HA NOI (VNS)— On Saturday, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong met with voters in Ba Dinh and Hoan Kiem in Ha Noi and listened to their issues of concern.

Several people expressed doubts over the performance and attitudes of some State officials who are also Party members, and called for greater training and supervision, particularly for those working at grassroots levels.

Criticisms were also raised over the construction and operation of hydro-power plants in some parts of the country which have damaged thousands of hectares of forest and disrupted the lives and property of those living nearby due to poor or irresponsible administration.

The management of urban planning and construction also posed a problem, voters said, claiming that they had asked for illegal or damaged buildings to be dealt with on numerous occasions, but to no avail.

They also touched on education shortcomings, including the lack of pre-schools in contrast to the number of universities, many of which have with few students.

The Party chief said he hoped that voters would continue to provide feedback and ideas to the NA, Party and State in the future.— VNS
