Recently, Yuzhong County of Gansu Province, a state-level poverty-stricken county, has invested a lot of money in landscaping, building doors, and the landscape upgrading project of Hancheng entrance and exit of Xiyu Expressway, Hancheng City, Shaanxi Province, which has been notified by the Ministry of Housing and Urban and Rural Construction together and aroused concern.
Yuzhong, Gansu Province, spent as much as 62 million yuan on landscaping and building doors. The distance between the two ancient gates in Qin and Han Dynasties was less than 500 meters, and the two landscape squares were far away from residential areas. The actual effect was not great, so it was difficult to hide the suspicion of image engineering. Hancheng, Shaanxi Province, spends 190 million yuan on super-large-scale rockery falls, artificial water systems and lighting projects. It is obviously a flower shelf and a performance project divorced from the local reality.
People often say that doing big things with little money and spending money on knives, but Yuzhong County and Hancheng City are doing small things with big money and spending money on knives. From the beginning to the completion of the construction process, there are many departments to publicize and report on this matter, indicating that some grass-roots Party members and cadres have problems in their ideological roots. Behind the luxurious landscape show, it is obvious that the flashy concept of political achievements is at work.
Perhaps, the purpose of these two citiesrampant doors and landscaping is to improve the citys appearance, enhance the citys face value, and make the city more reputable and attractive to the outside world. But in the hearts of the masses, the beauty and charm of the city lies not in the rendering of scenes, but in the temperature of peoples livelihood and the thickness of culture. This kind of excessive pursuit of visual effects and expensive landscape show does not have much benefit to the peoples sense of acquisition, happiness and security, on the contrary, it will make people resent extravagant and wasteful behavior, and damage the image of the party and government.
The concept of political achievements can not be seen or touched, but when projected into a specific work, it can truly feel its good and bad, right and wrong. Similar to the landscape show in Yuzhong and Hancheng, it has appeared in other places. How to prevent this kind of landscape show from coming on again? The key is to standardize the operation of power, from project approval, fund raising and utilization, to project construction, we must establish an effective, standardized and orderly system of restrictions, scientifically grasp the reality, fully investigate and demonstrate, widely solicit public opinion, and do meticulous, concrete and in-place work in each link. Only in this way can we take the people as the center and let the people recognize and be satisfied.
For this kind of show-making behavior which is divorced from reality and damages peoples wealth, we should be accountable. Leading cadres who pat their heads to make decisions should pay the price, be punished, be accountable for one, warn one and educate the other, so as to urge grass-roots Party committees and governments to seek facts and do good things for the people, and really spend money on the knife edge recognized by the masses.
The Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Construction issued a circular on the environmental renovation project at the north entrance of Yuzhong County in Gansu Province and the landscape upgrading project at the entrance and exit of Hancheng Highway in Xiyu City, Shaanxi Province.
On the Environmental Renovation Project of the North Entrance of Yuzhong County, Gansu Province
Yuzhong County, Gansu Province, has invested 62 million yuan in the construction of two ancient gate, a large sculpture and two landscape squares far from residential areas at the junction of Qiyun North Road and 312 National Road and the entrance of Qiyun North Road (less than 500 meters apart), which are 28 meters high and 145 meters wide. The average cost is 3425 yuan per square meter. Yuzhong County belongs to the poverty-stricken county of the country. Instead of giving priority to the improvement of peoples livelihood with limited financial resources, it borrows money to create scenery and create doors at the entrance and exit of the city, and blindly sets up projects and carries out image engineering.
Landscape Improvement Project of Hancheng Entrance and Exit of Xiyu Expressway in Hancheng City, Shaanxi Province
In the construction of landscape upgrading project of Hancheng entrance and exit of Xiyu Expressway, Hancheng deliberately pursues the image effect of carp leaping through Longmen, and constructs a huge amount of rockery falls, artificial water systems and lighting projects, with a total investment of 190 million yuan. Among them, the cost of non-functional rockery is as high as 2,000 yuan/square metre. The landscape engineering of this project is divorced from the local reality, blindly making landscapes, investing too much, and costing too much. It copies the landscaping methods of the southern region, which is very inconsistent with the geographical environment and overall style of the northern cities.
In view of the measures taken to deal with the related problems, the Ministry of Housing and Construction has decided to inform the public about the environmental improvement project at the north entrance of Yuzhong County, Gansu Province, and the landscape upgrading project at the entrance and exit of Hancheng, Xiyu Expressway, Hancheng City, Shaanxi Province. The Housing and Urban-Rural Construction Department of Gansu and Shaanxi Provinces should urge the peoples governments of Yuzhong County and Hancheng City to find out the causes of the problems found in the investigation and take remedial measures in time to rectify them; those who have become facts and have caused losses should seriously reflect on them, draw inferences from each other, make profound checks and resolutely put an end to such performance projects and image projects that are divorced from reality and from the masses. It happened again.
The Ministry of Housing and Construction requests that the Housing and Urban-Rural Construction Departments of Gansu and Shaanxi Provinces report the rectification of Yuzhong County and Hancheng City to the Ministry of Housing and Construction by April 15, 2019, respectively. The Ministry of Housing and Construction will send staff to the scene to supervise and inspect the situation.
