Bekasi, Saco-Indonesia.com — Dengan adanya Badan Kerja Sama Antarprovinsi dinilai belum efektif.

Bekasi, Saco-Indonesia.com — Dengan adanya Badan Kerja Sama Antarprovinsi dinilai belum efektif. Lembaga ini diharapkan mampu menyelesaikan persoalan Jakarta dan sekitarnya, seperti banjir dan kemacetan. Kenyataannya, belum ada hasil signifikan setelah selama lebih dari tiga dekade terbentuk.

Badan Kerja Sama Antarprovinsi (BKSP) terdiri dari Pemprov DKI Jakarta, Banten, dan Jawa Barat. Lembaga ini diketuai gubernur secara bergiliran dan dijalankan kepala sekretariat eselon II-B. Wakil Gubernur DKI Jakarta Basuki Tjahaja Purnama menilai, mereka yang duduk dalam BKSP seharusnya memiliki kewenangan lebih.

”Selama ini, mereka yang duduk di sana merasa menjadi orang buangan. Saya pikir lebih efektif jika persoalan antarwilayah diselesaikan dengan membentuk panitia sementara yang dikoordinasi Menteri Pekerjaan Umum,” kata Basuki, Rabu (15/1), di Jakarta.

Dia mengusulkan agar badan seperti ini ditiadakan saja. Sebab, selain memboroskan anggaran, badan ini juga tidak efektif menyelesaikan persoalan besar Jakarta dan sekitarnya. Pada perjalanannya, BKSP juga tidak mampu menjawab persoalan sektoral di setiap wilayah. Buktinya, pemerintah daerah yang tergabung dalam lembaga itu belum satu visi, terutama dalam penanganan banjir.

Sebelumnya, Direktur Jenderal Sumber Daya Air Kementerian Pekerjaan Umum Mohammad Hasan mengatakan, kerja sama antara Kementerian Pekerjaan Umum langsung dan daerah tertentu, seperti DKI, cukup membuahkan hasil. Kerja sama seperti pembagian tugas dalam normalisasi sungai, pihaknya menjalankan proyek fisik dan DKI membebaskan lahan, berjalan cukup lancar.

DKI juga dianggap proaktif menjalankan tugasnya, seperti perbaikan situ/waduk. Akan tetapi, nasib situ/waduk di daerah lain hingga kini masih mengenaskan. Masalah ini menjadi perhatian Hasan meskipun ia susah berbuat banyak karena revitalisasi situ/waduk berada di tangan pemerintah daerah.

”Namun akan tetap kami upayakan agar situ/waduk di sekitar Jakarta tetap berjalan baik revitalisasinya,” kata Hasan.

Ultimatum warga bantaran

Terkait tersendatnya normalisasi kali, Basuki memberi ultimatum kepada warga yang tinggal di bantaran sungai. Setelah satu tahun ke depan, warga harus bersedia meninggalkan tempat tinggalnya. Sejalan dengan itu, Pemprov DKI mempercepat pembangunan rumah susun sewa di sejumlah wilayah.

”Ini tahun terakhir. Mohon maaf kepada orang yang tinggal di pinggiran sungai, saya pasti gusur Anda. Kami selama ini menahan karena tidak ingin dianggap melanggar HAM (hak asasi manusia). Nanti kami lakukan relokasi, silakan jika masih dianggap melanggar HAM,” kata Basuki.

Untuk mengurangi dampak banjir, Pemprov DKI bekerja sama dengan pemerintah pusat mulai normalisasi Kali Pesanggrahan, Angke, dan Sunter. Namun, program ini terkendala pembebasan lahan. Warga yang tinggal di bantaran kali tidak bersedia pindah dengan alasan yang beragam.

Sampai akhir 2013, pembebasan lahan di Kali Pesanggrahan, Jakarta Selatan, belum berjalan lancar. Pembebasan lahan baru bisa dilakukan di empat dari sembilan kelurahan. Di empat kelurahan tersebut terdapat sembilan bidang tanah seluas 24.969 meter persegi yang sudah dibebaskan. Nilai tanah yang dibebaskan itu Rp 42,821 miliar.

