Regarding Chinese New Year Commemoration, Restu Hapsari: All Thanks to Gus Dur and Megawati


jpnn.com, JAKARTA – All ethnic Chinese in the world are currently happy. The reason is, ethnic Chinese residents are currently celebrating Chinese New Year 2021. However, the 2021 Chinese New Year is still in the atmosphere of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Not only ethnic Chinese, for people in Indonesia, there is a very special impression of the Chinese New Year commemoration.

On this day, PDI-P is also celebrating the Chinese New Year with Banteng as a form of historical awareness in Indonesia.

This received a positive response from the Secretary General of the DPP Taruna Merah Putih (TMP) Restu Hapsari. He emphasized that this event must get the attention of all Indonesian people as a momentum to glue unity.

“All Indonesian citizens need to maintain Indonesianness consciously and respectfully so that Pancasila and Bhinneka Tunggal Ika will be more deeply rooted in Indonesian soil,” said Restu, Friday (12/2/2021)

Restu said that the Chinese New Year is commemorated as well as a national holiday officially stipulated by Mrs. Megawati Soekarnoputri when she became President of the Republic of Indonesia.

Previously, during the New Order the Lunar New Year celebrations were banned, until finally Gus Dur revived the Lunar New Year celebrations.

According to Restu, a pluralistic Indonesia with a diversity of ethnicities, religions, races and groups should actually become a national bond that crosses the boundaries of SARA.
