“On the one side, you say that the economy is booming; on the other side, you launch a campaign of ‘bread on a hanger.' Either you or the AKP is lying," Akşener said.

İYİ Party Chair Akşener has slammed Bahçeli, the Chair of the MHP, which is in alliance with the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), over the "askıda ekmek" (bread on a hanger) campaign initiated by the party.
Addressing both the MHP and AKP within this context, Akşener has asked, "What kind of remorselessness is that?" and said:
"We already have the practice of 'bread on a hanger' in our tradition, but it is not something that you can do by setting up a hanger in public and putting your party logo on the hanger. It is something that is supposed to be done decently in a bakery. They have been marginalized from our nation to such an extent that they cannot even offer 'bread on a hanger' properly.
Akşener has also criticized President and AKP Chair Recep Tayyip Erdoğan for frequently announcing the discovery of new natural gas reserves:
"On the one side, you are showing off, saying, 'We have discovered gas'; on the other side, you raise the prices. Stop playing with the nation's hopes. The nation is expecting you to find a solution for the natural gas bill. But you pose on top of a ship. While you dream of a Turkey which gets rich with natural gas, what you have in reality is 'bread on a hanger' campaign," Akşener added.
