The South China tour by Xi Jinping, the new leader of the Communist Party of China (CPC), to Shenzhen, with no traffic control, sets a good example of implementing the eight regulations on the change of work style for officials at varying levels nationwide.
Shenzhen TV reported yesterday that the general secretary travelled over 150 kilometers, going through several trunk roads, with no single road sealed during the whole journey.
According to the Shenzhen police, Xi Jinping’s car was seen running quietly on the road along with buses, private cars and taxis, bringing nothing inconvenient to the public traffic.
“We didn’t seal the road or control the traffic, didn’t reset the signal light, we just guided the traffic as any typical day.” Zhu Bin, a traffic police officer told the media.
On Dec. 8, Shenzhen citizens were surprised to see General Secretary Xi turning up in Shenzhen Lianhuashan (Lotus Mount) Park. Many, hardly concealing excitement, rushed forward to shake hands with him.
A local resident said,:“Fancy meeting the top leader here. I feel so good and happy!”
