NDO – A delegation of Hanoi leaders headed by Politburo member and Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Hoang Trung Hai offered incense at the relic site at House No.90, Tho Nhuom Street, on May 1, as part of the activities to celebrate the 115th birth anniversary of Tran Phu, the first General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam.

House No.90 – Tho Nhuom Street, where the first Party General Secretary Tran Phu wrote a political thesis.

Hanoi city’s leaders expressed their gratitude to the late General Secretary, who was an excellent student of President Ho Chi Minh and a staunch advocate of the international communist and workers’ movement.

On the same day, many agencies, organisations, party members and people also offered incense to commemorate late Party General Secretary Tran Phu at the relic site of House No.90, Tho Nhuom Street.

Tran Phu, whose father was a patriotic Confucian scholar, was born into a poor family on May 1, 1904, in Phu Yen province.

Joining revolutionary activities at an early age, he was elected to the provisional Central Committee in July 1930 and was assigned with compiling the Party’s political programme.

At the first plenum of the Central Committee, Tran Phu was elected General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam in October 1930.

On April 19, 1931, he was arrested by French colonialists and brutally tortured. He died several months later at the age of 27, leaving his comrades and the people with a deep sense of admiration and sympathy.

His revolutionary career was short but he left a large legacy to the Party and nation.
