Hanoi (VNA) – President Vo Van Thuong had a meeting with a delegation of 70 revolution contributors from the Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long in Hanoi on May 30.

The Vinh Long delegates include war invalids, those used to be imprisoned by enemies or affected by Agent Orange/dioxin, martyrs’ relatives, and families of revolution contributors.

Appreciating the Party, State, and society’s attention and assistance to revolution contributors nationwide, including those in Vinh Long, they said they have always stayed united and made efforts to improve their life, contribute to local and national development, and join hands with authorities in repatriating martyrs’ remains and building, upgrading monuments to martyrs.

They pledged to uphold revolutionary traditions, set good examples, and educate younger generations on the traditions so that Vinh Long will develop more strongly in the future.

Offering the best wishes to the Vinh Long delegates, President Thuong affirmed that the Party, State, and people always keep in mind the service rendered to the nation by martyrs, war invalids, and other revolution contributors.

He noted that generations of Vinh Long people laid down their lives or got injured during the two resistance wars and the fights to safeguard the Fatherland. The province is currently home to 16,000 martyrs, 4,500 war invalids, and nearly 3,000 Heroic Vietnamese Mothers.

The leader hailed the contributors’ efforts to overcome hardships and educate the young, expressing his hope that they will keep upholding their hometown’s traditions to further help with local and national development.

At the meeting, the President also spoke highly of the Vinh Long Party organisation, administration, and people’s solidarity and efforts to care for revolution contributors and disadvantaged people. He requested that the province maintain attention to this work, aside from economic development, to seriously and effectively implement the State’s policies for revolution contributors./.
