Beichuan Government Spend Millions On Luxury Cars

Fauna from the blog chinaSMACK reports on the netizen reaction to the government’s purchase of SUVs with earthquake donation money.

Have you donated money for the earthquake yet? Are Beichuan’s disaster victims all going to to get through winter with warmth? These we have no way of knowing, but what we know is that Beichuan’s “civil servants” and “official bosses” are doing very well, already starting to purchase luxury cars. And the they do not want just average cars! Truly, they are in power for the people! I am in admiration, true admiration! [sarcasm]

After the exposure of Beichuan’s dark secret, Mianyang Purchasing Network [the website/company that handled the government’s purchase of cars] secretly deleted specific details of the transactions [the purchase prices], but unfortunately it was already too late as angry netizens already disseminated the original details, with excerpts below:

“Beichuan’s go-vern-ment purchased one Toyota Land Cruiser, the most expensive V8 configuration, price 1.1 million RMB (the lowest version is only 700,000+ RMB, but a six cylinder is not impressive). I discovered a wide variety of brands and models amongst the disaster area purchased vehicle, but with almost every model, relatively higher-end versions wer chose. For example, a Toyota Prado was purchased with a navigation system. The earthquake must have ruined the disaster area’s geography so much that the leaders no longer remember the roads.”
