|Senior Chinese official stresses supervision of reconstruction in quake-hit Yushu|
YUSHU, Qinghai, Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese leader He Guoqiang has ordered enhanced efforts in the supervision of reconstruction in quake-hit Yushu in northwestern Qinghai Province.
He, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks Tuesday when he visited quake-affected people and reconstruction workers in Yushu.
Head of the country's disciplinary and supervision work, He said the authority found no major violations in carrying out the central government's decisions and management of relief funds and materials.
However, central and local disciplinary and supervision bodies should step up inspection and supervision of the implementation of central government policies, and the management of reconstruction funds and materials, he said.
He vowed to "strictly deal with" those who violated the rules so as to ensure the success of the reconstruction.
The 7.1-magnitude quake struck Yushu on April 14, killing more than 2,200 people and flattening thousands of homes.
He visited workers building a power generation project and schools, as well as villages and settlement centers for quake-affected people.
He asked the local government to provide enough daily necessities for quake-affected people to ensure a safe winter.
