From Baran to Tsitiridis: “Cornered and discourteous”
Deputy Burhan Baran said that Avdira (Bulustra) Mayor Tsitiridis, who plundered the historical Petinos (Horozlu) Turkish cemetery, was cornered.
Xanthi Turkish Minority Deputy Burhan Baran issued a statement regarding the events that took place in the city council, which convened at the request of the opposition, as a result of the destruction of the historic Petinos (Horozlu) cemetery by the municipality of Avdira on Monday, 28 March.
In his statement, Deputy Burhan Baran criticized that he was not given the floor in the Municipal Assembly and stated that this situation revealed the mayor's attitude and rudeness.
Deputy Burhan Baran’s statement is as follow:
“Last night, I participated and I watched carefully the Avdira (Bulustra) municipality municipal council, which held an extraordinary meeting regarding our cemeteries in Horozlu (Petino) that were destroyed by the Avdira (Bulustra) municipality, to the end.
At the meeting, I watched the Mayor with the eyes of both a politician and a psychiatrist.
Unfortunately, we are faced with a human psychology that is stuck in a corner, regretting what it has done, but trying to be right despite everything.
During the meeting, when my name was mentioned a few times, I wanted to take the floor both on these issues and in the city council in general.
Maybe only the members of the municipality can take the floor in the city council. However, if a deputy representing his city is in the council, and on top of that, you mention his name incorrectly in one or two parts of the council meeting, the fact that a deputy who wants to take the floor, even if out of courtesy, is not given the floor, clearly reveals the corneredness and rudeness of the Mayor.
I left the meeting, thinking that it would not make sense to be in that environment any longer after no promise was made.
