Alienation from people greatest risk for CPC
Alienation from the people poses the greatest risk to the Communist Party of China (CPC) after it has gained political power, Hu Jintao, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said Friday.
"Therefore, we must always place the people's interests before everything else," Hu said.
All Party members should protect the people's economic, political, cultural and social rights and interests in accordance with the law, he said.
Party and government offices at all levels and their officials should stay close with the people and address their concerns, Hu said.
CPC must adhere to, improve socialism with Chinese characteristics
"The path of socialism with Chinese characteristics is the only way for China to achieve socialist modernization and create decent lives for its people," President Hu Jintao said at the grand gathering marking the 90th founding anniversary of the CPC.
The CPC must hold high the banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics, keep to and expand the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, uphold and enrich the system of theories of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and adhere to and improve the socialist system with Chinese characteristics, he said.
