Gang crime taskforce on supervision duty
A central government taskforce on gang crime launched its first round of supervision work on Friday in Shanghai's Songjiang, Jinshan, Baoshan, Qingpu, Fengxian, Jiading and Chongming districts, as well as the Pudong New Area.
Taskforce head Wu Yuliang and deputy head Ma Ruimin were in Songjiang and Pudong, respectively.
Wu said: "Shanghai is an international metropolis with 24 million people. When it comes to fighting gang crime, all relevant law, discipline and inspection departments should be playing a leading and crucial role, with active participation of other industry departments."
He said the taskforce would go deeper into the grassroots, to village and town neighborhood committees, to listen to stories, check statistics, look for problems and clues and do research.
Ma said people's issues are paramount and should be accomplished without exception. All departments need to unite to root out evil forces, he said.
Weng Zuliang, Party secretary of the Pudong New Area, also took part in the supervision work.
