Several top Communist leader jailed for ‘attempting to overthrow’ Xi Jinping

In a news that is sure to hurt the unified party image of the China Communist Party, a top Chinese official confirmed that some of the most high-ranking members China’s Communist Party had plotted to seize power from President Xi Jinping. In a swift crackdown, the party and government moved to arrest and jail such party members and the whole operation has been briefed to Xi himself. It need be mentioned that Xi is already eyeing second term and hopes to be one of the most influential leaders of China after Mao Tse Tung. According to some observers, the crackdown was used to conduct a political purge of Xi’s opponents, the BBC reported.

Liu Shiyu, the chief of China’s Securities Commissions, on Thursday listed names of six “high-ranking and powerful officials, who were hugely greedy and corrupt. They plotted to usurp the party’s leadership and seize state power”.

Liu’s list included top names whose downfall attracted intense scrutiny, such as former security chief Zhou Yongkang, prominent politician Bo Xilai and Sun Zhengcai, a member of the decision-making Politburo body who was recently expelled.

The other names were former presidential aide Ling Jihua, the late Army General Xu Caihou and former top military officer Guo Boxiong.

“These cases were definitely shocking,” said Liu, who was speaking at a panel for the ongoing Communist Party congress in Beijing.

It was unclear whether he was referring to one coordinated plot or separate attempts at a coup.

Liu said that Xi had “addressed these problems and eliminated a huge and hidden danger to the party and the country”.

More than one million officials have been jailed or arrested in the corruption crackdown which began shortly after Xi took power in 2012.

The depth of the crackdown led many to speculate that some arrests were politically motivated and that part of Xi’s overall strategy was to consolidate power.

Xi had previously denied claims there was a “power struggle” within the party.

The claim comes as Xi created his own political ideology in the latest move to entrench his position in the Communist Party.

The party is widely expected to rewrite its constitution to enshrine this theory before congress ends next week.
