This year, the Korean people are faced with the challenging task of recovery from successive natural disasters along with the anti-epidemic work in the current world health crisis.
To cope with the emergency, the Workers’ Party of Korea decided to celebrate its 75th founding anniversary as a genuine holiday of the people and a revolutionary holiday cementing single-hearted unity by stabilizing the life of the disaster victims as early as possible and sprucing up the afflicted areas and roused all its members and other working people to the rehabilitation campaign.
True to the Party’s call, more than 10 000 Party members in Pyongyang and many People’s Army units rushed to the stricken areas to wage a 24-7 struggle. As a result, Kangbuk-ri in Kumchon County, North Hwanghae Province, recently turned into a model village of socialist rural community.
What is the source of strength of the DPRK which is capable of carrying on such gigantic reconstruction projects simultaneously in different parts of the country even though everything is in short supply?
A close scrutiny of the course the WPK followed will give you the answer to the question.
The country was in a very difficult condition in the late 1950s.
Steel was essential for shoring up the economy disrupted by the war and improving the people’s living conditions that deteriorated due to the war. The workers in Kangson created a miracle of producing 120 000 tons of billets by means of a blooming mill with a rated annual capacity of 60 000 tons in hearty response to the Party’s appeal for producing 10 000 tons of more steel to relieve the economic stress on the country.
Korean workers manufactured tractors, lorries, ships and electric locomotives afterwards and a 10 000-ton press in the 1980s.
The Korean working class manufactured all these products of self-reliance true to the WPK’s line of building an independent national economy.
They could make them from scratch as they had absolute trust in the Party’s lines and policies and the faith that they would surely emerge victorious when they do as dictated by the Party.
With such trust and faith, the Korean people rounded off the Arduous March and laid the eternal foundations for building a powerful socialist country.
At present the WPK remarkably strengthens the driving force of the revolution by maintaining the people-first idea as its supreme principle, thereby fully demonstrating the might of single-hearted unity.
This unity is just the source of invincible might of the DPRK that remains unperturbed in the raging wind of history.
As lightning is followed by thunder, the people always respond to the Party’s call and brave and overcome all manner of trials and hardships rallying closely behind the Party. The might of this single-hearted unity is fully being displayed in the sites of the ongoing rehabilitation campaign.
Single-hearted unity is a great feature of the DPRK and a treasured sword for victory.
The might of the unity is ever growing in the campaign to recover from damage and celebrate the WPK’s 75th birthday and Eighth Congress significantly and will serve as a reliable springboard guaranteeing fresh victories and a powerful propellant in the future.
