Hundreds of descendants of China's revolutionary leaders voiced their support Tuesday of President Xi Jinping's comprehensive anti-corruption and reform campaign in a gathering in Beijing ahead of Spring Festival.

About 1,000 children and grandchildren of the founding fathers of the People's Republic of China gathered at the Beijing Bayi Film Studio,, a website has been promoting red tourism, said. Other attendants included Geng Dai, the grandson of late Vice Premier Geng Biao, Xu Wenhui, the daughter of Xu Haidong who is one of the ten senior generals appointed in 1955, and Deng Huaisheng, the son of Deng Zihui, the former head of rural work department in the 1950s.

Hu Muying, the daughter of Hu Qiaomu, who served as a secretary to Chairman Mao Zedong, delivered a speech praising the work of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.

Hu called on the descendants to contribute to rooting out corruption under Xi's leadership in 2015. Hu said that they were concerned that the CPC would deteriorate and follow the path of the former Soviet Union. But Xi's strategy is inspiring.

It is not the first time the offspring of People's Republic of China founders gathered. Similar gatherings were also held in the last two years.

Xi has strengthened management of the Party, the military and the government in the past year, deepened reform in the government, economy, the judiciary, culture and environment, and made headway in the sweeping anti-corruption campaign, Hu said. Those were achievements that were unattainable for years, Hu noted, adding that they are a response to public clamor.
