AK PARTY ATTORNEY HAS KEY

“WE ACCEPT THEM AS THE COLORS OF LIFE, NOT AS DISABLED”
AK Party Istanbul Deputy Hasan Turan stated that athletes with disabilities have proved that they will achieve great success when given the opportunity.
Expressing his pleasure to attend the event, Turan said;
“We regard them as the colors of life, not the disabled. We believe that the biggest obstacle is ignorance, lovelessness and laziness. There is not an obstacle, but success here. Our youth, with the help of their families and the support of our state, waved our crescent-star flag around the world on the 106th anniversary of our Çanakkale Victory. Who is disabled? When given the opportunity, we can see what the children of our nation can do. When these successes are followed by a family in Şırnak, Edirne and Sinop, they open the closed doors in front of their child and direct him to sports. Let us give these brothers and sisters the opportunity. Many achievements, “he said.
