CPC highlights case studies of Party-people relations

BEIJING, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- Every year, dozens of delegations make "pilgrimages" to an urban community of 120,000 people from all walks of life in central China's Wuhan City. They are looking to understand the remarkable sense of harmony achieved by Baibuting.

The recipe, residents say, is active and responsive Communist Party of China (CPC) organizations. Through Party groups set up in every apartment building, a Baibuting invention, some 6,200 CPC members listen to and help out residents, building a trusting relationship that enables the community to solve neighborhood issues and ensure a safe, enjoyable living environment.

When the CPC opens its 18th national congress on Nov. 8, enhancing its relationship with the people will be an important goal driving policy decisions. With a task to realize prosperity for China, the CPC will continue to count on the support of the nation's 1.3-billion-strong population.

Lessons on how to guarantee that support are readily available in Baibuting's success story, while there are plenty of cautionary tales from elsewhere.

In recent years, some Party officials have turned a blind eye to the interests of the people and used the office for personal gains, leading to grave public grievances and even conflicts between citizens and government.

Last year, Wukan, an obscure village in south China's Guangdong Province, grabbed international headlines when its residents staged three waves of large-scale rallies in four months to protest officials' illegal land grabs, corruption and violations of financing and election rules.

One year after disgruntled residents staged a mass rally, progress has been evident in the village's self-governance. Order was restored after a senior provincial official held talks with villagers in December, and election of a new village committee was held earlier this year.
