The rich from Ninh Binh, state-controlled Buddhist Church and Vietnam’s government partner in big deal

Giant Xuan Truong

The political fraction from Ninh Binh province on the surface is a political group led and built by late State President Tran Dai Quang. However, Mr. Quang did not stand alone, but behind him there are many people, from economic interests to political interests in Ninh Binh, which contain many puzzling mysteries.

In Ninh Binh, the billionair Xuan Truong, who specializes in building many super spiritual projects throughout the North, is the most suspicious force. The influence of this giant on the state Buddhist circles and the central political apparatus is quite high.

Bai Dinh Pagoda is a pagoda built for business purposes. It is not part of the Vietnamese Buddhist Church, however, festivals at Bai Dinh pagoda were drummed to open the seal by Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Truong Hoa Binh. It is easy to understand that the central leadership has done the task of advertising the temple for tourism business.

Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc beats the drum to open the festival for Bai Dinh pagoda

Regarding Tam Chuc pagoda, the People’s Committee of Ha Nam province again used the local budget to build technical infrastructure for this pagoda, specifically as a way for visitors to enter Tam Chuc tourist area. Tam Chuc tourist area is a tourist complex and the pagoda is a part of it. The investor of this area is a joint venture between the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha and billionair Xuan Truong.

Thus, if it is said that Bai Dinh Pagoda is a handshake between Xuan Truong and the government, there are 3 participants in Tam Chuc Pagoda. These are the Ha Nam provincial government, the Vietnamese Buddhist Church and Xuan Truong. Although they are two different projects, they both serve the same purpose to bring visitors to Tam Chuc Pagoda.

The question is, is Xuan Truong calling for the government and State Buddhism to cooperate, or is Xuan Truong just a formal party? Are there political forces behind it that have a stake? If there was no political power hidden behind Xuan Truong, then Xuan Truong could not mobilize government power and theocracy into his hands like that.

Xuan Truong influenced the central political forces and the local political forces in many northern provinces, while the political power of Ninh Binh also rose from the support of many northern localities from the Party Central Committee. If it is said that Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong seeks to strengthen himself with his trips to China, Mr. Tran Dai Quang seeks complete support in the country and mainly local forces. So is there any connection behind Ninh Binh’s political interest group with Ninh Binh’s economic interest group? Maybe yes.

Need to find out which political force is behind the giant projects

The inspection of the technical infrastructure project of the Tam Chuc pagoda tourist area showed that there are central forces who want to destroy the cauldron at Tam Chuc pagoda. In addition, at the Ministry of Public Security, Mr. To Lam wants to stay to keep the ministry under the control of Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong. As analyzed in the previous news, Mr. To Lam did not want the Ninh Binh forces at the Ministry of Public Security to have the opportunity to seize this ministry.

The political power of Ninh Binh once suffered a great loss, that was when Mr. Tran Dai Quang was infected with a strange virus and died. However, the economic powerhouse in Ninh Binh is still unharmed. Some people think that Xuan Truong’s business has a complicated political relationship, sometimes even broader than that of Mr. Tran Dai Quang’s family.

Xuan Truong’s business style will make money, because it attracts superstitious people, but the religious business market has been built by the Communist State for a long time. Temples such as Ba Vang Pagoda, Phuc Khanh Pagoda etc… have implemented and built the superstitious market many years ago. Now, the temple complex of Xuan Truong who jumps into exploitation will be very rich. It seems that other forces are also interested. And most likely, there are upcoming battles aimed at these lucrative spiritual resorts. (Translated)
