Pyongyang, June 22 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun Wednesday dedicates a signed article to the 15th anniversary of President Kim Il Sung’s celebrated work “Let Us Thoroughly Implement the Theses on the Socialist Rural Question”.
Clarified in the work are realistic problems in successfully solving the rural question in the country including the matter of realizing overall irrigation, mechanization, electrification and extensive use of chemicals on a high level in all the rural areas by energetically stepping up the rural technical revolution, and drastically improving the living conditions of farmers so as to reduce distinctions between town and countryside.
The validity and vitality of the work have been patently proved in the practices for building the socialist countryside in the past, the article says, and goes on:
Leader Kim Jong Il set forth the policy of agricultural revolution to successfully carry into reality the President’s idea of rural building and has wisely led the work for its implementation.
The leadership of the Workers’ Party of Korea to implement the theses on the socialist rural question is revolutionary leadership to defend the immortal exploits performed by Kim Il Sung in the building of the socialist countryside and successfully realize his far-reaching plan and desire.
Under the tireless guidance of Kim Jong Il bringing the President’s lifelong wish into a brilliant reality, epoch-making changes have taken place for rezoning the land of the country as befits the land of socialist Korea and the Kaechon-Lake Thaesong Waterway, a unique Korean-style gravity-fed waterway, has been completed to solidify the foundation of agricultural production. The advantages of the socialist rural management system have been displayed and a broad avenue has opened to carry out the agricultural technical revolution on a higher stage in the course of the work to carry out the policy of agricultural revolution set forth by Kim Jong Il.
The WPK’s leadership in the implementation of the theses has been a wise leadership which has consolidated in every way the political and ideological position of the socialist countryside in our country by giving priority to the ideological revolution in the countryside and an inspiring banner effecting a radical turn in agricultural production and fully solving the food problem by the efforts of the home people itself.
