Always Maintain the Flesh and Blood Relationship with the People

Posted on

People’s Daily editorial, 18 June

“The Party’s basis lies in the people, its blood vessels lie in the people and its strength lies in the people”, “the core issue in strengthening and improving the Party’s work style construction is maintaining the flesh-and-blood relationship of the Party with the popular masses.”

According to the deployment of the 18th Party Congress, the Party’s Mass Line Education and Practice Movement with serving the people, pragmatism and honesty as main content will be deeply launched in the entire Party. At the Party Mass Line Education and Practice Movement work conference convened by the Centre, General Secretary Xi Jinping stood on the height of our Party’s more than 90 years of glorious history and realizing the Chinese Dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese Nation,  deeply elaborated the profound significance of the Party’s Mass Line Education and Practice Movement, and pointed out the guiding ideology, objectives and requirements of launching this education and practice movement’. The thinking in the speech was profound, penetrating and incisive, it had a strong guiding nature and focused nature, it is an important speech to follow for our Party to persist in the mass line in a new era, and a scientific guidebook to do mass work well under new circumstances.

The Party style of a governing Party relates to the life and death of the Party and the country, the largest danger for a Marxist governing party is to become separated from the masses. In the last few years, from Party rectification to education about the “Three Stresses”, from maintaining the Communist Party members’ progressive education to deeply studying and practicing the scientific development view, our Party has given high regard to work style construction, and has consistently required strict administration of the Party. The Party’s Mass Line Education and Practice Movement is a major policy decision to persist in the fact that the Party must manage the Party, and to strictly administer the Party under new circumstances, it is a major deployment that conforms with the expectations of the masses and strengthens the construction of a study-type, service-type and innovation-type Marxist governing Part, and it is a major measure to move Socialism with Chinese characteristics forward.

Everything is for the sake of the masses, everything relies on the masses, come from the masses, go into to the masses, concentrate matters and persist in matters. This mass line is the lifeline and the basic work line of the Party. The popular masses once fed the Yan-an Revolutionary Base with millet, they used small carts to push towards victory in the Chinese Revolution, they opened up the process of reform and opening up with their fingerprints, only because the relationship with the popular masses has been maintained throughout, our undertaking has gained the support, participation and endorsement of the people, and has it been possible to defeat risks and trials rarely seen in the world, and gain magnificent achievements that attracted worldwide attention.

Today, we stand on a crucial historical node, and a completely new starting point for development. The struggle objective of the “two centuries” has promising prospects, the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation has a morning light of hope ahead. Global circumstances, national circumstances and Party circumstances have deeply changed, bringing severe trials facing the relationship of the Party and the masses, and the cadres and the masses. Within the Party, the phenomenon of separation from the masses exists in great numbers, these “four styles” of formalism, bureaucratism, hedonism and extravagance not only harm the image of the Party among the popular masses, they harm the Party-masses and cadre-masses relationship even more. In the face of unprecedented risks and challenges, persisting in the mass line and closely linking up with the masses are necessary requirements for realizing the struggle objectives determined by the 18th Party Congress, they are necessary requirements for maintaining the progressiveness and purity of the Party and consolidating the governing basis and governing basis of the Party, and are necessary requirements for resolving prominent issues to which the masses react strongly.

How is the Mass Line Education and Practice Movement to be launched? Closely grasp this main task of work style construction, and it ill be possible to take aim, look for the acupuncture point, grasp vital points, and collectively resolve the issues of the “four styles”. Earnestly implement the general requirement of “look in the mirror, wear correct hats and clothes, clean up things and treat illnesses”, and it will be possible to truly realize self-purification, self-perfection, self-innovation and self-improvement. In terms of attitude , we must launch criticism and self-criticism with a spirit of work style rectification, disregard prestige, truly move formidable obstacles and stir up spirits. In terms of measures, we must persist in leadership and pioneering, strive to raise our understanding a level, study a step more deeply advance our practice a touch, analyse and resolve prominent problems a notch better. In terms of methods, we must pay attention to establishing long-term mechanisms, formulating new rule systems and perfecting existing rule-systems, grasp this regularly and grasp it for the long term. Strictly avoid formalism, achieve “no falsehoods”; resolve prominent problems, achieve “no holes”; persist in revolving around the purpose, achieve (no bias), truly aim at the tender spot, hit the mark, and only then can this movement gain actual effects and gain long-term effects.

