The above is the dedicated page on
the website of the government mouthpiece People's Daily,
collecting the questions from the public prior to the "Two
Conferences" (i.e. the National People's Congress and
the Chinese Political Consultative Conference).
Below are the responses on the front
page when one of our China observers logged to the site.
And the entries on the following pages are found to be quite
similar with the main concerns concentrated in the following
Investigate into the corruption allegations against
Premier Wen Jiabao and bring him to justice;
Clear up false accusations against Bo Xilai and restore
Reverse the trend of privatisation of the state-owned
enterprises and protect the farmland;
- Stop importing GM food and prohibit
cultivating GM crops.
- Hi Premier, when are you going to step
New York Times must be driven out of China, because
it has exposed the top secret of a China's
top leader, am I right, Premier?
- Why dual
retirement system is still practiced in China? Why
the government dares not to reveal the amount of special
allowances that retired public servants receive?
- Hi premier, why do you betray the nation?
In the meanwhile, China's legal authority
also invited the online community to ask premier questions,
and the following are some typical responses:
- Get real, okay? Nowadays everyone goes online and all
know (Wen Jiabao's) 27
- Stop asking the question you guys already know the answer.
You know what Chinese people want most: arrest
- We want to get
our money back that the premier
lent to the US government. We need these money badly
for free medicare, free education and free housing.
- I'm a Chongqing
resident and the matter I care most is the fate of
Mr Bo Xilai. The police
daises on Chongqing streets are almost all demolished
by those who
now rule the city.
- China's Putin [Bo Xilai]
is being locked behind bars. I want to know when he can be
cleared of all false accusations?
- Have you already started to investigate [Wen
Jiabao's] 27 billion family assets?
- Let Gu
Kailai's mother to see her
daughter [Bo Xilai's wife]
so as to verify who was in
the courtroom during the trial. We majority Chongqing
residents have strong faith in Mr Bo Xilai, and believe
he conducted no wrong doings but did great service to the
- We want to see Mr Bo Xilai attend the two conferences.
- Without clearing false allegations against Bo Xilai,
bringing the real guilty ones to justice and returning to
a socialist path of "getting rich together", Chinese
people see no future for the nation.
- The following are what we demand: 1, investigate what
behind the prosecution of Bo Xilai; 2, stop the rush to privatisation
of the state-run enterprises; 3, probe the high treason crimes
related with the US home-loan purchase; 4, prohibit the
importation, cultivation and sale of GM crops; 5, pursue
criminal liability of the head officials in the State Council
for the misconduct in the above four areas.
- We'll follow closely to the case related to the $27
billion family assets and see if it will be investigated.
- Anyone who plays the part in framing up Bo Xilai will
be pursued relentlessly by the people.
- Due to the wrong prosecution of one man, people turn
their back on the government, and if the real criminals are
not punished, the regime will crumble sooner or later.
