An Exploration on Deng Xiaoping’s Thought of Close Ties With the People During His Administration in Southwest China

Guanghui WU


From November 1949 to July 1952, Deng Xiaoping presided over Southwest China as the first secretary of the Southwest Bureau of CPC Central Committee. During this period, he proposed the judgment that “close ties with the people is the life of our party”, stressing that close ties with the people must establish a Marxist view of people and uphold the party’s fundamental purpose; adhere to realize, safeguard and develop the interests of the people; play the roles of people’s congress, people’s organization, party newspapers and journals to tie with the masses; reform the bad style and tendency of being isolated from the people by rectification. These ideas are Deng Xiaoping’s preliminary summary of CPC’s ruling law during his administration in Southwest China, and have an important reference for doing the party’s mass work in the new situation.