Lahan yang belum dibebaskan di Kali Pesanggrahan sepanjang 28 kilometer. Adapun pembebasan lahan di Kali Angke dan Sunter masih tahap pematokan lahan dan negosiasi harga.

Jalin kerja sama

Pemerintah Kabupaten dan Kota Tangerang berinisiatif melakukan kerja sama dalam antisipasi, menanggulangi, dan merencanakan desain daerah bebas banjir. Langkah itu diambil mengingat kerja sama Jabodetabek hingga saat ini belum ada realisasinya.

”Kerja sama ini baru terjalin antara Kabupaten dan Kota Tangerang. Sejauh ini kerja sama dengan Tangerang Selatan belum dijajaki. Ke depannya, kami akan menjajaki kerja sama dengan Tangerang Selatan dan Pemprov Banten,” kata Bupati Tangerang Ahmed Zaki Iskandar, Rabu.

Sementara itu, meskipun telah dilarang berjualan di tepi dinding Kanal Barat, sejumlah pedagang tetap nekat memasang tenda. Ratna Kumala (37), warga RT 014 RW 004, Petamburan, Jakarta Pusat, misalnya, Rabu, mendirikan tenda. Saminem, warga RT 001 RW 007, Kelurahan Bendungan Hilir, Pejompongan, Jakarta Pusat, berharap ia dibolehkan lagi membuka warung nasi di tepi dinding Kanal Barat.

As he reflected on the festering wounds deepened by race and grievance that have been on painful display in America’s cities lately, President Obama on Monday found himself thinking about a young man he had just met named Malachi.

A few minutes before, in a closed-door round-table discussion at Lehman College in the Bronx, Mr. Obama had asked a group of black and Hispanic students from disadvantaged backgrounds what could be done to help them reach their goals. Several talked about counseling and guidance programs.

“Malachi, he just talked about — we should talk about love,” Mr. Obama told a crowd afterward, drifting away from his prepared remarks. “Because Malachi and I shared the fact that our dad wasn’t around and that sometimes we wondered why he wasn’t around and what had happened. But really, that’s what this comes down to is: Do we love these kids?”

Many presidents have governed during times of racial tension, but Mr. Obama is the first to see in the mirror a face that looks like those on the other side of history’s ledger. While his first term was consumed with the economy, war and health care, his second keeps coming back to the societal divide that was not bridged by his election. A president who eschewed focusing on race now seems to have found his voice again as he thinks about how to use his remaining time in office and beyond.

Obama Speaks of a ‘Sense of Unfairness’

Obama Speaks of a ‘Sense of Unfairness’

At an event announcing the creation of a nonprofit focusing on young minority men, President Obama talked about the underlying reasons for recent protests in Baltimore and other cities.

In the aftermath of racially charged unrest in places like Baltimore, Ferguson, Mo., and New York, Mr. Obama came to the Bronx on Monday for the announcement of a new nonprofit organization that is being spun off from his White House initiative called My Brother’s Keeper. Staked by more than $80 million in commitments from corporations and other donors, the new group, My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, will in effect provide the nucleus for Mr. Obama’s post-presidency, which will begin in January 2017.

“This will remain a mission for me and for Michelle not just for the rest of my presidency but for the rest of my life,” Mr. Obama said. “And the reason is simple,” he added. Referring to some of the youths he had just met, he said: “We see ourselves in these young men. I grew up without a dad. I grew up lost sometimes and adrift, not having a sense of a clear path. The only difference between me and a lot of other young men in this neighborhood and all across the country is that I grew up in an environment that was a little more forgiving.”

Organizers said the new alliance already had financial pledges from companies like American Express, Deloitte, Discovery Communications and News Corporation. The money will be used to help companies address obstacles facing young black and Hispanic men, provide grants to programs for disadvantaged youths, and help communities aid their populations.

