Liang Weifa, director-general of Guangdong provincial department of public security, also promised to fight gang crimes to ensure a stable social environment for local residents.

Zheng Fenming, director of the Scientific Development and Public Policy Center at the Guangdong Provincial Academy of Social Sciences, said the provincial-level government has properly handled the dispute.

"The provincial government departments refused to use high-handed measures to deal with the case. Instead, they sent work groups to the village to discuss the incident with villagers to seek a solution to the problem," Zheng told China Daily on Tuesday.

The government has handled the case in an open and fair manner under the framework of the law, Zheng said.

"Government departments should take a stand for the villagers and protect their legal interests when they requisition their houses and farmland for industrial and property development, so as to prevent such mass demonstrations from taking place," he added.
