Without Ahok, Djarot said that he feels 'jomblo' Without Ahok, Djarot said that he feels 'jomblo' -Jakarta governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat said this year’s National Awakening Day, which fell on Saturday, was different without Basuki Tjahaja Purnama aka Ahok by his side.


Ahok, sentenced to two years in prison for blasphemy, is being detained at the Mobile Brigade Command detention center in Kelapa Dua, Depok.


"This year was different. In the past, I attended the commemoration with Ahok. This year, I'm jomblo [single]," Djarot said at Pluit reservoir in North Jakarta.


While giving a speech during a concert performance held to commemorate the special day, Djarot told hundreds of visitors that Ahok sent them his regards. "Ahok is healthy and in high spirits", Djarot said.


Some visitors attended the event wearing the iconic blue-and-red scarf, the signature Ahok-Djarot campaign icon. Some also brought posters bearing the phrases: NKRI Harga Mati! [The Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia is undisputed] and Save Ahok
