鼎丰棋牌官方网:Anies has made Jakarta worse: Protesters
The Jakarta Post
Some 60 protesters from the Nation Unity Community packed the front yard of City Hall on Monday demanding Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan do a better job sorting out the many problems in the city.
Instead of providing solutions to the city’s severe issues, such as traffic congestion and floods, Anies has made several problems worse, the protesters claimed.
“Why did he [Governor Anies] ask vendors to sell their goods on the streets instead of using the Block G building in Tanah Abang [market]?” community leader Silvia D. Soembarto asked wartakota.tribunnews.com, referring to Anies’ controversial policy of dedicating Jl. Jatibaru Raya to street vendors instead of for motorists.
The protestors also criticized the governor’s plan to revive the long-banned use of becak (pedicab) in residential areas. “Numbers of becak have begun to operate on main streets of West and North Jakarta [since the policy was announced],” she said. (vla)
