Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong on August 29 went on a pilgrimage to the former revolutionary base of Tan Trao in Son Duong district, the northern mountainous province of Tuyen Quang, which was dubbed the capital of Vietnam’s revolution in the anti-French resistance war.

At the special national historical relic, the Party leader offered incense in memory of President Ho Chi Minh at the hut where the President lived from May to August 1945. It is from this simple jungle hut that he instructed preparations nationwide for the August Revolution, the success of which led to the birth of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam on September 2, 1945.

General Secretary Trong also visited the Tan Trao communal house, where a national congress was convened on August 18 and 19. The congress adopted an order to launch the general uprising and the 10 big policies of the Viet Minh, as well as elected a provisional government led by Ho Chi Minh.
