"The rice that you saw was buried today, it is not social assistance rice. It is JNE's rice," said Anthony Djono, when checking the land that was being stockpiled in Sukmajaya, Depok City, Wednesday, August 3, 2022.

According to Anthony, JNE, the distributor, took the rice from the Bulog warehouse. But on the way, the rice was wet because of the rain.

"After the rice was taken from the Bulog warehouse, on the way there was rain, so it was usually wet, there was mold, and it was no longer fit for consumption. It is impossible for us to distribute damaged rice to the public," he explained.
