Top official urges rigorous ‘mass-line’ campaign, Xinhua says

A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) called for rigorous inspection on the “mass-line” campaign to improve the work styles of officials, Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday. Liu Yunshan, a Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, said principal officials should set an example by heading the campaign in each unit and straightening out their own behavior first, adding that extravagance such as giving gifts and enjoying banquets with public funds should be rigorously restricted. The one-year campaign was launched in June by the country’s top leaders to boost ties between CPC officials and the masses, while cleaning up undesirable work styles such as formalism, bureaucracy, hedonism and extravagance. The campaign includes various stages, including special sessions for officials to launch criticism of colleagues and themselves, rectification of problems, and inspection teams to supervise the results, the report said.
