Pro Jokowi of Papua Province Appreciates Performance of Transportation Minister

Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi.

JAKARTA, NNC - Chairman of Pro Jokowi (Projo) Regional Executive Board (DPD) of Papua Province, Moses Morin, appreciated the performance of the Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi for the opening new lines of sea toll road and air bridges transportation facilities, so that the one price fuel and cheap cement price in Papua became a reality.

"Indeed, during the construction of airport facilities and docks in Papua what is very disturbing is the land, but we want to emphasize the issue of land compensation is the responsibility of the local government so that in the construction there must be cooperation between the parties concerned," said Morin in a written release, in Jakarta, Saturday (4/28/2018).

According to him, all facilities are opened from coastal areas to mountainous areas of Papua. Thus, the Minister of Transportation has run the Fifth Principle of Pancasila, that is, social justice for all Indonesian people.

The most important sector in Papua is transportation and transport regulations. According to Morin, the task carried by Budi Karya is quite heavy now.

He asserted his side keeps escorting all forms of connectivity development from sea, river and air to give the common pricing of the needs of the people of Papua so that the Land of Papua can benefit from all government programs.

Morin added that his party also supports one of the Ministry of Transportation's programs related to the plan to build airports in areas that are very isolated and in areas still occupied by groups such as the separatist Agdugume.

"This proves the country is present there as long as it is still in the territory of NKRI [Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia]," said Morin, as quoted from Antara.
