Nicosia. More than 24 thousand people have died since the two severe earthquakes that occurred in Turkey last Monday. While there have been around 4500 deaths in neighboring Syria. Along with this, thousands of buildings scattered like cards in the earthquake turned into a pile of debris. In the harsh winter, there is a huge shortage of essential means like food, drink and keeping oneself warm in front of the people who have survived the devastation of the earthquake. In such a situation, the anger of the people is increasing against the government and its officials. A big problem has arisen in front of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

For the first time in the last 20 years, the political future of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan seems to be in danger. At present, he now needs to prove that he is such a leader, who can provide relief to the earthquake victims by uniting all the resources of the government in this hour of crisis. At the same time, there will be a big challenge in front of them to bring back the lives of the people who were financially completely devastated along with building the houses that were destroyed in the earthquake.

Then there would not have been so many deaths? Turkish government lapse after earthquake, President Erdogan accepted ‘mistake’

However, United Nations (UN) Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths fears that the number of deaths in Turkey may double the current number. This can further increase the anger of the people. The reason for this is that after the death of about 17,000 people in the 1999 earthquake, the Turkish government enacted a law to make buildings safe from earthquakes, but it was not implemented properly. The government imposed a tax to improve existing buildings and collected about $ 17 billion, but it was not spent on buildings. Until a few days ago, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was thinking of holding elections in May-June. But now it will definitely be postponed for a few months.
