The family of General Nguyen Chi Thanh on December 30 presented four statues of the late General to central Thua Thien-Hue province’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism on the occasion of his 100th birthday anniversary.

Thanh, whose real name was Nguyen Vinh, was born in 1914 in Quang Tho commune, Quang Dien district, Thua Thien Hue province. He took the post of Director of the General Department of Politics of the Vietnam People’s Army in 1950 and was brevetted General in 1959.

During his 30 years in the revolutionary activities, he established himself as a talented leader with undaunted fighting spirit, making significant contributions to the glorious victory of the Party’s revolution cause.

Speaking at the ceremony, Secretary of Quang Dien district’s Party Committee Nguyen Quang Vinh said that the presentation of the four statues is a meaningful act which will help people, particularly the young, further promote the locality’s heroic tradition and follow General Thanh’s example.

On this occasion, the provincial Party Committee, People’s Council, People’s Committee and Fatherland Front offered incense and flowers to General Thanh at his statue in Sia town, Quang Dien district.-VNA
