A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Thursday called on all Party officials to remain down to earth and be devoted to the people.

Liu Yunshan, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made his remarks while a group of people were chosen to be examples of upstanding citizens.

Gao Derong, the first of the role model delegation to be named, was the former chief of Drung-Nu Autonomous County of Gongshan, in southwest China's Yunnan Province.

During his tenure, Gao was devoted to local development and poverty alleviation, and his efforts garnered the sincere approval of residents.

Liu said that Gao was not only a role model for the Drung ethnic minority, but also for all CPC officials. He urged all Party officials to follow Gao's lead by being loyal to the CPC and serving the people.

"Gao's deeds reflect President Xi Jinping's spirit of serving the people and he passed on this positive energy," Liu said.

To truly be an honest and upright official, cadres should fulfill their duties and responsibilities, and cultivate the right understanding of power, Liu said.

After Liu's visit to the delegation, Gao and other role models gave speeches at a seminar on their own stories. The seminar was attended by more than 700 delegates from all walks of life.

There are around 6,900 people in China that identify themselves as Drung, making it one of the smallest ethnic minorities in China.
