Hanoi (VNA) – Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong has underscored the need to trust in and take care of people in order to raise the efficiency of mass mobilisation, or civic duty work.

He delivered the message while addressing a conference of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Mass Mobilisation in Hanoi on May 27 to launch an action programme on the implementation of the 12th Party Congress’s Resolution and directions and conclusions on mass mobilisation issued by the Politburo and the Party Secretariat.

This viewpoint on civic duty has been proven to be true through the country’s long history, from feudal dynasties to the 30-year reform, as well as Marxism-Leninism, the Party chief noted.

Therefore, he said, it is a must for the Party to provide full care for people’s lives and interests, and respect their right to self-mastery while building a pure Party.

Although the Party and the State have exerted great efforts in improving people’s living standards, there still have been policies and actions that have failed to meet public aspirations, the Party leader admitted.

It is necessary to take specific measures to ensure people’s living standards, firstly ensuring their food, clothes, health care and education, he said, adding that social equality and security are also crucial.

He noted that respecting and upholding people’s right to self-mastery is the Party’s strategic guideline, and that public creativeness has been carried forward during the Party leadership.

The leader urged all-level Party Committees and State agencies to encourage people’s organisations to get involved in socio-economic management, and raise their staff’s awareness of serving the public.

Hailing contributions of the civic work to strengthening the national great unity bloc as well as socio-economic development, national security and defence and foreign affairs, the Party General Secretary pointed out that shortcomings and limitations still remain.

He explained that the actualisation of relevant resolutions, directions and conclusions has proven effective, but the work has yet to receive adequate attention of all-level Party Committees and authorities.

Addressing the event, Truong Thi Mai, head of the Mass Mobilisation Commission, said her commission has integrated the work into the effectuation of the 12th Party Congress’ Resolution.

The commission has also worked as advisor in revamping the Party leadership over mass mobilisation in the context of socialist oriented market economy and international integration, especially in areas inhabited by ethnic minority groups and in religion-related issues, she said.-VNA
