Chinanews.com, Beijing, April 26 (Reporter Xia Bin) For Chinese people, the Spring Festival is a wonderful time for reunion, lively and joyous celebrations. For Communist Party members, especially leading cadres, the Spring Festival is also an important time to test their style.
On February 16, 1950, on New Year’s Eve, when the people in Beijing were busy buying new year goods and preparing to welcome the first Chinese New Year after the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Chen Yun, Vice Premier of the State Council and Director of the Central Finance and Economic Commission, was still in his office for a meeting to convene some ministers. Researching financial work, the working atmosphere is very enthusiastic.
New China has just been established. It is to develop on the basis of one poor and two whites. Many things and problems are complicated. There are especially many new economic issues. Even on New Year's Eve, Chen Yun, who presides over the country’s fiscal and economic work, insisted on working overtime with the ministers. .
At the end of the meeting, Chen Yun said to everyone: "Tomorrow is the first day of the Lunar New Year. I suggest that you don't pay New Year's greetings during the Spring Festival. I will not pay you New Year's greetings, nor will you pay me New Year's greetings, and do not worship each other."
So what should I do during the Spring Festival holiday?
Chen Yun also gave his own advice: "Everyone stay at home, make a cup of tea, sit on the sofa, close your eyes and think about what you have done in the past year, what has been done right, and what has been done. It’s not right or not completely right. What are the lessons? It’s easy to summarize. I also think about a few things next year and how to do it.”
Chen Yun suggested that the ministers "don't pay New Year's greetings" have a strong sense of the times. On the one hand, New China has just been established and the financial and economic problems are facing many difficulties. Under the Kuomintang government for more than ten years, hyperinflation and soaring prices need to be rectified; on the other hand, New China China’s first Spring Festival must have a new atmosphere. We must pay close attention to the party's style and government style, and resolutely put an end to the phenomenon of waste and corruption in the old society and the old government during the Spring Festival.
In fact, on December 30, 1949, Premier Zhou Enlai presided over the thirteenth political affairs meeting of the State Council, and discussed and passed regulations on the prohibition of banquets, gifts and mutual greetings for government officials at all levels during the New Year and Spring Festival.
Nowadays, the material living conditions of the Chinese have greatly improved. For the majority of party members and cadres, honesty and integrity depends more on the festival and the year.
Many of the work style issues of some party members and cadres begin with the "humane exchanges" and "hospitality" that are difficult to deal with during the holidays.
Individuals regarded the Spring Festival as an opportunity to build relationships, and regarded the "New Year Pass" as a "storage pass", and the "Lian Pass" was lost at the "New Year Pass."
Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party Central Committee has been steadfastly pursuing the righteousness and discipline. It will give party members and cadres every new year. At the same time, it has also promoted the new trend of pragmatism, frugality and civilization in the whole society.
"The beginning of extravagance, the gradual danger." General Secretary Xi Jinping once pointed out, "The farther the unhealthy wind is from us, the closer the masses will be."
The issue of party style has a bearing on the party’s survival, and the issue of style must be dealt with with the strictest standards and strictest measures.
