BEIJING, March 16 (Xinhua) -- The general office of China's Central Military Commission (CMC) on Friday made public a guideline on an educational campaign in the military.

The campaign focuses on inheriting the legacy of the Chinese military, and highlights the responsibilities of officers and soldiers of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) in their bid to build a strong military, according to the guideline.

The campaign should closely relate to the current situation, missions and requirements, underline the fundamental and comprehensive issues in the PLA's tasks, and carry out education on the major theories and realistic problems that concern officers and soldiers the most.

The guideline asks for a higher standard of education among the members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and officials of higher levels in the military, and calls for stronger action against problems in their thought, organization, and conduct.

It also asks for the crackdown on formalism and bureaucratism, and the elimination of the pernicious influence of Guo Boxiong and Xu Caihou, former CMC vice chairmen.

Moreover, the guideline suggests CPC members educate and guide the Communist Youth League members in the military into realizing their dreams, and taking on the responsibilities of building a strong military.
