A formal meeting was held on April 10 to celebrate the 100th birthday of the late General Secretary of the Vietnamese Communist Party Ha Huy Tap (April, 24, 1906 - April, 24, 2006).
Speaking at the ceremony, Politburo member and Permanent Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee Phan Dien said that the late General Secretary of the Vietnamese Communist Party Ha Huy Tap is a shining example of great loyalty, a person who devoted himself to the revolutionary movement of the country.
One of his most valuable contributions is the leadership in reviving the Party in the 1934-1935 period and the 1937-1938 period.
They were two crucial stages when the political party system was under brutal repression by the French colonialists and many patriotic leaders were detained and sentenced to death.
The late General Secretary’s deep sense of patriotic duty empowered him, in the setback, to find an appropriate political solution to recover the leading role of the Party, making it even more powerful than it was.
He did try hard to further improve the Marxism-Leninism and keep the right track of the Party in the struggle for freedom and independence.
“Glory forever belongs to the soldiers and the people, who have sacrificed their life, their youth for the growth of the Party and the affluence of the nation. Vietnamese people and the Communist Party will remember the late General Secretary Ha Huy Tap with gratitude for the contribution he made,” Mr. Phan Dien said.
On behalf of the people of Ha Tinh, home to Mr. Ha Huy Tap, Provincial Secretariat Tran Dinh Ban pledged solidarity in the development of the province in the North Central Coast of Vietnam.
Another formal meeting and a ceremony will be hosted in Ha Tinh Province on April 23 and 24 to commemorate the 100th birthday of the late General Secretary.
Also attending the meeting were General Secretary Nong Duc Manh, former General Secretary Do Muoi, former General Secretary Le Kha Phieu, former State President Le Duc Anh, President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Pham The Duyet, other officials and residents from Ha Noi.
