The BLT was prioritized to be given in cash to prevent recipients from crowding during the distribution. “The provision of social cash assistance is only temporary. If the situation is back to being conducive, the government will prioritize non-cash social assistance distribution,” said Abraham.

Body Kamhar Lakumani, deputy of Democratic Party’s election campaign body on Tuesday (5/4) questioned President Jokowi’s policy to dispense BLT. According to him, this is in contrast to Jokowi’s stance when he was still Jakarta governor when he strongly rejected the BLT program.

“This only confirms that in fact he [Jokowi] does not understand what he is commenting on. Moreover, when he was Jakarta governor, he was working hard on polishing his image to win the presidential race,” said Kamhar. (rr)
