"Since the era of Pak Jokowi's administration, the village is getting more advanced.In the era of Pak Jokowi also, the village funds are disbursed to the villages," Eko said when breaking the fast with the media crew in Jakarta on Friday (8/6/2017)

The village funds were first given to villages in 2015 with a total budget of Rp20.76 trillion. It later increased to Rp46.9 trillion in 2016, Rp60 trillion in 2017, and Rp60 trillion in 2018.

The village fund has been utilized to support the economy by building roads along 121,709 kilometers of roads, 1,960 bridges, 5,220 village markets, 5,116 boat moorings, 2,047 embungs, and 97,176 irrigation units.

The village fund is also used to improve the quality of life of the community with the development of Early Childhood Education (PAUD) as many as 21,357 units, 13,973 Posyandu units, 21,811 Village Owned Enterprises (BUMDes), sports facilities, and so on.

"The media have helped a lot of the programs in the village and encouraged community involvement. The first two years of village funding, the community has not been involved yet, but it is getting more and more involved, as the media are preaching good and bad villages. In accordance with the facts, "said Eko who rides the motor from his residence to the location of the event.

According to him, the government's great attention to the village should be given to reduce the social inequality. The gap if not reduced will cause social upheaval.

"The government is now determined to build Indonesia from the periphery, God willing, if Jokowi leads the village will progress, I think five years will not be enough, it needs two periods," Eko said.

On the occasion, Eko also invited the media to work together in building villages in the country.
