CHP leader accuses government of ‘feeding’ injustice

Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) head Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has accused the government of “feeding” injustice in the country.

“We won’t have jobs, food or peace without justice,” Kılıçdaroğlu said in a thread of Twitter posts on Oct. 18.

“We see injustice fed by the government beneath everything that goes wrong in the country,” he said.

“You would pressure farmers, pensioners or ordinary citizens if they had debts, but you omit millions of liras of debts of mobile companies in a single move,” he said.

“The heroes of the past took from the rich and gave it to the poor. Today’s tribe chiefs are serving the labor of the poor to the rich,” he said.

In a speech a day before, Kılıçdaroğlu accused President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of turning Turkey into “a tribal state” through foreign policy missteps and his influence on all executive and legislative process in the country.

“He keeps on saying that the Turkish Republic is not a tribal state... But you are trying to turn the Turkish Republic into a tribal state. We are struggling to prevent this from happening,” Kılıçdaroğlu said on Oct. 17, addressing his party group at parliament.
