INDUSTRY.co.id - Purwakarta- Chaos between the Coordinating Minister for the Economy Luhut binsar Panjaitan and Amien Rais also triggered a response from the 6th President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono who considered the government should accept criticism wisely and not arrogant.

"The government does not need to be arrogant in responding to criticism, the country is built not to become a state of power, so the sovereignty is in the hands of the people, but the people should not be absolute," said SBY in a meeting of the Tour de West Java Democrat Party in Purwakarta.

Amien Rais is known to criticize the division of land titles by President Joko Widodo. Amien said there was a lie in the program for land titles because 74 percent of the land in this country is controlled by certain groups but ignored by the government.

On an occasion, the Coordinating Minister for the Economy Luhut Bisar Panjaitan responded, "If you feel the cleanest you can talk, your sins are a lot too, just be quiet, do not play games, if you play games we can find your sins, who are you ? " which was delivered by Luhut in a national seminar at the BPK office on Monday (19/3/2018).

Luhut did not mention to whom the statement was addressed but his statement was then responded by PAN because he felt that the sentence was addressed to the Chairman of the Honorary Panel of PAN Amien Rais.
