Tang Renjian, minister of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, is undergoing disciplinary review and supervisory investigation, the country's top anti-graft watchdogs announced on Saturday.

The Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the National Commission of Supervision, the nation's top watchdogs, said in a statement that Tang is suspected of seriously violating Party disciplines and national laws.

Born in 1962 in Chongqing, Tang joined the Party in 1991.

He has served as vice-chairman of the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, deputy director of the Office of the Central Leading Group for Financial and Economic Affairs in Beijing, and deputy Party chief, acting governor and governor of Northwest China's Gansu province.

He became minister of agriculture and rural affairs at the end of 2020.

Following the CCDI and NCS's statement, the Party leadership group of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs held a meeting to convey the watchdogs' decision to place Tang under investigation. All attending members unanimously expressed their resolute support for the decision.

Party organizations, members and cadres at all levels under the administration of the ministry were urged to consider the announcement as a warning to those engaging in improper behavior. They were also asked to establish a correct view of power, achievements and work, and always exercise power impartially, lawfully, for the people and with integrity.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs' official website shows that on May 15, Tang attended and spoke at a national rural talent work conference in Xianyang, Shaanxi province.

Last month, the 20th CPC Central Committee launched its third round of routine disciplinary inspections covering 34 departments and State-owned companies, including the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs. An inspection team was stationed at the ministry and is expected to complete its work by July.
