XI'AN, April 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese senior official Liu Yunshan has called for better Party building and political education in local communities during his research tour in northwest China's Shaanxi Province.
Liu, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, visited villages, companies and colleges in several cities in the province from April 22 to 25.
Party units at the community level are the closest to the people and directly serve them, therefore, they should be equipped with outstanding leaders to better perform duties and exert their roles of fortresses and pioneering models, said Liu.
Liu stressed the principle of strictly governing the Party by championing the campaign of studying the Party code of conduct, studying the essence of President Xi Jinping's speeches, and becoming qualified Party members.
While visiting veteran Party members and those relocated as part of poverty reduction projects, he asked local authorities to promote economic and social development and pull more people out of poverty while improving Party building and conducting the education campaign.
More outstanding cadres should be sent to the poor areas for poverty relief and a stable leadership system should be ensured before the task is accomplished, said Liu.
