Pro-government trolls were quite active in blaming the mayor, İmamoğlu- I have to admit I do not like him much but still better than his accusers- but the fault is mostly due the government nepotism and failures. I should remind you that government-operated intercity highways between İstanbul-Ankara are not accessible at the moment. Much touted İstanbul Airport cannot operate due to the snowstorm and the roof of a cargo building there collapsed… As we have destroyed their life-worlds, not wild boars can be seen in some neighbourhoods. My take is from Maslak, last night:

Turkey attempted to turn Istanbul into an air hub.
BUT, sacrificed it to nepotism.
New airport was located at a super cold, windy spot. Destroyed all habitat, was exorbitantly expensive -$12 billion!
Single snow storm caused: Roofs to cave, 1000s stranded and flights✈️ diverted. https://t.co/2R3Fv6D4hc
