Tirbratanews.ntb.polri.go.id – at the Apple Field of the Regional Government of East Lombok Regency, a Flag Ceremony was held to commemorate the 75th Indonesian Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia 2020, Monday (17/08/20).
The event was attended by the Regent of Lotim, Drs. H. Sukiman Azmi, M.M., Dandim 1615 / Lotim Lt. Col. Inf Agus Prihanto Donny, S.Sos., Kapolres Lotim AKBP Tunggul Sinatrio, S.IK, MH., Veterans and Elements of Forkopimda Lotim.
In the ceremony, the Regent of East Lombok read out the mandate of the Governor of West Nusa Tenggara which stated that we are facing the Indonesian Independence Day in the midst of a difficult situation caused by the Corona pandemic. The lesson we learned from this pandemic is the importance of strengthening collectivity. This is because we can only face a pandemic with our strength. The government, doctors, nurses, experts and health workers will be helpless, without public support.
In NTB Province, we together with the NTB Provincial DPRD have established a Regional Regulation on Contagious Disease Control. This regional regulation is not expected to make it difficult, let alone bankrupt the community through fines for residents who do not wear masks.
The spirit of this regional regulation, together with suggestions related to health protocols, is simply to protect NTB residents from the threat of Corona. The difficulties of life that arise during this pandemic, must not dull our common sense.
Thank you, to all TNI / Polri apparatus and all elements, Regional Leadership Coordination Forum, as well as Regents / Mayors throughout NTB, for the cooperation and coordination in realizing NTB Gemilang so far.
Trust me, Pemprov. NTB, together with residents in all districts / cities and stakeholders, continues to strive to balance the demands of keeping the economy moving on the one hand, with efforts to free the area from the Corona outbreak on the other.
Congratulations on celebrating the 75th anniversary of Indonesia’s independence. By continuing to maintain a healthy mind, good intentions and hopes, we will be able to get out of our difficulties to become a better region and give meaning to independence. Hopefully in the future, Indonesia, especially NTB can become a baldatun thoyibatun warobbun gafuur. Aamiin.
