Gov’t finds Cash to Aid Myanmar, But Not Our Farmers
The ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) government finds money to send aid to Myanmar, but not Turkish farmers, National Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahçeli said June 2, during his party’s rally in the eastern province of Elazığ.
“The ones who make it rain on Somalia are penny-pinching toward the pensioners. The ones who spend a fortune on Myanmar are brutal towards farmers. The ones who spend billions of U.S. dollars on Syrian refugees are insensitive towards our oppressed” Bahçeli said, referring to the AKP government.
Bahçeli used President Tayyip Erdoğan, who said a couple of days ago they had financed the collective wedding ceremonies of 2,000 couples in Palestine, as an example.
