A local government in Central China's Henan Province has asked its civil servants to address each other as comrade, as a way of strengthening political life within the Communist Party of China (CPC).

According to the reports, it comes in response to a 'worrying tendency' within the CPC to address Party leaders as "boss," reports the Henan Business Daily.

In a circular released on November 18, the Xinxiang government said that all of the civil servants in the city, regardless of their rank, should only be addressed as comrade in all documents and official meetings.

"The move will help curb paternalism and sectarianism that have spread within the Party during the last three decades since the reform and opening-up," Su Wei, a professor at the CPC Chongqing Municipal Committee Party School, told the Global Times on Wednesday.

Su added that the order is in keeping with political life today within the Party.

The Sixth Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee that took place from October 24 to 27 this year, urged Party members to improve the political ecology within the Party from the grass-roots up.

General Secretary of CPC Central Committee Xi Jinping advocated simple and clean interpersonal relationships within the Party at a group study session of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee in June, reports people.cn.

The report added that addressing each other as comrade will help promote equality and mutual trust among CPC members; and it will also help strengthen political life within the Party and set an example for purifying social conduct.
