Suara.com – Deputy Chair of the Prabowo-Gibran National Campaign Team (TKN), Erwin Aksa, admitted that his party was still using Ultra High Temperature (UHT) milk produced by large companies to distribute to residents during this campaign period. So far, his team has not used milk produced by Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs).
Erwin said that his party prefers UHT produced by large companies because the product is more guaranteed. Moreover, milk is a healthy food that is susceptible to spoiling if it is not produced and packaged properly.
He admitted that he was worried that it would become a problem if he distributed untested milk to the public.
“So why UHT, what will happen if it goes stale? What if it suddenly expires? Then someone will get a disease that we will blame again,” said Erwin in the Menteng area, Central Newsdelivers.com, Tuesday (5/12/2023).
Apart from that, this Golkar politician believes that the essence of distributing free milk is to provide healthy consumption for the community, especially children.
“The essence of all this is what I said earlier, equal justice, because we want to build an economy that is fair, equitable and impartial,” he said.
“So don’t talk about the product being merchandise. Look at the value, that the Indonesian people need nutrition, the Indonesian people need protein, they need to eat,” he added in conclusion.
Previously, Vice Presidential Candidate (Cawapres) number two, Gibran Rakabuming Raka suddenly appeared on Car Free Day (CFD) on Jalan MH Thamrin or HI Roundabout, Central Newsdelivers.com, Sunday (3/12/2023) morning.
Quoting Antara, Gibran distributed milk to the community in the HI Roundabout CFD area. Several figures such as Uya Kuya, PAN politician Sigit Purnomo Said Samsudin or Pasha Ungu and the National Campaign Team (TKN) Rahayu Saraswati were also seen helping Gibran distribute milk boxes.
They distributed milk boxes from in front of the Grand Hyat Hotel, then walked along the HI roundabout. While distributing milk boxes, Gibran was also observed serving selfie requests from a number of people.
It is not uncommon for Gibran to shake hands with a number of people who want to congratulate him. Until now, Gibran has been observed still giving milk boxes to the public.
Regarding his activities in the CFD area, Gibran denied that he was campaigning.
“There’s no campaign props (APK),” said Gibran when met on Jalan MH. Thamrin.
Gibran claimed that his activity of distributing milk boxes, assisted by a number of figures, was not to influence people to vote for him in the presidential election.
However, Gibran admitted that there was a reason his party chose CFD on Jalan MH Thamrin as the location for distributing milk.
“We just chose the closest location and the largest crowd,” he said briefly.
