MEDAN-Kafilah West Java on the 2018 National XVII Musabaqoh Tilawatil Quran (MTQ) title has a great opportunity to become the overall champion. Putting down 60 of the best, reliable and experienced caravans, supported by 10 companions, 22 coaches and 35 officials, the West Java contingent is ready to win the overall championship again after 7 years of fasting.
According to the Vice-Governor of West Java Uu Ruzhanul Ulum came directly to give motivation to the caravan in Medan, West Java caravans had a musabaqoh mentality and a strong mental match became the capital to win the title. Uu hopes they will release all of their capabilities in all competing branches.
"Our hope is for West Java caravans to spend all their abilities on all branches are contested. Our opportunities are huge for the overall champion," said Uu at Medan Madani Hotel, Sunday (10/07/18).
Before attending the opening ceremony of MTQ XXVII in the evening, Vice-Governor Uu deliberately first met all West Java caravans in his place to stay to encourage and tips in facing the race. Uu reminded the image of West Java was on their shoulders.
"West Java is known for religion, it is only natural becomes the overall champion. I hope also the official to guide them," he said.
On that occasion, Uu also gave another injection, that is, if he reaches his target, he is ready to pour a bonus. He said, the bonus would be more than the previous year.
"For the bonus, we will first discuss it with Yanbangsos, which is definitely there and bigger than before," he said.
According to him, the caravan that honors the name of West Java is rewarded accordingly. Not just for sportsmen, but the students are entitled to the same rights even more.
"They are chosen people, great people, not just any santri, so it's natural for the government to give awards. Don't let bonuses for sportsmen be fantastic while MTQ bonuses are small. We want more attention than before for both participants and champions," explained Uu.
