BEIJING - As the nation observes the 110th anniversary of the birth of Deng Xiaoping, one newspaper called for the people to champion Deng's resolute attitude when fighting corruption.

People's Daily, the flagship newspaper of the Communist Party of China, ran a commentary on Thursday saying Deng attached great importance on fighting corruption throughout the course of China's reform and opening up.

Deng warned the country and Party will "change face" if corruption is not stopped, adding the current leadership of CPC is now carrying out Deng's insight on fighting corruption, the commentary asserted.

There is never an end to reform, as with the anti-corruption campaign, the paper said. Thirty years after the opening up and reform, groundbreaking changes have taken place in China, but corruption continues.

"We must have a zero tolerance attitude for corruption, and have the courage to confront the toughness in fighting corruption, " said the commentary.

It said that people's full support in anti-corruption campaign is the Party's guarantee in winning this war.
