I'm sure it could save budget up to Rp 1 trillion

During the sweeping, some programs succeeded to be streamlined, both deducted or eliminated. Basuki is sure by doing it could save budget up to Rp 1 trillion.

"I'm sure it could save budget up to Rp 1 trillion," he expressed when doing KUA-PPAS sweeping, at City Hall, Saturday night (11/21).

He mentioned that budget in Tourism and Culture Department succeeded to be streamlined up to Rp 400 billion. Then in Cleanliness Department up to Rp 100 billion. "Furthermore in Education and Water Management Departments. There are many nonsense budgets," he told.

In Tourism and Culture Deparment, Basuki eliminated some festival events. Considering each of the event is budgeted up to Rp 10 billion.

Besides that, in each department Basuki allocates budget for purchasing office stationaries between Rp 50-70 million. He claimed purposely doing that.
