College's high-profile military parade scolded

A military training in which a school leader stands in an open-roof limousine to review the formation made up of students has come under criticism recently, reported Dade Daily.

With more than 6,000 freshmen standing in formation at the sports ground, Shi Xiu, president of Anhui Xinhua University, inspected the students "troops" from an Audi limousine. The parade resembles the National Day military parade of China.

PLA Daily, the media outlet for the Chinese People's Liberation Army, criticized the parade on its official microblog, saying: "Military training is aimed at raising students' awareness of national defense and honing their character. It is not supposed to become a public stunt."
