Jakarta Legislative Council (DPRD), decided to divert an activity budget in the amount of Rp 256.5 billion to assist in handling COVID-19.
" This is our support and care for residents affected by COVID-19 outbreak in Jakarta"
It was decided in a joint executive meeting (Rapimgab) on Monday (4/27) yesterday. The budget was taken from the activities of the board completeness tool (AKD), the socialization of bylaw and recess.
"This is our support and care for residents affected by COVID-19 outbreak in Jakarta," disclosed DPRD Chairman, Prasetio Edi Marsudi.
Similar decisions were also followed by faction and commissions leaders who had agreed on efficiency for budget reallocation for recess activities, bapemperda discussion, banggar discussion, pansus discussion, bamus discussion, honorary board discussion, commission work visit, sister city work visit and leader activities.
Even they stopped a number of activities in a bid to optimize budget allocation to be more productive and beneficial for the needy.
"We have a role here. That's why I request the Commissions A, B, C, D, E's existing budget allocation to be diverted for handling coronavirus," he asserted.
Hopefully this assistance could be carried out on target. "Surely the recipient's data must be mapped again," he stated.
