The spirit of Jiao Yulu December 2, 2020

The spirit of Jiao Yulu

Jiao Yulu (1922-1964) was a model official of the CPC. He was assigned to work in Lankao, Henan Province, in 1962 as the county's Party secretary. Over a period of two years, Jiao led the whole county in a campaign to combat sandstorms and water logging, thereby improving the unproductive saline-alkaline soil. He died of cancer in May 1964. He is honored as a "model county Party secretary," a "good official of the Party," and a "good servant of the people."

The spirit displayed by Jiao Yulu was exemplified by his love for the people, a perpetual sense of his mission to serve the people wholeheartedly, his frugality, his tenacious struggle with nature, his down-to-earth and active approach, his refusal to flinch in the face of difficulty, his honesty, and his relentless exertion on behalf of the people and the Party.
