"Initially we plan to only do randai competition, but then it adds other activities such as minang song competition and education by students," South Solok Police Chief AKBP M Nurdin remarked in Padang Aro, Tuesday.
Nevertheless, not all traditional villages have sent their representatives to join the randai competition.
In the future, he hopes that all nagari can send their own team to join the cultural festival because it is an original traditional art of Minangkabau.
He hopes that the local government will include "police and heritage" to South Solok tourism calendar so it can be implemented every year and preserve the original culture of the area.
Maenwhile, South Solok Regent, Muzni Zakaria thanked the Police who helped the government to preserve culture and tourism promotion.
"We will make police and heritage as an annual agenda and next year we will budget it," he added. (cha)
