"Regional leaders should adress these issues. They should monitor these projects," he said.

The central government has launched the One Million House program since 2015. The Public Works and Public Housing Ministry has allocated Rp74 trillion for the 2015-2019 period.

"Poor people should be able to buy house. They should be able to get low interest rate," he said.
