A song entitled Party Members Playing a Leading Role in the Fight against Poverty Alleviation has become a hit amongst the public in southwest China's Guizhou Province over recent days.

Written by Feng Shuguang, a retiree from Guizhou Women's Federation, the song vividly illustrates the images of six model members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) from the southwestern province in the eyes of the public, and gives high praise to them for their remarkable contributions and sacrifices in heading local poverty-stricken residents on a path to economic prosperity in the past.

The six model CPC members are Deng Yingxiang, party chief of Mahuai Village in Moyang Township in Luodian County; Yang Bo, party chief of Hai'ga Village in Zhongshan District in Liupanshui City; Pan Xuejun, deputy-director of Horticultural Science Department of the School of Agriculture at Guizhou University; Liu Shanxue, former party chief of Jiuchao Village in Jiuchao Township in Liping County; Tao Zhengxue, party chief of Niangniangshanlian Village of Pugu Township in Pan County; Jiang Shikun, former secretary of Qinglong County Committee of the CPC.

A brief introduction of their representative stories:

Deng, a rural woman, has led villagers in Mahuai Village to successfully carve a road out of the mountains against unimaginable difficulties. The newly constructed road, which took them 13 years to build, has helped residents there interact with the outside world. In recognition of her remarkable deeds, Deng was conferred with the title of National March 8th Red-Banner Pacesetter by the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) at an awards ceremony held in Beijing on February 28, 2014. Earlier in October 2013, she was presented with another award and greeted by Vice Chinese Premier Wang Yang in Beijing for her efforts to lead residents at her village in the construction of the mountainous road.

Yang, an official from a local government department, has dedicated himself to helping local residents in Hai'ga Village become rich through the plantation of potatoes over a span of six years. Normally, a dispatched official or CPC member from higher governmental bodies just stays at a village or in a region for two years. However, Yang refused to transfer to another place and vowed to keep his initial promises to villagers there. Right now, thanks to his efforts, local residents have successfully improved their lives and applied for a patent for their self-produced potatoes.

Pan has provided mountainous villagers with scientific and professional guidance in the plantation of walnuts for years. So far, more than 8 million mu (533,333 hectare) of land has been planted with high-production walnut trees. Meanwhile, local residents have seen great improvements in their lives.

Liu had served as party chief of Jiuchao Village for nine years before he sacrificed his life to rescue others in the face of natural floods this June. During his lifetime, Liu received a collection of titles and awards for his sound performance in heading local villagers on their path to economic prosperity and social harmony.

Tao has engaged himself in leading his fellow villagers to open businesses and provided them with access to economic prosperity, since he quit his successful venture and returned to his hometown several years ago.

Jiang Shikun, former secretary of Qinglong County Committee of the CPC  [Guizhou Women's Federation]


Under Jiang's leadership, a total 2,878 officials from government departments in Qinglong County have been stationed at economically underdeveloped villages across the entire region and led local residents to embark on a path to economic prosperity in past years. However, Jiang lost his life to a heart attack when he was on an official tour in south China's Guangdong Province this April.

Guizhou Daily published the song in recognition of their model stories on August 6, which further popularized their positive influence amongst the public.
