WPK Turned into Motherly Party by Kim Jong Il
Pyongyang, June 20 (KCNA) -- General secretary Kim Jong Il in his lifetime had worked hard to develop the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) into a motherly party faithfully serving the people.

He set it as the starting point of party activity to serve the popular masses when he began his work at the WPK Central Committee.

He always said that the WPK should bear responsibility for the popular masses' destiny and take good care of it as a mother does for her child.

With absolute trust, he rallied all the servicepersons and civilians around the WPK, bringing about epoch-making changes in the revolution and construction.

He set forth such slogans based on love for the people as "Let us build new society with trust and love!" and "We serve the people!"

Early in March Juche 95 (2006) when visiting the Samsu Power Station under construction, he took a state measure to build dwelling houses for the inhabitants residing in the area possibly to be flooded due to the construction, stressing that it is the WPK's policy and mass line to take care of the people's life.

One day when an official in charge of a province failed to provide labor conditions for workers, Kim Jong Il called a meeting of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee over this matter, seeing to it that officials concerned apologized to the workers.

When a girl residing in the west coastal area was drifting on a piece of ice in the sea, Kim Jong Il took a nationwide measure to rescue her.

His warm love made the people harden their firm will to share destiny with their leader and devotedly work to carry the WPK's plans into practice.

The WPK is now creditably discharging its mission and duty as motherly party under the guidance of respected Marshal Kim Jong Un carrying forward Kim Jong Il's noble intention.
