Recently, the Water Resource Bureau in Hukou county, Jiangxi Province, announced an emergency collection of knitting bags, sparking controversy among communities. Many Chinese netizens have denounced the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s lack of funding on domestic relief efforts and question what the authorities do with the tax money they collect from their own people. Due to the continuous rainfall, the water levels of the middle and downstreams of Yangtze River, Dongting Lake, Poyang Lake, and Lake Tai are rising constantly. Flood controls in these areas are critical.
