HDP asks another parliamentary inquiry
Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) Group Deputy Chair İdris Baluken asked for a Parliamentary Inquiry in order for the establishment of the AKP government's problematic policies regarding the ongoing democratic resolution process and the prevention of the practices liable to interrupt the process.
In a motion tabled to the speaker's office of the parliament, HDP Deputy Chair Baluken pointed out that the resolution of the Kurdish question has been hindered by the monist and assimilative mindset throughout the history of the Turkish Republic.
Reminding that negotiations between Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan and a delegation of the Turkish state, started late 2012 as a result of the struggle given for the resolution of the Kurdish question, Baluken noted that PKK guerrillas started withdrawal from Turkish borders as a consequence of this process, but suspended it due to the government's failure to take steps for the advancement of the process.
Referring to the report released by the Commission to Monitor the Withdrawal, which was formed by the Human Rights Association, Baluken said that;
"According to this report, decision has been made to build 341 military bases, 11 security dams have been built at the border, a 820-square km security road has been constructed along the border line and two thousand village guards have been called for recruitment in the last one year."
