AK Party: Investigation started for construction in Akköprü An investigation has been initiated for the construction of the fountain and wall in Akköprü location in Karaman, which is on the agenda of social media and where many users reacted. AK Party Karaman Provincial Chairman Abidin Çağlayan stated that they will follow the issue.
President Çağlayan pointed out that the newly erected fountain and the wall that started to be built next to it ruined the natural beauty and that there was already a fountain in the region; "Akköprü is our natural beauty that contains ancient memories on behalf of our city and our countrymen. We started a study after our citizens reached us about the fountain and wall construction in the region and said that the fountain-wall structures slaughter this natural beauty. "We have determined that the reactions of our fellow countrymen who reached us through social media and other channels were justified with the on-site inspection of our friends."
President Çağlayan stated that the structures are incompatible with the willingness of philanthropy in terms of location;
"" These charity fountains, popularly known as "Sebil", are generally built in areas where water is needed and where there is no water nearby. In addition, the issue of building walls on the banks of the stream, if necessary, is carried out with a project and conscious work that we call "Improvement". It is out of the question for everyone to build something in public spaces, especially under the name of "Hayrat". Of course, we respect the man of the fountain in question because he thinks a charity for his relatives who have passed away.
The reason for the construction of charity is mercy to the deceased together with all our dead, and we pray that their place is paradise, but here we see that charity is misled about the choice of place and the form of construction. The one who proposes a wall to protect the fountain from the creek, whose soundness is suspicious, suggests that the stream bed should be changed to protect that wall tomorrow. Although the fountain right next to it was exposed to the same natural events, its master did not suggest a wall in front of it. Considering all this, it becomes possible that the intention 'to do' may have been abused from the outset.
Because there is a fountain for drinking water and a stream to use for different purposes in the region. Suggesting to build a fountain at this exact point makes one think about what purpose the charity was made for. The masters, who are generally pioneers of this kind of charity work, warn the philanthropists about the necessity of the work in the region and how much the structure will serve its purpose.
Since these masters are competent in their work, they prevent a situation that is incompatible with the sublime volunteerism of philanthropy. On the contrary, we conveyed the complaints of our compatriots about the fountain and wall construction in Akköprü location, which we observed, to our relevant institutions. "We will follow the issue until the end with our belief that the necessary will be done."
