1NEWS, The Deputy Chair of the MPR RI Lestari Moerdijat believes that the Covid-19 pandemic that has hit Indonesia and the world in general will surely pass.
Lestari said, the signs of the end of this pandemic are already visible. Among other things, the reduced number of transmission cases, reduced hospital occupancy rates, and reduced number of deaths due to Covid-19.
However, Lestari reminded, Covid-19 will not immediately disappear from the earth of Indonesia and the world in general. As Covid-19 experts have warned, this virus will turn from a pandemic to an endemic. Therefore, the community must be prepared to carry out a new normal situation, while still carrying out health protocols.
“The pandemic has resulted in a multidimensional crisis. Therefore we must remain united, work together, face all possibilities by holding on to Pancasila, the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia, the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia and Bhinneka Tunggal Ika,” said Lestari Moerdijat adding.
This statement was conveyed by Lestari in front of the participants of the Socialization of the Four Pillars of the MPR RI, a collaboration between the MPR and the Indonesian National Labor Union (SBNI). The event took place in the Islamic Center Meeting Room, Brebes Regency, Central Java, Sunday (12/9/2021).
The Four Pillars of the Indonesian People’s Consultative Assembly, said Rerie, as Lestari’s nickname, have proven to be able to glue the Indonesian people together in the face of all threats and challenges. Including the current Covid-19 pandemic. Because the current pandemic is not the first, but there have been other pandemics that came earlier, and the four national consensus, it was able to overcome.
“This consensus can be a guide in life, including a guide to ideals, just, prosperous and civilized,” said Rerie again.
Therefore, even though there are many ideologies that Rerie said, the Indonesian nation must not turn away from Pancasila as the basis and ideology of the nation. The 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia as the constitution, the Republic of Indonesia as the form of the state and Bhinneka Tunggal Ika as the state motto.[TIM]
