The third event of National Recreation Sports Festival (FORNAS) launched by Imam Nahrawi, Minister of Youth and Sports of Republic of Indonesia, has reportedly left plenty of unattended litter on the location, Niti Mandala Field in Renon.

Seeing that the event, held by Federation of Indonesian Recreation Sports or FORMI, resulted in litters being scattered everywhere made Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika very annoyed.

“The mess should have been cleaned last night. Those who held the even are responsible to do the clean up too. Please have some mercy on our cleaners, they work very..very hard. At least have some pity,” the Governor said during a Free Speech event “Bebas Bicara Apa Saja” (PB3AS) at Renon Field, Denpasar last Sunday (11/10/2015).

The former Bali Police chief added that littering issue may not be a 'big' issue but it cannot be taken for granted. “This ‘not so big’ issue has brought me to the edge. We all must accustom ourselves to cleanness, otherwise it will lead to environmental disaster with litters everywhere,” Pastika emphasised.
