The children who grow up here will be able to find a job immediately after they finish school. Because they will produce. That's why this university is a university that needs to be watched carefully, I have been watching it carefully since it was founded. The Higher Education Council should also watch it carefully, the local administration should also watch it carefully. If we open such universities, if we bring universities to this position, Turkey will produce more, Turkey will create more jobs, Turkey will export more, Turkey will contribute to the happy lives of our people by growing national income and national product without being dependent on anyone. Therefore, it is very important that this park is named after Hasan. May his soul rest in peace, I wish condolences to his family."

Mr. Hasan was a resident of our district and we know, hear and learn that he was a true lover of Ankara. Therefore, it is a source of pride for us to keep his name alive in such a park in our district. I wish him mercy from Allah and condolences and patience to his relatives."

"Hasan Yalçıntaş's name is entrusted to us"

Mayor of Ankara Metropolitan Municipality Mansur Yavaş started his speech by saying, "First of all, the name of our brother Hasan suits this place very well.

"We also gave his name to the Composite Facilities of our Municipality and hopefully we will give his name to one or two more places that will keep his memory alive. Because his name is now entrusted to us," Yavaş said, "He has made a lot of efforts, we really know him from many, many years ago, but during the time we worked together, especially the work he gave to the Çubuk Dam cannot be expressed with anything."
