Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday called for effective measures to prevent the ongoing campaign that aims to improve work style of officials from turning into “half-cooked rice.”
The campaign should not be reduced to a mere formality or conducted in a perfunctory way, Xi told Lankao County officials in central China's Henan Province.
“Fighting formalism with formalism will have negative effects,” he said. “Healthy work styles are created through fostering resistance to disease and dispelling pathogenic influences.”
The President urged adherence to firm communist beliefs and promotion of officials who do their work in an earnest, rather than superficial way.
The achievements already made during the campaign show that harmful work styles can be recognized and straightened out, despite their varied forms and complicated causes, Xi said.
