products in the chain markets.

While the discussions about chain markets continued, it was reported that 10 markets were sealed as a result of the inspection carried out by the municipal police of the AKP Ağrı Municipality. BİM was at the forefront of these markets.

On the other hand, in Burdur, the Tefenni Municipality of the MHP has placed a board in front of a BİM branch in the district, with Bahçeli’s words about chain markets. It was seen that the front of the BİM branches was dug in the Çavdır district of the same city.
