Lombok – The land polemic on the Mandalika MotoGP Circuit has yet to find a bright spot. Even though the Mandalika Lombok MotoGP event will be held soon. It also made one of the members of the Republic of Indonesia Parliament (DPR RI), HM. Syamsul Luthfi who incidentally came from the island of Lombok. He revealed that this polemic should be resolved immediately by the current governor. Because everything has been arranged neatly, rather than disrupt what has been built by the previous government.
“The governor must be responsible. The previous government had given a good legacy in solving this problem. All that remains is to continue, how come the Governor is making other plans that make this problem even more complicated. It does not make it easier for the community, instead it makes it difficult for people to get their rights,” explained Syamsul Luthfi.
He also doubted the seriousness of the NTB Governor for the Mandalika MotoGP event. He even accused the NTB Governor of not being able to defend the community. Especially around the Mandalika MotoGP circuit.
“This governor is unable to take care of his people. He cannot defend the rights of the people,” he growled.
He regretted the attitude of the provincial government which was not serious in helping the community in defending their rights. So ITDC as the Mandalika MotoGP vendor is arbitrary towards the community.
“The governor is like he doesn’t care about the people. Mandalika’s MotoGP event is less than a year away, but community land has not been paid for yet. The ITDC is playing on the land, the government is also silent,” he said.
Because of that, he was a pandemic in Mandalika’s MotoGP event only in his mind. MotoGP 2021 Mandalika has the opportunity to fail because of problems that never end.
“This will fail if community land has not been paid for. If this community land is taken forcibly, I will stand up for the community,” said Luthfi.
Lutfi also plans to meet several parties shortly. Including the Governor, to clarify this issue so that people immediately get their rights.
“I suspect there are scenarios that are detrimental to the interests of the community that will be taken in this step of land settlement,” he said.
He asked the government to use the social approach pattern and avoid the power approach pattern like the New Order era.
“The character of our society does not want to claim if it is not their right anymore. The proof is that 1,035 hectares that have been released have never claimed that they are landowners,” said the NasDem Party politician.
To the knowledge of the former Vice Regent of East Lombok, too, there was a lot of national infrastructure development in various regions. But it did not experience obstacles like those in the Mandalika KEK. That is because the pattern of the President’s approach used is the social approach, not the repressive approach or the power approach. Besides, the police or other law enforcement officers might not want to conflict with the community
“You know, the power approach has always proven to be unsuccessful, the police or apparatus may not want to be confronted with the public, President Jokowi has given examples of many times about how to settle the land, how come the ITDC doesn’t even follow the pattern, if it’s serious for just one week this problem must be solved, it’s easy because everything is clear,” he muttered.
From that, Syamsul Luthfi dared to challenge ITDC openly with the public. Because before, ITDC claimed the part of the community’s land was HPL.
“If you dare, let’s juxtapose the data. Don’t just admit the HPL, but how about the treatise, so everything is clear, who is right. The community also can’t admit if they don’t have proof of ownership,” he said.
Previously, the Member of Commission II of the Indonesian House of Representatives conducted a sudden inspection of the Mandalika Circuit. In the Sidak, he got some facts about land issues. Ranging from community land that was seized, until land that was not recognized. He concluded that there was a game behind this problem.
