During his inspection tour from March 19th to 20th, Yu Quan, Secretary of the Central Committee of the CCP Central Committee and Minister of the United Front Work Department, said, “The CCP must maintain its leadership when working with the religious people in China.”
According to Yu, it is necessary to guide religious people to interpret religious teachings in accordance with the requirements of the laws and regulations. [Local governments] must lead the religions in China with socialist values and make sure religions are in line with the socialist society.
Yu further stated that grassroots CCP organizations must effectively improve their ability to do a good job in religious work, increase their manpower working with religious people, and unite religious people around the CCP.
