"I also hope all people, FKDM and others to monitor the ongoing Asian Games. This is because 45 countries will come to Jakarta," he told.
Meanwhile, Pasar Rebo Sub-district Head, Panangaran Ritonga stated, thus far, residents are ready to welcome the event by installing umbul-umbul (decorative flags), banners, and painting the wall.
"They are committed to succeed and enliven the event. Even, during torch parade, we held cultural arts performances," he said.
To welcome torch parade, Cijantung Urban Village will hold Bedug Festival, followed by tanjidor from Kalisari Urban Village, as well as mawaris and hadroh from Pekayon Urban Village.
