The ups and downs of the commoners 2 Volume 1 Juvenile also Know the Taste of Anxiety Chapter 22 Meetings are held in the township, when let the cadres oppose conservativeness, dispel superstition, and emancipate their minds, Wang Qihui and the agricultural cooperative members got up early and to the dark still in labor. They were busy for more than half a month, first collecting peas and wheat into the warehouse, and then planting corn and rice. Because they paid money to the agricultural cooperative before the Spring Festival, her family sold some corn, so had no grain to eat for many days. Catch sight of summer harvest crops have just matured, she is eagerly looking forward to distribute some grain early after the summer harvest, but day after day, there is no sign of grain distribution. She can only go to the vegetable field and pick some uncurled leaves the Cabbage for the family to eat. When the summer planting was almost over, the agricultural cooperative still did not distribute grain, she couldn't hold on any longer, so she hardened scalp to find team leader Fang Zhicheng and said, "The fourth uncle, in fact, our family has not seen grain for many days. We all live by eating Cabbage leaves. Seeing that the family can’t hold it anymore, can you ask the agricultural cooperative, and see if can distribute some grain to eat.” Fang Zhicheng replied: "Speaking of no grains, I’m afraid it’s not just your family. Our family has no grains for a day or two. I also heard from the members that there are no grains. I have seen President Zheng several times and told him reflect the lack of food for the members, they asked for the distribution of grain, but he said, "It has not been calculated and cannot distribute." You insist on two more days, let me ask him again to see what the result is." It happened that Zheng Ducai inspect the production that day and pass Linjia Bay. He saw the members of the agricultural cooperative planting corn in the Tallow tree field. Fang Zhicheng was carrying the dung into the field, so he stopped him: "Fang Zhicheng, come here." Fang Zhicheng heard Zheng Ducai call him, put down the dung bucket, slowly came to him, took out a rolled leaf cigarette from the cigarette case, planted it into the pipe, struck a match to light it, smoking while and looking at Zheng Ducai. Zheng Ducai asked, "How's your group's summer planting going?" Fang Zhicheng said calmly, "You've probably seen it all the way. All the rice seedlings in our group's water storage fields have been planted, and there are still seven or eight hundred square meters left dry field, and need rains can to plant. As for corn, there have still about half a hectare that has not been sown.” Zheng Ducai glanced at the members working in the fields and said, "You must hurry up. I took a look today. The fourth group has finished planting, and the other groups will finish planting within two days today and tomorrow." He then said in a critical tone: "Look at the members of your group, they just lack enthusiasm for work, and they all seem to have lost their souls. Like this, how long will it take to complete the planting task! I think your 'downstream' is determined!" Fang Zhicheng was not convinced, and said: "President Zheng, you only said that the members are not enthusiastic about their work, and they seem to lose their souls when doing farm work. You have not considered the actual situation of the members. I have told you many times that the members are out of grain at home, and you do not solve it. The members have no food and are hungry, so how can they have the strength to do farm work.” Zheng Ducai raised his eyebrows and shouted at Fang Zhicheng: "I said you, Fang Zhicheng, you shut up! Didn't I tell you a few days ago, 'I haven't figured out how many grains in the agricultural cooperatives there are, how many is paid for public grains, how much is paid for unified procurement by the government, apart from these, how many grains can be allocated for distribution, I have no idea, can’t divide it', why do you bring this up again? A few members deliberately clamored for lack of food, why do you follow them to say that there is a lack of food? I'm very busy, so I won't talk to you more. You go to work in the fields!" He said angrily and left. Fang Zhicheng held back his anger, took out the cigarette rod from his mouth with his right hand, slammed it on his left palm twice, shook off the soot, and walked towards his dung bucket with a flick of his hand. Fang Zhicheng carried the dung bucket and returned to the field. Seeing the members of the group, they were all complaining for him. Wang Qihui said: "Look at this President Zheng, he is full himself, how would he know that we are starving." Lin Rongting said: "What else has it not calculated? We planted a season of crops, and calculated by them left and right, it is impossible not to give us a grain of food. Even if they distribute a little grain to relieve our hunger, it is impossible to exceed the grain we should distribute." The Lin carpenter said: "The home of President Zheng has grain, so who cares if we have food or not?" . . . Fang Zhicheng thought to himself: This Zheng Ducai is too impersonal. On the one hand, he kept falsely reporting the output to the his superiors, obviously only 1 ton of wheat was produced per hectare, and he insisted that one hectare yielded 10 tons of wheat, so as to strive for more completion of the government's unified procurement of grains, and dedicated to seeking promotion; On the other hand, he desperately urged us to hurry up and do farm work, who cares about our life and death! "Just ask the horse to run fast, but don't let the horse graze", how can there be such a reason! We might as well distribute a little grain first and report to him then, so let him take it back from the grains that should be distributed to us later. He made up his mind alone and didn't say much.
