İçki satana ekmek yok Bursa Büyükşehir Belediyesi'nin iştiraklerinden olan Bursa Ekmek Sanayii (BESAŞ), alkollü içki satışı yapılan yerlere artık ekmek verilmeyeceğini duyurdu. Alkol satan bayilere 31 Mart 2018'e kadar süre tanındı. Ekmek satmak isteyen, içki satmayacak. BESAŞ duyurusunda, ‘'Tüm bayiliklerimizde ekmek satışı yapılan noktada, alkol satışı yapılmaması hususunun uygulanmasına karar verilmiştir’' denildi. CHP Bursa Milletvekili Ceyhun İrgil karara tepki gösterdi, ‘Ekmekle oynamak tam olarak budur’ dedi.
Turkish city tells shops to choose between selling bread and alcohol
Turkey’s fourth largest city is making retail establishments choose between selling alcohol or subsidised bread, secularist newspaper Sözcü said.
Municipal bakery BESAŞ, a municipal enterprise in the city of Bursa, is the third-largest bakery in Turkey. It has given shops that sell alcohol until the end of March to decide whether beer or bread is a higher priority.
“The decision has been taken on the issue that all of our vendors should not sell alcohol,” the bakery said in a statement.
A Bursa parliamentarian for the opposition Republican People’s Party accused the governing Justice and Development Party, which controls the city council, of weaponising the people’s bread.
“BESAŞ is a firm that produces and sells bread and its duty is to give the people cheap bread,” Ceyhun İrgil said.
“When BESAŞ’s role is to bring cheap bread to the people, it cannot go and tell vendors what it can and cannot sell. This is crossing the line.”
