The Jakarta administration plans to introduce 1,900 “pink troops” to manage child-friendly integrated public spaces (RPTRA).

The introduction of the pink troops, workers with the Public Facility Maintenance Agency (PPSU), will be held during the inauguration of an additional 100 RPTRA at the National Monument (Monas) compound in Gambir, Central Jakarta.

Governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat said recently that the new pink troops would complete the administration’s rainbow troops comprising of, among others, orange troops who are assigned to clean up roads and neighborhoods, blue troops to clean rivers, yellow troops who repair damaged roads and other facilities and green troops who take care of gardens.

“[All] the rainbow troops will also attend the inauguration of the RPTRA because the facilities should be maintained together,” Djarot said on Sunday, as quoted by kompas.com.

Currently, the city has 186 RPTRA across the capital. The administration set aside from the city budget around Rp 157.8 billion (US$11.9 million) to build an additional 100 RPTRA in 2017. (vny)
