"We reserve Rp 201 trillion in 2018. This is a political tool," he said in Jakarta, Monday (25/09/2017).
In order for such assistance to be in accordance with the mandate, it is necessary to be supervised. Do not let the aid is not appropriate use. Although Indonesia is a developing country, it is commendable that the government's bravery is preparing the special allocation.
