Opposition against the development of the country’s first high-speed railway is growing among members of the House of Representatives, who are calling on the government to halt it amid concerns over the state budget and irregularities.

House Deputy Speaker Fahri Hamzah demanded that President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo stop the project, citing various disadvantages of the rail connecting Jakarta and Bandung, West Java, which will be developed by Indonesia-China consortium PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC).
