Liang Wenyong, the party chief of Guzishan town, Hebei province was removed from his position after belittling the civilians of the town during a lavish banquet, Shanghai Daily reports.
A video was shot at a famous restaurant where Zhang Taiming, director of the Banbishan County Taxation Bureau, was holding a private banquet. The video was later uploaded onto the internet.
Liang was seen enjoying high-priced lobsters, premium cigarettes and distilled spirits that cost thousands.
“With bowls of rice in hand and meat in their mouths, they (citizens) still abuse you with dirty words,” said Liang in the video.
“Citizens now show only such disgusting and shameful manners. We can’t show respect to them because they have no sense of shame,” he continued.
After the government of Xinglong County investigated the video and confirmed its authenticity, both Liang and Zhang were dismissed from their positions.
