The delegation was led by Politburo member and Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Dinh Tien Dung. Members of the Party Central Committee: Permanent Deputy Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Nguyen Thi Tuyen, and Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Chu Ngoc Anh also joined the delegation.
The officials recalled Lenin’s great contributions to the global revolutionary cause and expressed their determination to continue both his ideology and revolutionary path, as well as spersevering with Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh thought to build a beautiful, wealthy and civilised Hanoi, contributing to the proletarian revolutionary cause.
This is an annual activity to commemorate Lenin, one of the most eminent political figures and revolutionary thinkers of the 20th century.
Lenin masterminded the Bolshevik take-over of power in Russia in 1917. He was the architect and first leader of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republic. He was also a great teacher of workers worldwide.
