Opposition Criticizes Government’s Wheat Price Increase Amid High Inflation

CHP Deputy Chairman Burhanettin Bulut has criticized the government’s recent decision to increase wheat prices, calling the 12% hike insufficient given the current inflation rates.

Who: CHP Deputy Chairman Burhanettin Bulut

What: Criticized the 12% increase in wheat prices

When: Recent statement

Where: Turkey

Why: Due to the high inflation rate reported by the Turkish Statistical Institute (TÜİK), which is around 80%

How: By issuing a public statement questioning the adequacy of the government’s price adjustments

Bulut stated, “Even TÜİK announces an 80% inflation rate, but the government only increases the wheat price by 12%, setting it at 9 lira and 25 kuruş. We cannot accept a wheat price below 15 liras when the cost is 11 liras.”
