BEIJING, March 5 (Xinhua) -- Amid China's microblog boom, a growing number of national lawmakers and political advisors have opened verified real-name microblogs to stay in touch with the country's estimated 260 million microbloggers.

Following are daily highlights from their microblogs, which are most active during the ongoing annual sessions of the National People's Congress (NPC), the top legislature, and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the top political advisory body.

----Li Dongsheng, an NPC deputy and the chairman of TCL Corp, posted this after the opening of the NPC session on Monday morning:

"I began to attend the Fifth Session of the 11th National People's Congress today. Premier Wen read the government report for one hour and fifty minutes in a robust voice, indicating his strong confidence in the economy."

----Sheng Lianxi, a political advisor and the Party secretary of Northeast Normal University, denied there are allowances for attending the session:

"There are no such things. To be honest, every political advisor is strictly self-disciplined. Two days ago, my child came to visit me [at the hotel accommodating political advisors] and paid 60 yuan for dinner. Then, my child said, 'This is what you eat?'"
