The iftar event of Fatih Municipality for this evening took place in Fındıkzade Çukurbostan City Park, the largest recreational garden and living space in Fatih.

8,000 residents of Fatih broke fast at the tables placed on an area of 25,000 square meters, surrounded by the sounds of birds and water. Hosted by Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan, the event was attended by Ak Party (The Justice and Development Party) General Vice President and Istanbul Deputy Dr. Fatma Betül Sayan Kaya, deputy mayors, assembly members and citizens.

Coming to the area before iftar, Mayor Turan visited the tables one by one, talked to the attendants and listened to the requests of citizens. People broke fast after the azan was called and they prayed.

“Çukurbostan will be a much safer place”

Mentioning that they are working to make Fındıkzade Çukurbostan City Park safer, Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan said, “Fatih is our ancient district. If we were asked what the most exceptional place on earth for our nation, we’d say Istanbul. This actually describes the where we are, the Fatih district. I consider it a great honor to be the Municipality Mayor of Fatih and to have the chance to serve our nation. The use of this area was very constricted. Çukurbostan became an area that is used by our people with the efforts of our former municipality mayor. I visit these parks whenever I got the chance and I talk to our neighbors. Çukurbostan will be a much safer place. I’m underlining this. This will be a 100% safe place. Children and ladies will have no safety concerns when they come here. The residents are aware of the changes here. This will increase and they’ll realize that when they walk through the gates of Çukurbostan, they enter a safe environment without any reservations. We are preparing the infrastructure for whatever is necessary in this regard”. Mayor Turan gave the good news to the people in the area too: “Here we have a building of Educational Volunteers Foundation of Turkey (TEGV), which has been vacant for years. The foundation will waive their right to use this building even though they have the right to use it for 25 years and will hand it over to our Municipality after bayram”.

Greeting the citizens after the iftar and highlighting the elections of June 23, former Minister of Family and Social Policies, Ak Party General Deputy Chairman and Istanbul Deputy Dr. Fatma Betül Sayan Kaya mentioned that Binali Yıldırım is a great opportunity for Istanbul. Kaya said, “I’m asking for support from residents of Fatih and our neighbors for Binali Yıldırım. Everything will be better in Istanbul with Binali Yıldırım”.

Following the speeches, former Minister Kaya and Mayor Turan offered 3,000 packs of ice cream to citizens who were breaking fast.
