Earlier this week, President Recep Erdogan announced that the Turkish government will distribute potatoes and onions to poorer families in the nation, to both support agricultural producers and the growing number of poorer families.
“We have decided to buy the potatoes and onions that remain in storage and distribute it to people in need,” said Erdogan. The plan is to distribute over 1,200,000 tons potatoes and 300,000 tons of onions. The opposition claims that the move by the Turkish president is a result of the deepening financial crisis facing Turkey.
