HÀ NỘI — A delegation of the Party Committee, People’s Council, People’s Committee and Fatherland Front Committee of Hà Nội on Wednesday paid a floral tribute to Vladimir Ilyich Lenin at his statue on Điện Biên Phủ Street to mark his 150th birthday.
The delegation was led by Politburo member Vương Đình Huệ, Secretary of the municipal Party Committee and head of Hà Nội’s delegation of National Assembly deputies.
The officials recalled Lenin’s great contributions to the global revolutionary cause and expressed their determination to continue his ideology and revolutionary path, as well as Marxism-Leninism and Hồ Chí Minh ideology to build a beautiful, wealthy and civilised Hà Nội, contributing to the proletarian revolutionary cause.
This is an annual activity to commemorate Lenin, one of the most eminent political figures and revolutionary thinkers of the 20th century.
Lenin masterminded the Bolshevik take-over of power in Russia in 1917. He was the architect and first leader of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republic. He was also a great teacher of workers worldwide. — VNS
