JAKARTA - Solo Mayor Gibran Rakabuming Raka and Deputy Mayor Teguh Prakosa continued to make buzz after being inaugurated on Friday, February 26. In addition to reviewing the vaccination program, the two of them are also actively conducting blusukan at several points in the city of Solo.

Last Monday, March 1, for example, Gibran visited the former HP 16 or Semanggi slum area with the ranks of the Surakarta City Government after last Friday reviewing vaccination activities for traders in Klewer Market and Pasar Gede Solo.

The busyness of the eldest son of President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) did not make him forget to interact directly with the people of Solo. The Municipal Government of Solo, via its official twitter @PEMKOT_SOLO, distributed posters containing information on complaints that went directly to Gibran's cellphone number.

In this poster with a green background, Gibran is seen wearing his daily official clothing (PDH) complete with a rank sign and a nameplate that reads Gibran.

The WhatsApp number is listed at 0812-2506-7171 and Instagram gibran_rakabuming.

"Complaints directly to the Mayor can register via the WhatsApp number listed above," read the poster.

This upload was also retweeted by the Governor of Central Java (Central Java) Ganjar Pranowo. "Solo residents want to complain? Please (please)," Ganjar tweeted at @ganjarpranowo, quoted Wednesday, March 1 evening.

Not only Gibran, several officials in the Central Java region also did the same thing, namely distributing information numbers for public complaints. For example, the Regent of Batang Wihaji, the Regent of Sukoharjo and Pati.

Looking back, DKI Jakarta once had a leader who did the same thing. Especially if it wasn't Basuki Tjahaja Purnama alias Ahok when he accompanied Joko Widodo as Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta 2012-2014.

At that time, Ahok asked the residents of the capital city not to hesitate to contact him if there was a problem. In fact, Ahok has 11 numbers that are ready to listen to citizen reports.

"I have 11 phone numbers, SMS is better. This is the local government phone number, 081317446408. This is my original number for the Regional Government network in DKI," Ahok said on November 8, 2012.

Ahok's openness in listening to residents' remarks was consistently carried out when he was Governor of DKI Jakarta. Every morning, Ahok's 'headquarters' at the City Hall of DKI are crowded with Jakarta residents who want to complain about public service issues.
