Can Tho (VNA) – President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee Tran Thanh Man met constituents in Thot Not district in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on November 22 following the sixth session of the 14th National Assembly.

Man said that in recent years, especially during 2017-2018, voters’ suggestions have been sent to the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Ministers, and ministers to deal with issues of concern.

He asked district authorities to strictly follow residential planning in the third stage so that local residents do not find themselves living in highly polluted areas.

Regarding anti-corruption measures, Man said a number of the cases have recently been dealt with in the spirit of “no restricted zones”.

Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong, head of the Party Central Committee’s Steering Committee on Corruption Prevention and Control, assigned the VFF Central Committee and its all-level chapters to actively call on the public to bring to light any corrupt behaviour they have witnessed, the official said.

Discussing the cracks found in the Vam Cong bridge, which was built in September 2013 and had its final segments joined last year, Man said Transport Minister Nguyen Van The promised with the legislature that the bridge will soon be open to traffic, sometime before the Lunar New Year celebrations in early 2019.

He also urged localities to seriously punish forest destroyers and deal with illegal sand mining.

Constituents raised their concerns over pollution around industrial zones, compensation for unreasonably reclaimed land, fake and poor quality goods, and illegal sand exploitation.

They called for measures to improve the quality of education and prevent high-ranking officials from engaging in corruption and legal violations. –VNA
