Having previously accused the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) of carrying out an operation to create dissent within the Republican People’s Party (CHP), CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu recently likened MİT to the Gestapo, Nazi Germany’s secret police, for its alleged plot against the CHP.
Speaking in the province of Erzurum on Saturday at his party’s regional meeting, Kılıçdaroğlu was asked about his previous statements accusing MİT of trying to divide the CHP on the basis of ideological differences. The party leader responded by saying MİT is serving the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) instead of the state.
“Those political parties come to power to govern the state, not to undermine it. But the AK Party has now turned into a state party. The state’s institutions, whose main tasks are to serve the state, do not follow the guidelines of the law. They serve the AK Party,” Kılıçdaroğlu said. Report Today Zaman
