Zhao Leji, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC), has asked for stronger and special inspections in order to provide solid guarantees of winning the battle against poverty.
Zhao, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and head of the central leading group on disciplinary inspection, made the remarks at a mobilizing meeting during the 19th CPC Central Committee’s second round of disciplinary inspections, which laid out the plans for special inspections of poverty alleviation efforts.
Carrying out such inspections is a crucial approach to implementing the CPC Central Committee’s three-year plan on winning the battle against poverty, and requires a high sense of responsibility and mission, so as to make sure the policies on poverty relief are properly implemented and the poor are lifted out of poverty, Zhao said.
He noted that the inspections focus on the political responsibilities of Party organizations in poverty alleviation, and should stay “special” by centering on the subject of inspections, their purposes and major tasks.
The inspections should target the “significant minority,” referring to the most impoverished groups, and try to discover the general and direction problems in poverty alleviation to give full play to their unique role, Zhao continued.
He also warned against formalism and bureaucracy, and called on the special inspections to be linked with regular inspections and administrations of local disciplinary inspection commissions, as well as with the work of related sections in poverty relief and other forms of inspection.
