Hung Yen (VNA) – Voters in the northern province of Hung Yen have called on the State to pay more attention to agriculture and rural areas, improve the enforcement of policies towards veteran revolutionaries and toughen measures against environment pollution.

They raised the issues during a meeting in early December with the province’s delegation of National Assembly deputies, while expressing their satisfaction with the outcomes of the recently-closed NA session.

Constituents from An Thi district asked the Transport Ministry to accelerate work on approach roads running through the district to the Hanoi – Hai Phong highway, repair drainages and local roads damaged during the highway’s construction, and crack down on the discharge of untreated waste water into Cuu An river by factories in Pho Noi industrial park.

Residents in Tien Lu and Phu Cu districts appealed for the State support for farmers in restructuring crops and animal breeding, build large-scale model rice fields, ensuring farm produce consumption, and upgrading irrigational works.

They said poor communes need assistance in building new-style rural areas and proper policies are needed in support of female workers and officers at the grassroots level.

At the same time, constituents from Khoai Chau and Kim Dong districts suggested building research centres for plant varieties, better managing farming materials while providing more care for the poor, the elderly and those who rendered service to the nation.

The NA deputies pledged to submit the recommendations and feedbacks to the NA, the government, ministries and agencies concerned for consideration.-VNA
