On the same occasion, the Coordinator of the Jakarta BEM Movement, Ahmad Supardi, appreciated the social service activities held by the Korlantas Polri.
He ensured that students and the police were united against the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We hope that our fellow students will continue to focus on learning, and continue to focus on overseeing the government’s performance. Today I say that students and the police are united,” said Ardi.
He considered that there was a lot of stigma circulating that the police and students always clashed.
According to him, the group that built the narrative only wanted to divide the nation.
“However, I say here that students and police are one goal for our country, Indonesia, to live a fair and prosperous life,” said Ardi.
Separately, the Head of RT 06 RW 04 Kwitang Village, Jaenal Arifin also admitted that he was happy with this activity.
Moreover, in the area there are many immigrants to the elderly who really need help.
“I’m also really happy about activities, it’s good too, during pandemic times like this. So we, as citizens, must expect help,” said Jaenal.
