Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
When I entered, I was really surprised of how the sports palace (Istora) has changed completely from its previous state.
I really think that this massive renovation brings back the building as that in the 1960s and changes Istora Senayan into a place that we expect to be used for sports venues and also for other occasions.
And, by saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, I hereby inaugurate the renovated Bung Karno Sports Palace.
Wassalaamualaikum warahmatullaahi wabarakatuh. (PR, Cabinet Secretariat)(RAS/AW/YM/Naster)
