CPC members should embrace 'plateau yak spirit'

BEIJING - Communist Party of China (CPC) members and officials have been urged to learn from the late Tibetan leader of a township in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

After 11 years of dedication and hard work as a grassroots official, Gyumey Dorje died of a stroke in May 2012 while serving as Khampa Tibetan chief of Wari Township in Sichuan's Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. He was 33.

"He was a model of the lofty spirit of the CPC's grassroots cadres," Yu Zhengsheng, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top political advisory body, Wednesday told a work team organized to promote Gyumey Dorje's spirit among Party members.

Yu urged CPC members to learn from Gyumey Dorje, who had been dedicated to solving practical problems to improve people's lives.

Gyumey Dorje had served in three townships in a remote mountainous area throughout his career as a grassroots cadre.

He helped locals fight poverty and build roads, agricultural irrigation channels and solar-powered water heaters. He also persuaded villagers to send their children to school, hoping to use education as a tool for alleviating poverty.

The realization of the "Chinese dream" of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation depends on the leadership of CPC members and officials, who should dedicate themselves to their work and serve the people wholeheartedly, Yu said.

"Development in ethnic minority-inhabited regions still lags far behind that of developed regions," the top political advisor said, calling on CPC members and officials to emulate Gyumey Dorje's "plateau yak" spirit and boost development in these areas.
