Xi Jinping: How Did Xi Jinping Become The Equivalent Of Mao Zedong? From Plowing The Field To The Head Of State Of China: Although his father’s role is behind his political rise, it is Xi Jinping’s intelligence and diplomatic thinking that is behind his establishment as a state leader.
Beijing: Mao Zedong’s name came to everyone’s mind before saying the Communist Party of China. But that way of thinking is about to change this time, because the current president Xi Jinping is going to be equal to Mao. This was announced at the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of China. President Xi Jinping’s power has been increased many times in this conference. For this, several changes have been made in the Chinese constitution. Xi Jinping is referred to as the ‘core’ of the Communist Party. But how did he establish a monopoly in the world’s most populous and one of the largest democratic countries?
Xi Jinping was elected as President for the third time at the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of China. This is the first time a Chinese leader has been elected president for a third term. This unanimous decision, there is a glimpse that Mao Zedong’s equalization is going to be completed by Xi Jinping. This was the goal of Xi Jinping. This fight to become the commander-in-chief was not easy either.
If you look at the history of the Communist Party of China, you will see that Xi Jinping is very different from the rest of the world leaders. Is there any state leader standing in the present 21st century, who has farmed or spent days in a cave? In all these respects, Xi Jinping stands out from the rest. He lived a very difficult life during the Cultural Revolution in China. At that time he was only 15 years old.
According to the Communist Party, Xi Jinping spent his youth in Yan’an. At that time the area was known as a stronghold of communists. Xi Jinping used to farm there. But there are several theories against this too. Critics claim that Xi Jinping did not have to suffer. Rather, he was born with a golden spoon in his mouth. His father was a high-ranking official of the Communist Party of China. His life during the Cultural Revolution is presented to the eyes of the common people. There are reasons behind this as well. In 1968, the then Communist Party leader Mao Zedong ordered the youth of the society to accompany the peasants to the villages to learn about their difficult life.
During China’s purges in the 1960s, Xi Jinping’s father was jailed. At that time, the Xi Jinping family was subjected to various harassment. But the bad times didn’t last long either. Xi Jinping’s father was released from prison after 12 years. He was rehabilitated by the Communist Party. Several important responsibilities are also given. Meanwhile, Xi Jinping began to improve rapidly under his father’s rule.
How did Xi Jinping become the leader of the state?
While his father was behind his political rise, it is Xi Jinping’s intelligence and diplomatic thinking that have led him to carve out his own place as the head of state. Mao Zedong made the rule that China’s military, the People’s Liberation Army, would not be controlled by the state, but by the Communist Party. That rule is still followed. But when Xi Jinping came to power, he first expelled his opponents from within the military. Xi Jinping is determined to suppress dissenting voices.
It will not be enough if the opposition is zero, it is also necessary to have loyal troops, Xi Jinping understood this long ago. That is why he created a huge army of loyalists within the party, who would agree to his every word. He surprised everyone by filing criminal cases against members of the Standing Committee of the Politburo. The investigation launched against 47 lakh people in the name of an anti-corruption campaign was actually started to eliminate Xi Jinping’s rivals. From the Chinese press to social media – not a single word can be used against the country’s head of state.