Joe Echevarria, a former chief executive of Deloitte, the accounting and consulting firm, will lead the alliance, and among those on its leadership team or advisory group are executives at PepsiCo, News Corporation, Sprint, BET and Prudential Group Insurance; former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell; Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey; former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.; the music star John Legend; the retired athletes Alonzo Mourning, Jerome Bettis and Shaquille O’Neal; and the mayors of Indianapolis, Sacramento and Philadelphia.

The alliance, while nominally independent of the White House, may face some of the same questions confronting former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins another presidential campaign. Some of those donating to the alliance may have interests in government action, and skeptics may wonder whether they are trying to curry favor with the president by contributing.

“The Obama administration will have no role in deciding how donations are screened and what criteria they’ll set at the alliance for donor policies, because it’s an entirely separate entity,” Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, told reporters on Air Force One en route to New York. But he added, “I’m confident that the members of the board are well aware of the president’s commitment to transparency.”

The alliance was in the works before the disturbances last week after the death of Freddie Gray, the black man who suffered fatal injuries while in police custody in Baltimore, but it reflected the evolution of Mr. Obama’s presidency. For him, in a way, it is coming back to issues that animated him as a young community organizer and politician. It was his own struggle with race and identity, captured in his youthful memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” that stood him apart from other presidential aspirants.

But that was a side of him that he kept largely to himself through the first years of his presidency while he focused on other priorities like turning the economy around, expanding government-subsidized health care and avoiding electoral land mines en route to re-election.

After securing a second term, Mr. Obama appeared more emboldened. Just a month after his 2013 inauguration, he talked passionately about opportunity and race with a group of teenage boys in Chicago, a moment aides point to as perhaps the first time he had spoken about these issues in such a personal, powerful way as president. A few months later, he publicly lamented the death of Trayvon Martin, a black Florida teenager, saying that “could have been me 35 years ago.”

That case, along with public ruptures of anger over police shootings in Ferguson and elsewhere, have pushed the issue of race and law enforcement onto the public agenda. Aides said they imagined that with his presidency in its final stages, Mr. Obama might be thinking more about what comes next and causes he can advance as a private citizen.

That is not to say that his public discussion of these issues has been universally welcomed. Some conservatives said he had made matters worse by seeming in their view to blame police officers in some of the disputed cases.

“President Obama, when he was elected, could have been a unifying leader,” Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, a Republican candidate for president, said at a forum last week. “He has made decisions that I think have inflamed racial tensions.”

On the other side of the ideological spectrum, some liberal African-American activists have complained that Mr. Obama has not done enough to help downtrodden communities. While he is speaking out more, these critics argue, he has hardly used the power of the presidency to make the sort of radical change they say is necessary.

The line Mr. Obama has tried to straddle has been a serrated one. He condemns police brutality as he defends most officers as honorable. He condemns “criminals and thugs” who looted in Baltimore while expressing empathy with those trapped in a cycle of poverty and hopelessness.

In the Bronx on Monday, Mr. Obama bemoaned the death of Brian Moore, a plainclothes New York police officer who had died earlier in the day after being shot in the head Saturday on a Queens street. Most police officers are “good and honest and fair and care deeply about their communities,” even as they put their lives on the line, Mr. Obama said.

“Which is why in addressing the issues in Baltimore or Ferguson or New York, the point I made was that if we’re just looking at policing, we’re looking at it too narrowly,” he added. “If we ask the police to simply contain and control problems that we ourselves have been unwilling to invest and solve, that’s not fair to the communities, it’s not fair to the police.”

Moreover, if society writes off some people, he said, “that’s not the kind of country I want to live in; that’s not what America is about.”

His message to young men like Malachi Hernandez, who attends Boston Latin Academy in Massachusetts, is not to give up.

“I want you to know you matter,” he said. “You matter to us.”

Hired in 1968, a year before their first season, Mr. Fanning spent 25 years with the team, managing them to their only playoff appearance in Canada.
