VIVA National – The Mayor of Semarang, Hevearita Gunaryanti Rahayu, does not want the distribution of takjil to break the fast to disturb order. Because of that, he reminded the public regarding the prohibition of distributing takjil on the streets. This is stated in the Mayor’s Regulation which does not allow the provision of assistance to be carried out on the streets.
The Semarang City Government will immediately determine which points are allowed for the distribution of takjil, as a step so as not to disrupt traffic flow.
“Tomorrow Friday (24 March 2023), we will determine which points the community may use to distribute takjil, for example at the city hall, ex Wonderia, Taman Kasmaran. However, there are points which are prohibited, namely the Old City is not allowed. ” said the Mayor who is familiarly called Ms. Ita, Thursday, March 23, 2023.
Ita added, she would involve the Department of Transportation, Satpol PP, and regional stakeholders in determining the points so that the sharing action during the holy month of Ramadan would not disturb the community.
In addition, Ms. Ita also asked the community to maintain consumption patterns, especially during the month of Ramadan. Apart from keeping the nutrition balanced and not excessive, this is also to anticipate inflation, because during the month of Ramadan the level of public consumption tends to increase.
“The Semarang City Government together with related parties will continue to monitor prices in the field so that the prices of basic necessities can be controlled,” Mbak Ita said.
