From tradesmen, the entire service sector is making great sacrifices. Our people are making a great sacrifice, and we are grateful in this sense. A consultation is held under the leadership of our Scientific Committee, the Ministry of Health and our President, and we act in line with the decisions taken. We lost our lives, I am one of the most affected by this work, we lost our most valuable people. As long as we get rid of this calamity immediately. Our people were not left alone in this process.

You cannot sell electronic items, hardware, clothes, garden equipment.’ It is necessary to understand that, it is necessary to distribute this sacrifice in the society. We take a step by listening to the demands of our nation. We have to balance, we called the marketers for this, we explained the situation, and they said ‘You are right.’ However, the grocery stores were open, we gave time by saying, ‘You can get your needs until Thursday evening.’ We have to achieve this by establishing solidarity and empathy with each other. We take shelter in the conscience of our nation, we are all going through a very difficult process.

Regulation on alcohol prohibition

“Alcohol issue is not a spontaneous business. We have always followed Europe for about two months. They were a little earlier than us. We followed them a little bit, how do they close, how do they take a step, what measures do they take … All of these have been exemplary and instructive for us. It must be said clearly. We reinforced them with our own experiences. We made our consultations and set a road map for ourselves. “
