Editor's note:

Since 2013, General Secretary Xi Jinping has participated in the National People's Congress and the National People's Congress every year.

During the exchange, the people's livelihood often goes directly to the people's concerns; in the conversation, the words of true love make people feel warm.

  In 2022, the "National Two Sessions Time" is about to start. CCTV's "People's Leader Xi Jinping" column will launch a series of creative interactive special articles "Xi Jinping's Two Sessions Everyday Talks", to feel the love of the people's leaders for the people with you.

  "People first, life first."

  Looking back at the annual national event, people will never forget that Mengxia in 2020. The special meeting that was postponed for more than two months conveyed a message of solidarity and hard work to 1.4 billion people when they had overcome the disaster and restarted their lives. The powerful force of forging ahead.

  Due to the epidemic, the National People's Congress and the National People's Congress compressed the schedule, and the number of times each central leading comrade "departed from the group" also decreased.

The general secretary specially proposed that "the Hubei delegation must come."

  On the afternoon of May 24, 2020, in the East Hall of the Great Hall of the People, the warm applause continued for a long time. "The General Secretary is here to see us!" The Hubei Provincial National People's Congress deputies who had just emerged from the haze of the new crown pneumonia epidemic were very excited when they saw the General Secretary.

  At the deliberation site, Luo Jie, the secretary of the Party Committee and president of Taihe Hospital in Shiyan City, Hubei Province, who was sitting opposite the general secretary, recognized him as soon as he spoke.

  "I saw you on TV." "Are you Roger?" the general secretary asked.

  "Yes." Roger couldn't hide his excitement.

  The general secretary took over and said, "I know you. Your speech last time was very good and left a deep impression on me."

  In fact, this is not the first time that Roger has been "named" by the general secretary in public.

The General Secretary also mentioned Roger at the deliberation site of the Inner Mongolia delegation two days ago.

  After the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia, Luo Jie was ordered to serve as the leader of the Shiyan City treatment expert team, fighting day and night on the front line of the fight against the epidemic.

  On May 22, 2020, at the first "representative channel" of the third session of the 13th National People's Congress, Roger made his first appearance.

  From the decisive place in the fight against the epidemic to the palace of the people's participation in politics, Roger felt a lot of emotion in his heart.

Facing the reporter's "separate" questions, he told the story of a multi-person medical team trying their best to treat an 87-year-old patient with new coronary pneumonia.

  This story touched many people and was also remembered by the general secretary.

  "The representative told reporters that more than 3,000 patients with new coronary pneumonia over the age of 80 were treated in Hubei, and one of them, an 87-year-old old man, was carefully cared for by 10 medical staff around him for dozens of days, and finally saved the old man's life. "The general secretary recounted this touching story from the Inner Mongolia delegation.

On March 23, 2020, at Wuhan Tianhe Airport, medical staff from the First Hospital of Wuhan City, Hubei Province saw off the 14th batch of Guangdong medical aid teams to Hubei.

  The general secretary said emotionally: "What is the supremacy of the people? With so many people surrounding a patient, this truly reflects what it takes to pay at all costs."

  "No matter how old or sick we are, we will never give up."

  "As long as you are responsible for the lives of the people, you must bear the cost and the consequences."

  In the mind of the general secretary, people's lives are more important than Mount Tai.

  In the delegation from Inner Mongolia, the general secretary explained the profound connotation of the word "people" from the perspective of the party's ideals and beliefs, nature and purpose, and original mission.

He quoted an old saying: "The ancients said: 'Those who share the same interests with the world, the world maintains; those who are good at the interests of the world, the world seeks them.' Interests come first.”

  "Putting the interests of the masses first" is reflected in subtleties.

Another scene in the Hubei delegation also confirmed this.

  During the epidemic, Yu Cheng, a representative from Wuhan No. 2 Light Industry School, went to Wuhan Aijia International Community as a volunteer.

Participating in the 2020 National Two Sessions this time, she brought the heartfelt words of the people of Wuhan.

"General Secretary, when you visited Hubei, you said that the people of Wuhan like to eat live fish and should organize more supply. In less than a week, the live fish was delivered to our community. An uncle Liao, who is in his 80s, said excitedly, he didn't expect it. In such a serious epidemic, you can still eat fresh fish, thank the party and the government."

  The general secretary asked with concern: "How is the situation in the community, is there any infection?"

  Yu Cheng replied: "There was an infection but it was cured."


On May 24, 2020, Yu Cheng, deputy to the National People's Congress, participated in the deliberation of the Hubei delegation and delivered a speech.

  During the communication with the general secretary, Yu Cheng choked up several times. In order to thank the people of the whole country for their concern and support for Hubei, she got up and bowed several times.

  Cai Xueen, deputy to the National People's Congress and director of Hubei Dewei Junshang Law Firm, recalled that the general secretary was very concerned about the mental and material losses suffered by ordinary people during the epidemic and their living conditions after the unblocking of Wuhan.

  The general secretary expressed his concern about the "post-epidemic syndrome", and also mentioned the sacrifice of medical staff, the orderly burial of deceased people, and the collection of urns. Put people's lives and health in the most important position."

  Taking care of the family, asking questions, listening to the voices of the people, and explaining the opinions of the people, the general secretary interacted cordially with grassroots representatives at the National Two Sessions, and the voices were full of affection and concern.

  People first, this is the governing philosophy of General Secretary Nian Zizai, it is the mission of the Chinese Communists, and it is also the source of power for the whole country to defeat the epidemic.

  Embark on a new journey, facing unknown challenges, standing on the origin of "people first", upholding the belief forged in the battle against the "epidemic", and accumulating the inspiration tempered in the struggle, we will eventually be invincible.
