PURGES IN SECURITY APPARATUS INDICATE XI JINPING FACES RESISTANCE’
The months till the 20th Party Congress scheduled for late next year are fraught with risk for China and its neighbours. It is a particularly crucial year for Chinese President Xi Jinping, who is trying to secure a third term, unprecedented since Mao Zedong, at the 20th Party Congress. At the same time there are signsof enhanced political activity, albeit subterranean, which suggest that Xi Jinping's opponents are also active,thereby raising the stakes.

XI JINPING’S NEW SLOGAN OF COMMON PROSPERITY IS WORRYING PEOPLE
‘Common Prosperity’ has become the new buzzword in the People's Republic of China since August 2021. The term provokes varying emotions ranging from fear and apprehension to a sense that the government is finally addressing the rising Gini coefficient and reining in the private entrepreneurs who have become multi-billionaires. Chinese President Xi Jinping, who mentioned common prosperity in a speech on August 17, definitely had in mind the steadily widening income disparities, the growing urban-rural income divide and the concentration of enormous wealth in the hands of just a small handful of people. While his announcement will have been welcomed by ordinary Chinese people, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) cadres particularly will wait to see the details of the policy and whether it heralds a return to the harsh and devastating Cultural Revolution decade.

IMPLICATIONS OF RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN PLA’S WESTERN THEATRE COMMAND
The Western Theatre Command (WTC) is the largest of China’s five Theatre Commands and exercises operational jurisdiction over the country’s currently ‘active’ borders with India and Afghanistan. Particularly since the People’s Liberation Army (PLA)’s military manoeuvre against India in early May 2020, which caught the Indian armed forces by surprise, and consequent onset of military tension along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the Chinese leadership has been paying special attention to the Western Theatre Command (WTC). It has raised its inter-se grading among Theatre Commands and brought the WTC on par with the Eastern Theatre Command, which is ranked first, in terms of priority for receiving new aircraft and weaponry. Other visible indicators of the leadership’s attention are the high-level visits; postings of new officers to the Western Theatre Command; the enhanced and qualitatively different exercises by PLA forces deployed in the Xinjiang and Tibet Military Regions subordinate to the Western Theatre Command; and the new, modern equipment that is now being supplied to them.

CHINA’S COMMUNIST PARTY CELEBRATES ITS CENTENARY – WHAT NEXT?
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s centenary celebrations were extensively covered in the Chinese media. Xi Jinping, who holds China’s three top positions of CCP General Secretary, Chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) and Chinese President, delivered an important speech on the occasion on July 1, 2021. His speech provided a few pointers about future plans including an indication that he intends to remain in power. His speech affirmed that the Party will adhere to the prescription Xi Jinping gave in 2017: “the party, government, military, civilian and academic, east, west, south, north and center, the party leads everything”.
