CENTRAL leaders have put their stamp back on a super office responsible for the capital's infrastructural development. State Council Secretary General, Luo Gan, has been put in charge of the Beijing Planning and Construction Committee, filling the vacancy left by former Beijing party boss Chen Xitong. Chen was purged from the Beijing leadership last April and later removed from the Politburo for his role in covering up a corruption scandal involving vice-mayor Wan Baosen. Most members of the committee were removed and replaced by central Government officials who included Chen Tonghai, a rising star in the central Government. Chen was formerly the mayor of Ningbo City before his promotion to the State Planning Commission as vice-chairman last year. Construction Minister Hou Jie has also been made a member of the committee. There are only two 'survivors' from the old committee; General Office Director Xuan Xiangliu and Vice-mayor Zhang Baifa. While Beijing Mayor Li Qiyan is now made a member, newly-appointed vice-mayor Jin Renqing is not included. The committee, in charge of all major infrastructural development in Beijing, is now firmly in the hands of the central Government, analysts said. Speaking at a committee meeting yesterday, Mr Luo, known to be a protege of premier Li Peng, reminded cadres they should adhere closely to the instructions on Beijing's future given by Communist Party boss Jiang Zemin recently. He said they should maintain strict control over luxury apartment building, and instead make Beijing a city which better served central leadership such as the party and the Army. According to Xinhua (the New China News Agency), the committee also reviewed the once controversial Oriental Plaza project but the report did not give any details. The project was reportedly bogged down due to corruption claims involving senior Beijing government leaders. Meanwhile, the Beijing Daily yesterday reported Mayor Li and Vice-Mayor Jin had paid a visit to the troubled Capital Iron and Steel Company on Thursday. The two mayors also told the factory workers that they should study Mr Jiang's recent speech closely. Mayor Li reportedly said that the city government fully supported the steel firm. The steel company, once hailed as a model enterprise in Beijing City, was not visited by Mr Jiang when he paid a three-day high profile inspection tour of the capital last week. Its former boss Zhou Guanwu and his son Zhou Beifang appear to have fallen out of central leaders' favour. The latter has been under investigation for alleged 'economic crimes' for almost a year and has yet to be formally charged or released.
