President Xi urges Communist Party to win back people뭩 hearts
FEBRUARY 06, 2014 06:47  
Some raised a claim that Chinese President Xi Jinping뭩 strong anti-corruption campaign was agreed by former leaders including Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao.

The China Times, a Taiwanese newspaper, said on Wednesday that President Xi said in the meeting with former and incumbent party leaders at Beidaihe, Hebei Province that unless they win back the hearts and minds of the people within three years, both the Communist Party and the country will collapse within a decade. President Xi, who was a deputy president then, raised a concern over losing the people뭩 support, saying, 밫he current situation of the Communist Party is so similar to that of Kuomintang in 1948. Kuomintang lost people뭩 support due to its serious corruption in the late 1940s and lost in the Chinese Civil War, eventually being forced to move to Taiwan.

President Xi stressed to former President Jiang and Hu that China뭩 vital point would be losing people뭩 trust and if it happens, China would face the risk of Jasmine Revolution. Former President Hu said at the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in November 2012, 밬nless the corruption is addressed, both the party and the country will collapse. His remark seems to be based on the prior consensus with President Xi. While some claim that President Xi뭩 anti-graft campaign is to remove his predecessors, there was agreement between former and current leaders.
