Purwakarta's Regent Dedi Mulyadi appreciated the statement of President Joko Widodo who will give sanctions to the low regions in the absorption of the budget.

Found in one of his offices, Twin Building at KK Singawinata Street on Monday (14/8), Dedi expressed support for the statement and claimed to have implemented it in the financial policy arrangements in Purwakarta.

"I appreciate and fully support Mr. President. Indeed, the funds absorbed from society to be used to build public welfare, "he explained.

The low absorption of the budget complained by President Joko Widodo apparently inversely proportional to the conditions that occurred in Purwakarta. According to Dedi, the absorption of budget in the second smallest area in West Java reaches 90%.

"We have 90 percent absorption rate, we use it for infrastructure, free health services, free education services and others for the community," he added.

The essence of Dedi's further development in increasing the budget absorption. So, according to the man who always wearing the black cap, it is unethical if the state taxes, levies, to other sources of income, but is deliberately deposited in the Bank.

"If deposited in a bank, yes the same as denying the philosophy of development. In Purwakarta the money is not piled up, but there is even high absorption, "he said.

Previously, President Jokowi in the delivery ceremony of Kartu Indonesia Sehat (KIS) and Kartu Indonesia Pintar (KIP) in Jember, East Java on Sunday (13/8) said that he had checked all accounts at the Regional Development Bank and other banks.

As a result, there are Rp220 trillion of funds that have not been absorbed. As a result, he remained all local heads are still low in the absorption of the budget in the area they lead.

"Yes we prepare the sanctions. You see, this money awaited the people for development, the time is not absorbed, "said the former Mayor of Solo. (*)
