TÂY NINH — The Traditional Resistance Club of the Party Committee of the People – Government – Party Bloc of the former Central Bureau for Southern Việt Nam last Saturday  hosted a ceremony that recognised a military base in Tây Ninh Province as a national historic site.

Attending the event were former President Nguyễn Minh Triết, standing deputy secretary of the Tây Ninh Provincial Party Committee Nguyễn Minh Tân, and former officials who worked at the base.

Nguyễn Văn Khởi, representative of the club, said that during the American war, the Party Committee of the People – Government – Party Bloc was instructed by the former Central Bureau for Southern Việt Nam to take charge of ideological leadership and build the party’s organisation.

In 1968, the Party Committee of the People – Government – Party Bloc encouraged officials and locals to join forces with Southern Việt Nam in the Mậu Thân Spring 1968 Uprising.

In April 1968, the central bureau separated the Party Committee of the People – Government – Party Bloc from the base for a new task, assigning Huỳnh Thanh Mua to be secretary of the Party Committee.

The committee contributed its part to the historic Hồ Chí Minh Campaign, leading to the liberation of the South and the unification of the country on April 30, 1975.

It was disbanded in April, 1977 by the central bureau after Việt Nam’s liberation and completion of its appointed tasks.

The Traditional Resistance Club of the Party Committee of the People – Government – Party Bloc of the former Central Bureau for Southern Việt Nam collaborated with the Sài Gòn Construction Corporation to build a relic house at the base, to mark its significant contributions and to pay tribute to more than 10,000 officials from 24 government organisations and 2,000 martyrs. — VNS
