INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Social Minister Idrus Marham said that the Family Hope Program (PKH) accompanist in practical politics must be dealt with firmly.

"If PKH's companion should take a position in a neutral position, there should be no side to one candidate in the election," said Social Minister in his statement received in Jakarta, Friday (4/27/2018)

Social Minister  said it had sent a team to Lamongan to clarify the alleged PKH Assisting politician.

"As a result, it can be ascertained that the case in Lamongan is not accompanied by PKH but PKH beneficiaries." PKH recipients are the people, the matter of political choice is their right to support who," he said.

Idrus asserted that if in the future found PKH Assistant to work or abused his work to support one candidate in the election then he must make a stamped statement to choose to remain a PKH companion or to resign.

"PKH is a government program to alleviate poverty and therefore should not be misused," he said.

Director General of Social Protection and Social Security of the Ministry of Social Affairs, Harry Hikmat, said that professionalism of companion is needed to reduce government poverty target to below 10 percent this year.

For that, counselors will be given various skills to help beneficiary families or KPM can graduate or get out of poverty.

Previously, a number of Lamongan residents reported to the Panwaslu office of Lamongan District on the alleged existence of PKH companion who did the distribution of stickers one of the election pair to the citizens of East Java.