“For trees to grow, its roots must be stable. For streams to flow, their source must be dredged”. Since the 18th Party Congress, the Party Centre with Xi Jinping as General Secretary has powerfully proposed work style improvements, closely linked up with the masses, practiced what they preach, taken the lead in being good examples, and have established a model for the Party’s Mass Line Education and Practice Movement. Now, the Centre has again made a complete deployment of this movement, the first batch of education and practice activities have begun, tasks are arduous, responsibilities are great, and the comrades in the entire Party and especially all levels’ leading cadres absolutely must deeply comprehend, vigorously participate and firmly move matters forward, bring the people together with a fine work style, be kindred spirits with the people, share joy and sorrow with the people, struggle  in unity with the people, and assemble overwhelming forces to realize the Chinese Dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

 

人民日报6月19日社论:始终保持与人民的血肉联系

“党的根基在人民、血脉在人民、力量在人民”,“加强和改进党的作风建设,核心问题是保持党同人民群众的血肉联系”。

按照党的十八大部署,以为民务实清廉为主要内容的党的群众路线教育实践活动,即将在全党深入展开。在中央召开的党的群众路线教育实践活动工作会议上,习近平总书记站在我们党90多年光辉历史和实现中华民族伟大复兴中国梦的高度,深刻阐释了党的群众路线教育实践活动的深远意义,指明了开展这一教育实践活动的指导思想与目标要求。讲话思想深邃、鞭辟入里,有很强的指导性和针对性,是我们党在新时期坚持群众路线的重要遵循,是新形势下做好群众工作的科学指南。

执政党的党风关系党和国家生死存亡,马克思主义执政党的最大危险就是脱离群众。这些年来,从整党到“三讲”教育,从保持共产党员先进性教育到深入学习实践科学发展观活动,我们党高度重视作风建设、一贯要求从严治党。党的群众路线教育实践活动,正是我们党在新形势下坚持党要管党、从严治党的重大决策,是顺应群众期盼、加强学习型服务型创新型马克思主义执政党建设的重大部署,是推进中国特色社会主义的重大举措。

一切为了群众、一切依靠群众,从群众中来、到群众中去,集中起来、坚持下去。这样的群众路线,是党的生命线和根本工作路线。人民群众曾经用小米哺育延安革命根据地、用小车推出中国革命的胜利、用手印开启改革开放的进程,正是因为始终保持与人民群众血肉联系,我们的事业才赢得了人民的支持、参与和拥戴,才能够战胜世所罕见的风险考验,取得举世瞩目的伟大成就。

今天,我们站在关键的历史节点、全新的发展起点。“两个100年”的奋斗目标前景可期,民族复兴的中国梦曙光在前。世情国情党情的深刻变化,让党群干群关系面临新的严峻考验。党内脱离群众的现象还大量存在,形式主义、官僚主义、享乐主义和奢靡之风这“四风”,不仅损害了党在人民群众中的形象,更损害了党群干群关系。面对前所未有的风险和挑战,坚持群众路线、密切联系群众,是实现党的十八大确定的奋斗目标的必然要求,是保持党的先进性和纯洁性、巩固党的执政基础和执政地位的必然要求,是解决群众反映强烈的突出问题的必然要求。

如何开展群众路线教育实践活动?牢牢把握作风建设这个主要任务,才能对准焦距、找准穴位、抓住要害,集中解决“四风”问题。认真贯彻“照镜子、正衣冠、洗洗澡、治治病”的总要求,才能真正实现自我净化、自我完善、自我革新、自我提高。在态度上,要以整风精神开展批评和自我批评,抛开面子、动真碰硬、触动灵魂。在步骤上,要坚持领导带头,力争认识高一层、学习深一步、实践先一着、剖析解决突出问题好一筹。在方法上,要注重建立长效机制,制定新的制度、完善已有制度,经常抓、长期抓。力戒形式主义,做到“不虚”;解决突出问题,做到“不空”;紧紧围绕主旨,做到“不偏”,真正击中痛处、打在点上,这一活动才能取得实效、获得长效。

“求木之长,必固其根。欲流之远,必浚其源”。十八大以来,以习近平同志为总书记的党中央力倡改进作风、密切联系群众,身体力行,率先垂范,为开展党的群众路线教育实践活动树立了榜样。现在,中央又对这项活动做出了全面部署,第一批教育实践活动就要开始了,任务艰巨、责任重大,全党同志特别是各级领导干部一定要深刻领会、积极参与、扎实推进,以优良作风把人民紧紧凝聚在一起,与人民心心相印、与人民同甘共苦、与人民团结奋斗,为实现中华民族伟大复兴的中国梦汇聚起磅礴力量。(新华网北京6月18日电)
