Öztrak: They stamped the Turkish currency

CHP Spokesperson Faik Öztrak attended the fish auction in Tekirdağ Metropolitan Municipality Fish Market.

Öztrak evaluated the increase in the dollar/TL rate above 10 lira to ANKA News Agency.

Öztrak said:

We say ‘the economy is not managed’. The country is not governed, the country is being thrown away. Currently, the Turkish currency continues to be stamped rapidly. Last night, the Turkish lira saw double-digit numbers for the first time. The value of the dollar saw double figures in terms of Turkish lira. Today, we are in a state of fish, the biggest complaint of the fisherman in the morning is the rapidly increasing diesel prices. This increase in the dollar quickly reflects on everything, everything from needle to thread is on the rise. There is only one thing that does not see a raise, and that is the minimum wage, and that is the nation’s income and the nation’s salary. Bread has just been increased. Whatever is in the bazaar, the label does not last a day, it changes hourly. The most important issue in the country today is cost. The reason for the expensiveness is bad management.

Nobody should come out and say ‘this is the world’ or ‘that is the world’. Turkey is facing a major incompetence today. They stamped the Turkish lira and Turkish currency. Right now people really don’t know what to do about being expensive. A lady was here a moment ago and said, ‘I left the market and came to buy fish, but fish is very expensive’. You are talking to the fisherman, the biggest problem of the fisherman is the price of diesel. The fisherman is the person who most closely feels the increase in diesel prices. As you know, there was no SCT on the diesel used by the fisherman. Since there is no SCT, the hikes are reflected to the fisherman exactly. There is no mobile for the fisherman. Fishing costs are increasing.

The farmer is very distressed. When the farmer is in distress and the fisherman is in distress, the citizen is also in distress. There is only one reason for all this. This monstrous one-man regime has been emptying our pockets ever since the Erdogan me regime started in 2018.”

“We buy the diesel, which we bought for 3.5 liras without SCT, at 8.15 this year”

Eyüp Yiğiter, the fisherman that Öztrak listened to, said:

“The diesel we bought last year for 3.5 liras without SCT, this year the SCT is over, we are buying it at 8.15. We bought it from the place determined by the state, we bought it from the stations, no difference. Now we have started to buy from stations. The styrofoam box we bought for 5 liras last year is 10 liras and 25 cents this year. These increase the cost. When costs increase, the load goes directly to the consumer.

The biggest inputs of the fisherman are diesel, gas, bags and workers. These cost so much that people can’t eat or eat more expensive fish instead of cheaper fish. If it continues like this, they will eat anchovies for 30-40 liras. Those who keep anchovy do not earn money, those who sell do not earn money, those who eat eat it dearly. There is a shortcoming here, we cannot solve it. The producer does not earn from the fish that comes with such input, the seller does not win, the one who eats eats expensive. We are victims.

We had a mucilage problem. No help payment, no help with mucilage. We want the factories and deep discharges that pollute the seas to be closed. The Ministry wants the Marmara Sea to be closed. What’s wrong with the fishermen? What did the fishermen do to pollute the Sea of ​​Marmara?”
