  Keep in mind the original mission and create a new development

  A hundred years of party history is a great course of courageous self-revolution——

  From the investigation and punishment of Xie Busheng in 1932, Ruijin sounded the "first shot" to punish corruption, to the execution of Liu Qingshan and Zhang Zishan after the founding of the People's Republic of China, the "First Anti-Corruption Case of the Republic", to the unprecedented efforts in the new era to uphold discipline and anti-corruption, and promote comprehensive Strictly governing the party...

Wherever the major decisions of the Party Central Committee are deployed, supervision and inspection will follow up.

  Keep the horn of anti-corruption steady

  "We must be soberly aware that the battle of corruption and anti-corruption is still going on fiercely and showing some new phased characteristics."

General Secretary Xi Jinping used four "heavy tasks and a long way to go" to deeply analyze the new stage characteristics of the anti-corruption struggle: "There is still a long way to go to prevent all kinds of interest groups from forming groups and 'hunting' to corrode, and it is still a long way to effectively deal with the invisible mutation of corrupt means, renovation and upgrading. There is still a long way to go to completely eradicate the breeding ground for corruption and to clear the Haiyan River, as well as to clean up systemic corruption and resolve hidden risks.

  Jiang Laiyong, secretary-general and researcher of the China Integrity Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, believes that the profound summary of the four "heavy tasks and a long way to go" shows that the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core has always maintained a strong sense of urgency and has always been concerned about corruption, the biggest risk to the Party's governance.

  In recent years, it is not uncommon for young cadres to violate discipline and law, and some "post-80s" and even "post-90s" cadres have failed to hold the line of defense against corruption and change.

  At this plenary meeting, when it comes to the education management and supervision of young cadres, General Secretary Xi Jinping said: "Young cadres must have a clear understanding, often check the party's theory, line, principles and policies, the party constitution, party rules and discipline, and the original mission. Clear up whether some things should be done or not, and keep the line of defense against corruption and change."

  "Whether young cadres can be honest and self-disciplined is directly related to the future of the party and the country." Jiang Laiyong said that it is necessary to uphold the concept of strict management is love, and guide young cadres to be loyal and honest to the party, strengthen their ideals and beliefs, and keep in mind their original mission and mission.
