Nguyen Van Khoi, a representative of the liaison board, said during the war against the U.S., the Central Bureau for South Vietnam, led by the Party Central Committee to steer revolutionary activities in the south, assigned the Party committees at its civil, political and Party agencies to be in charge of Party building work.
In the spring of 1968, the Party committees called on all Party members and locals to join people and soldiers across the south to wage the General Offensive and Uprising to attack the U.S. puppet government’s headquarters in Saigon, forcing the U.S. to join the Paris conference for peace in Vietnam and then withdraw from southern Vietnam in 1973.
Under the leadership of the Central Bureau for South Vietnam, the Party committees at its civil, political and Party agencies directed preparations for the Ho Chi Minh Campaign, helping liberate the south and reunify the nation on April 30th, 1975.
In April 1977, the Party Committees were dissolved as they had fulfilled their tasks, Khoi noted.
In 2014, the resistance tradition club’s liaison board built a centre in commemoration of the Party Committees. The centre is dedicated to more than 10,000 Party members and soldiers of 24 boards and sectors of the central bureau, along with more than 2,000 soldiers who died in the area./.
