Why the sudden rumor about Xi Jinping?

In China, this week two former ministers were sentenced to death and four officials were sentenced to life imprisonment. According to reports, the ministers and officials who were sentenced were part of a political faction. Currently, the Communist Party is running an anti-corruption campaign across the country and it is believed that these six people were Jinping’s opponents. The news of Jinping’s detention is believed to have been initiated and spread by the anti-Jinping lobby.

Jinping had recently attended the SCO summit
