NA Vice Chairman Phuong underlined that the Party and State always highly value the great sacrifice of generations of revolutionaries, dozens of thousands of whom were imprisoned by the enemies.
Even in the tough conditions in the “hell on earth,” the revolutionaries still maintained their patriotism and revolutionary spirit as well as the determination to liberate the nation, he underlined.
NA Vice Chairman Phuong affirmed that the former revolutionary prisoners are examples for younger generations.
He noted that many support policies for them have been issued and implemented. So far, 9.2 million people who rendered services to the nation have enjoyed support policies.
In order to complete the policies and regulations for revolution contributors, the NA Standing Committee has issued an ordinance regarding allowances to revolution contributors with many new features to match the country’s development.
The NA will also strengthen supervision over the implementation of policies, regulations, and mechanisms to assist people who render services to the nation, ensuring that they are realized in a systematic, consistent, timely, effective, and transparent manner, he said.
The Association of Quang Ngai's former revolutionary prisoners was set up in 2006, gathering war prisoners across the province. It has focused on coordinating with relevant agencies to ensure the implementation of support policies for former revolutionary prisoners, caring for the needy, and encouraging them to develop production and escape from poverty.
