|Officials urged to promote "mass line" campaign|
BEIJING, July 16 (Xinhua) -- China's top leadership has called on local officials to vigorously promote the "mass line" education campaign and apply it to boosting development and people's livelihoods.
"Officials should set an example by studying and bearing in mind the 'mass line' guideline, always seeing things from the perspective of the mass," said a Tuesday statement that summarized inspections made by seven members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee as part of the campaign.
"Mass line" refers to a guideline under which CPC officials and members are required to prioritize the interests of the people and persist in representing them and working on their behalf.
During the inspections, Chinese President Xi Jinping visited north China's Hebei Province between July 11 and 12, visiting local villages, communities, enterprises and government departments to listen to opinions and review local education campaigns.
Meanwhile, Premier Li Keqiang inspected south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and Zhang Dejiang, Yu Zhengsheng, Liu Yunshan, Wang Qishan and Zhang Gaoli respectively visited Jiangsu, Gansu, Zhejiang, Heilongjiang and Sichuan provinces.
