"We do not agree if the central government to review the project, in connection with land procurement, Banten Provincial Government should ask for clarity, this development is the central commitment first," said Vice Chairman of Banten DPRD Ali Zamroni in Serang on Monday (16/1/2017 ).

"I object and disagree, our new budget is now only Rp10 trillion, just double digits, from one digit which previously only Rp9 trillion. Suddenly now there is a central desire for the acquisition of Serang-Panimbang Toll land, which all budgeted by the center, arrived Must be to the area, "said Ali Zamroni accompanied by other members of Parliament Banten from Gerindra faction, Andra Soni.
He questioned the seriousness and central plan for the implementation of national strategic projects in Banten and through Serang City, Pandeglang and Lebak Regencies.
"I agree on a strategic project, but if suddenly there is a change from the budget side I think it is impossible.On our Accelerated Infrastructure Regulation only 7 provincial road segments, to complete one course, KH Hasyim Ashari street, Tangerang City only needs fund Rp600 billion, moreover if sharing with districts / cities, we know the districts that will pass the toll road areas are left behind, to finance their own budget they are inconvenience, "said Ali.
Therefore, Ali will encourage tripartite action between the central, provincial and district / city governments to immediately complete and ensure the sustainability of the national strategic project.

He hopes the district / city government in the process of accelerating the development of the Serang-Panimbang toll road also play an active role.
"Suppose the composition of the three districts / cities will be 20 percent each and the remaining 40 percent from Banten province, and I will encourage them to be realized," said Thoni from PKB Fraction.
