Campaign to follow Uncle Ho’s moral life

QĐND – Saturday, November 27, 2010, 21:42 (GMT+7)

The “Study and follow Ho Chi Minh’s moral example” campaign has made great impacts on society and gained important initial outcomes, said Party General Secretary Nong Duc Manh.

The Party Chief, who is also the Head of the Central Steering Committee for the campaign, made the affirmation at the committee’s meeting in Hanoi on Nov. 26.

According to Manh, the campaign has continuously created clearer and stronger changes in work styles of Party members and State officials and raised their sense of following the late President’s example in the field.

The campaign has also helped drive back degradation in political ideology, ethics and lifestyle of Party members, State employees and the entire society, said the Party Chief.

He emphasised that the campaign had contributed significantly to the country’s accomplishment of socio-economic tasks as well as to building the Party purely and strongly and organising the party committee congresses at all levels successfully to prepare for the Party’s XIth National Congress.

Steering Committee members agreed that after four years of implementation, the campaign had become an important facet of all operations of the Party, the administration, and mass organisation at all levels, and made positive changes in awareness in Party members and people.

They also underlined the need to create a high level of consensus in the Party and the entire political system, firstly with those who hold key positions in all branches at all levels, on the significance, importance, goals, requirements, content and responsibility regarding the implementation of the drive.

In addition, they said the content of the campaign must be specific and combined closely with political tasks in each period and stressed the necessity to step up the spread of information on Uncle Ho’s moral example and outstanding individuals in the campaign.
