The man who is familiarly called Kang Hasan also appealed to the people living in the watershed (DAS) Citarum to participate in preserving the environment.
"I am fully committed to preserving Citarum, because water is an indung, a source of community life that should be maintained," said Kang Hasan while visiting the Citarum watershed area in Kp Cijeruk RW07 and RW8 Ds Bojongsari Bojong Soang District Bandung Regency, Friday (9/2/2018).
