Chen Min'er, Party secretary of Chongqing, has pledged to resolutely make efforts to keep in line with the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and its general secretary.

Chen, secretary of CPC Chongqing Municipal Committee, made the vow on Thursday while elaborating on how to translate into actions the Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era unveiled by Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, in his report delivered at the opening session of the 19th CPC National Congress on Wednesday.

"We should unswervingly keep in line with the CPC Central Committee, with Xi Jinping as its core, in regard to thoughts, ideology and actions," Chen said.

To remain in line, it is very important to "thoroughly study and smartly use" the new era thought, Chen said in his address during the discussion among the Chongqing delegation, which was opened to the media during the National Congress.

Chen also called for "down-to-the-earth efforts" to boost the prosperity of Chongqing and to reinforce benefits to the public wellbeing in order to translate the new era thought into reality. He said efforts should be made to make local residents feel a stronger sense of gain, happier and safer.

When answering a media question, Chen also pledged efforts to "wipe out the pernicious influence" brought by Sun Zhengcai and Bo Xilai, both former Party chiefs of the CPC Chongqing Municipal Committee, as well as Wang Lijun, former police chief and vice-mayor.

Sun has been expelled from the Party and dismissed from public office for "serious discipline violations", according to the September meeting of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.

Chen noted the Party's strong determination in the anti-graft fight, which has been reflected in the report delivered by Xi on Wednesday.

Chongqing will further build up the discipline to wipe out such a "pernicious influence", Chen said.
