Chitan Village, Jinzixian Town, Anren County, is a poor village in Luoxiao Mountain area. Although it has a beautiful environment and is called "Little Guilin", it is economically backward and people's life is difficult due to traffic restrictions. After blowing the horn of targeted poverty alleviation, Liu Zhigang, the leader of the poverty alleviation team in the village of Hunan FOC, took root in the mountainous area, led the local poor people step by step, launched an attack against poverty, and won one victory after another. Today, Chitan has been lifted out of poverty.

Therefore, as the first secretary of the General Branch of the Party in Chitan Village, Liu Zhigang spared no effort to build the "two committees" of the village.

At the same time, Liu focused on infrastructure construction, with a focus on building roads. He told reporters that Chitan village is more than 70 kilometers away from the county seat, and the traffic problem has been the "heart" of the villagers for generations. In the past, people had to carry, carry and carry goods from home to town, it took half a day, so the harvest of crops, fruits, medicine and other difficult to cash.

The first thing the village poverty alleviation team did was to solicit villagers' opinions and suggestions on road construction. There are pros and cons, and more people are worried about where the money will come from.
