“A budget of this size, if we turn it into 1.760 trillion, what do we want to buy, where do we want to go to war, what defense equipment do we want to build,” Connie said in an interview on one of the Youtube accounts Kontan.co.id confirmed, Sunday (30 / 5).
Connie regretted that the purchase plan was not well prepared. This is because he said the three-dimensional TNI Assistant for Planning and Budget did not know the use of the budget. Berita hari ini
