National sports project

Man: Now that it’s all over, how come it’s just being abandoned?

Youth & Sports Minister Andi Mallarangeng: It’s a National Sports Project isn’t it.

Having spent trillions of rupiah of tax payer’s money on the construction of facilities for the 2008 National Games (National Sports Week, PON) in East Kalimantan, a lack of funds and political bickering over who is responsible for maintenance has left most of the facilities in such a state of disrepair that they are no longer usable.
