And this symbolic handed over, added Inspector 2, Sahid Junaidi is an effort of the Government to ensure and oversee the National Budget mandated by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources which has been implemented in the form of social facilities and infrastructure that can be utilized directly by the community.





For the Pelelawan community, the presence of PJU-TS provides a sense of calm in carrying out worship and providing information for other activities at night because PLN lights often off. "Before there was a PJU-TS at the intersection for example, where the children of reciting the Al- Quran and the place of worship were in dark condition. Moreover, PLN electricity here often down off at night, even if the rain conditions more often. And also, for activities here at night days are increasing, for example those who has business sell are usually closed at 7pm now after there was a light, they will be closed at 10pm. The livelihood here is mostly oil palm farmers because here 100% of transmigrants from Java and local, "said Secretary of the Village of Beringin Makmur, Pelelawan, Bambang Sukoco .

"After installing this PJU, Alhamdulillah our society was helped, especially now that the street lighting from PLN has been cut off by PLN, I also say many thanks to the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources. Alhamdulillah has helped us and also today from the Central Ministry in Jakarta directly down to the village. We feel grateful that thankfully that this remote village, even the road that is passed through by the dry season, is dusty and when the rain comes muddy, "added the Head of Bukit Lingkar Village, Sumiarso Siman with sparkling eyes. The symbolic handed over of PJU-TS to the two districts completed the submission of the Riau Province PJU-TS as a whole.
