“Peo­ple can en­joy a gon­dola ride in Tunceli and ex­pe­ri­ence the beau­ties of our city.

“Tunceli is now a city of peace. Our ci­ti­zens, trades­men, and lo­cals are very satis¿ed. We are try­ing to reàect the af­fec­tion and warmth of our govern­ment to lo­cals.”

He said that they im­ple­mented Mun­zur Creek, Pülümür Creek, the town square, un­der­ground mar­ket, the an­i­mal shel­ter, art street and the im­prove­ment of lo­cal em­ploy­ment within a short amount of time.

The gover­nor said, “We hope our ci­ti­zens en­joy these new im­prove­ments.”
