HÀ NỘI — Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng told voters in the capital’s Tây Hồ District yesterday that strengthening the Party and fighting corruption and wastefulness is a key, long-term task.
Many resolutions adopted by the Party relate to Party building, but words must be accompanied by deeds in order to raise public trust, the Party chief said.

The resolution adopted at the fourth plenum of the 12th Party Central Committee mainly focuses on how to prevent the degradation in political thought, morals and lifestyle, self-evolution and self-transformation, he noted.

The most important job is to seriously observe discipline inside the Party, Trọng said, calling on the people, the National Assembly and organisations to engage in supervising Party building.

He reiterated that corruption is a national disaster and Party building must be coupled with combating corruption.

Voters shared the view that corruption and other bad deeds are lingering in many sectors and need to be dealt with constantly and drastically.

They suggested the legislature step up its supreme supervision over development investment and give due attention to sustainable development, environmental protection and poverty reduction in rural and ethnic minority-inhabited areas.

Many expressed their concerns over environmental pollution and violations of food safety regulations.

Regarding agricultural land reclamation, they called for policies to help farmers switch jobs and stabilise their lives.

In reply, Party General Secretary Trọng said such issues should be handled in a scientific and effective fashion.

At the meeting, Hà Nội voters were informed about plans for the second session of the 14th National Assembly scheduled to run from October 20 through November 23.

High on the agena will be law making and socio-economic issues, among others. — VNS
