BEIJING - Anti-decadence momentum is building in China, with more than 800 wayward officials busted in April, according to the top disciplinary agency of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

These officials were involved in 719 breaches of anti-decadence rules, including feasts and tours supported by public fund, use of public cars, disobeying workplace rules and holding extravagant wedding ceremonies or funerals, according to the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) on Tuesday.

A new section on the CCDI website this month invited the public to report cases of corruption and malpractice. Holidays, such as the upcoming three-day Workers Day holiday, are critical, said senior CCDI official Xu Chuanzhi, adding that misbehavior in now more covert.

Xu noted that some officials are now feasting in homes and private clubs to avoid being seen and have resorted to covert online financing platforms and digital gift cards.

Prior to the holiday, various disciplinary organs issued circulars to step up inspections of officials' potential wrongdoings.
