On May 9, Shanghai resident Zhao Qiang (pseudonym) told the Epoch Times reporter that the epidemic prevention and control in Shanghai was like a farce, and the “Jiangsu Gang” made Shanghai a mess.
Zhao Qiang said: “Our Shanghai government, not the city government, but our district government and sub-districts. Many people are out-of-towners who have been transferred from the military in Jiangsu. It stands to reason that according to the national regulations on the placement of veterans, he He should have returned to his hometown, but he transferred to our Shanghai and formed a ‘Jiangsu Gang’.”
He pointed out: “The ‘Jiangsu Gang’ includes the Air Force and the Armed Police Force. These people have no culture, neither management nor law. When asked to manage an international metropolis, they will only use savage means. Just like the Red Guards in the past, they shouted the slogans of the Communist Party every day, threatening and intimidating the people. There are also many ‘Dabai’ who are also outsiders, and all day longcommon peopleScrambled into a ball. “
Zhao Qiang pointed out: “No one unloaded the supplies sent from various places, many vegetables were rotten, and the management was in a mess.”
Gu Guoping, a retired university teacher in Shanghai, also told The Epoch Times, “Grass-level officials are corrupt and abusing their power, and their power has risen to the sky. It is difficult to make money from the country and to make money from the epidemic. They detain the relief materials sent to us from all over the country, and they themselves Sell it to us at a high price.”
Gu Guoping revealed: “They have canceled the normal online shopping. They are the head of the group to buy a lot of things, and they charge sky-high shipping costs. The above will not deal with them. The city leaders will only make false impressions, and they will not know anything else. Go inside, everything is fine.”
In mid-April, during his inspection in Shanghai, Vice Premier Sun Chunlan was revealed to be posing on the rooftop of the Yuyuan Group building in an old community in Shanghai, and high-level officials in Shanghai cooperated with the fraud on the spot.
During his visit to Dahua Yuanjing Jiayuan, the vice mayor of Shanghai was also revealed to have filled the refrigerators of residents beforehand, and the official announcement also filled a table with items for close-up shots. Meanwhile, CCTV reported that Jiangsu Yancheng alone sent 25 million tons of supplies to Shanghai.
Zhao Qiang criticized, “These people do things without logic, nor do they have normal thinking. 25 million tons of supplies are equal to 1 ton of supplies per person in Shanghai. Can people still starve to death? For example, during the lockdown, the country’s epidemic prevention law stipulates that, The government should provide all our materials for free. It provides a little bit now, and then asks you to buy it at a high price. Many people buy materials that are donated to us for free from other places.”
Gu Guoping believes that the chaos in Shanghai is due to infighting factors. “Our Shanghai has always been a place where power struggles. These people have no ability but come to lead Shanghai. The opposition is not convinced and wants to belittle his political achievements. They are also divided internally, fighting each other for power and profits. , intrigue and deceive me, causing the common people to followsuffer. “
He said: “The entire Chinese economy is in a mess now, because Shanghai is the leader of the national economy and the locomotive of the economy. The closure of the epidemic in Shanghai has ruined the economy, threatening their ruling foundation, and public opinion has also fallen to a low point, so Said they are in a hurry, and the next step may be to find a scapegoat to soothe public grievances.”
Some Chinese netizens calculated that Shanghai’s closure of the city lost 27.7 billion yuan a month. Others believe that this is just a tangible cost that is visible and reflected in official records, and that the sum of tangible and intangible costs per Shanghainese and the impact on regional gross domestic product (GDP) will be astronomical.
In April, Ye Jingzi, the granddaughter of the CCP Marshal Ye Jianying, once posted on Weibo that the chaos in Shanghai, “It is impossible for no one to deliberately make trouble. Guangzhou and Shenzhen are not so messed up, how can the big magic capital (Shanghai) be like this? The loss is bigger than Ukraine.”
Current affairs commentator Zhou Xiaohui published an article saying that some outside analysts pointed out that the chaos in Shanghai was caused by the high-level struggle of the CCP.
Zhou Xiaohui believes that those who have the ability to deliberately cause trouble in Shanghai are naturally from Jiangsu, the Jiang Zemin faction who have been entrenched in Shanghai for many years, and the corrupt officials in Shanghai who have formed a community of interests with them. However, the highest level of Beijing will never compromise on this choice, insisting on the so-called dynamic clearing. In the wrestling between the two sides, the Shanghainese have become the victims of the political power struggle.
