Chairman of the PDIP Faction DKI DPRD Gembong Warsono responded to the claim Governor of DKI Jakarta Anies Baswedan who called flood in Jakarta dry within 1 day. Gembong said that Anies only heard reports from his subordinates.
“Yes, maybe Mr. Anies only listened to reports from his subordinates,” said Gembong, to reporters on Sunday (21/2/2021).
Gembong thought that Anies should have checked directly into the field. In the field, he said, the fact is that up to the third day there are still DKI areas where the floods have not subsided.
“The fact that today (Sunday) is still inundated,” said Gembong.
“Yes, maybe the provincial government has anticipated it, but failed to take precautions. Because this flood has claimed lives,” he said.
As previously reported, Governor of DKI Jakarta Anies Baswedan admitted that he had anticipated the potential for extreme rainfall to flush the capital. Anies said the alertness of his staff made some puddles dry in one day.
