Jakarta – PDI Perjuangan appreciates President Joko Widodo’s meeting with the three presidential candidates, namely Anies Baswedan, Ganjar Pranowo and Prabowo Subianto. PDIP considered the meeting to be a positive thing.
“Now that three presidential candidates have been invited to have a friendly lunch with the president, that is a positive thing that must be appreciated,” said PDIP DPP Chairman Djarot Syaiful Hidayat after the Genter Center dialogue, in the East Jakarta area, Monday (30/10/2023).
Djarot believes Jokowi will take a neutral stance in the 2024 elections even though Jokowi’s eldest son, Gibran Rakabuming Raka, becomes Prabowo’s vice presidential candidate.
“I am sure that the President and all of us must be united in ensuring that the General Election and Presidential Election take place and be honest and fair, do not let the instruments of power favor one candidate, do not let, for example, even though Mas Gibran is Pak Jokowi’s son, the infrastructure of power is then used to support Prabowo, ” said Djarot.
Previously, the relationship between President Jokowi and PDIP was considered to be strained after Gibran ran for the 2024 presidential election alongside Prabowo. Djarot also revealed the response of PDIP General Chair Megawati Soekarnoputri when she found out that Gibran was Prabowo’s companion. Djarot said Megawati laughed and had no problem with Gibran’s attitude.
“If Mrs. Mega laughs, there’s no problem, it’s normal,” said Djarot.
However, it is different from PDIP sub-branches. Djarot said that they were disappointed with Gibran’s decision.
“But if it’s a branch child, a branch that’s struggling, it’s natural to be disappointed,” he said.
Even though he was disappointed, Djarot said that PDIP cadres were actually more enthusiastic about winning Ganjar Pranowo and Mahfud Md. Djarot said that although disappointed, PDIP cadres were not angry or gloomy.
“But the form of disappointment that I was happy about was converted into excitement into enthusiasm. I became more enthusiastic about winning Mr. Ganjar and Mr. Mahfud. So it was positive, so we were very happy,” he said.
Djarot himself admitted that he was disappointed with President Jokowi’s eldest son. Djarot believes that Gibran is a young person who has no patience.
“I’m just venting here, I’m disappointed with Mas Gibran for nothing, he’s young, he’s young, but he doesn’t have patience,” said Djarot.
Djarot said a leader should go through training first and there are stages that must be gone through.
“You don’t immediately cut off the compass because there is a red carpet, for example, you like getting hit, these are bad examples in my opinion for young people. I’m sorry. Not a good example,” said Djarot.
“Young people definitely have the values or spirit to fight, to fight, to fight, to improvise, to be creative, to work hard. This is the spirit of young people. To make changes in a better direction. This is the spirit of young people. Not those who expect privilege, not expecting a carpet, no process,” he added.
This disappointment was also expressed by PDIP Secretary General Hasto Kristiyanto. Hasto revealed that Jokowi and his family had been given privileges, but had left PDIP. Gibran responded to Hasto’s disappointment.
“Yes, please return it to Pak Hasto, huh (yes),” said Gibran at Solo City Hall, Monday (30/10/2023).
On the other hand, the Second Morning edition on Tuesday (31/10/2023) will also discuss the Head of the National Narcotics Agency (BNN), Komjen Petrus Reinhard Golose, inaugurating the anti-narcotics museum at the BNN head office. This museum, called Pranidha Ranajaya Ghanavara, is the first to be built in Indonesia and Southeast Asia.
“This is the first anti-narcotics museum, once again anti-narcotics in Indonesia. Even in Southeast Asia, no one has taken the initiative to create this,” said Petrus at the inauguration of the BNN RI Museum in Cawang, East Jakarta, Monday (30/10/2023).
The museum was established so that people can learn about the dangers and ways to deal with drugs in Indonesia.
“So if you want to learn, please. Learn about how to carry out narcotics countermeasures,” said Petrus.
According to Petrus, countering narcotics is not only the responsibility of BNN and the government, but also all elements of society. So efforts to fight drug trafficking must be visualized as part of history.
“Once again suppressing the illicit circulation of narcotics must be declared, it must be visualized, it must be collected into a part of history,” explained Petrus.
The Pranidha Ranajaya Ghanavara Museum displays various types of artifact collections from the Indonesian National Narcotics Agency, ranging from uniforms, duplicate bloodhounds, to examples of arresting equipment. The museum carries the concept of a smart museum which always updates the collections on display.
The museum contains various types of replicas of narcotics such as marijuana plants, methamphetamine, ecstasy, heroin, gorilla tobacco, and so on. In each form of narcotics replica, information is also included such as use, symptoms of use, and the effects of use.
