Premier Li Keqiang on Monday paid a visit to Banzigou, an impoverished village in Guyuan, Ningxia Hui autonomous region, and promised more efforts to resettle the poverty-stricken villagers.
After more than an hour of bumpy ride on rugged mountain road, Premier Li first arrived at Wang Qi's family. The 70-year-old Wang, who is bedridden due to paralysis, depends on minimum living allowance.
Premier Li asked him about the reimbursement of his medical bills and urged local government to guarantee the timely distribution of the allowance.
