Lei Feng (1940-1962) was a soldier of the people's liberation army of China.
He is portrayed as a model citizen a symbol of selflessness, modesty and devotion to Mao.
Back in 2006 I had never heard about comrade Lei Feng.
Apparently Lei Feng was put forward to improve Mao's image after the great leap forward.
It seems that there is a modern campain about Lei Feng these last years. Lei Feng is once again shown as a model to follow. In Changsha I have seen Lei Feng picture on many billboards bus stop or in front of administrations.
In 2011, Wancheng county became a district of Changsha. And the city can extend north, while the city can extend south toward Zhuzhou and Xiangtan the hometown of Mao Zetong.
