INDUSTRY.co.id - Pangandaran - President Joko Widodo satirical Minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries Susi Pudjiastuti wished to become a vice president candidate when inaugurating offshore floating net cage offshore at Cikidang Fishing Port, Babakan, Pangandaran, Tuesday (04/24/2018)

"The order should not be Mrs. Susi to the minister, who orders the president, that Mrs. Susi is going to be president," he said.

In his speech, Minister Susi asked the Minister of Public Works and People's Housing Basuki Hadimuljino and Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi to dredge the river in Pangandaran Beach to be passed by the fishermen.

"It's okay, Mr. President is just a friend of mine, it's okay, Mr. Jokowi, it's just a job to be done, so you have to finish the job, that's all because if you do not get scotched, the fields are flooded so many people who have rice fields complain that their fields are flooded," said Susi in front of the President, Minister of PUPR, and Minister of Transportation.

Susi claimed the request is a request from the fishermen in the region Pangandaran.

"There is a request because they have 'nodongin' me early in the morning before you come, especially submitted to the Minister of PUPR and Pak Budi (Menhub) for the construction of 'backpotter' and pier," he said.

At the request, the President also had a dialogue with three related fishermen delivered by Minister Susi.

The three fishermen acknowledge that it is necessary for the existing rivers in the Pangandaran area to be disodet so that their boats can enter so as not hit by the waves.

At the request, the President gave two months to Minister Basuki to do the work and the Minister of PUPR agreed.
