North Korean media warns officials against “obsolete” attitudes, fame-seeking

Some party cadres working "just enough not to be scolded," Rodong Sinmun complains

North Korea's party daily on Tuesday warned government officials against prioritizing personal glory over the needs of the people, criticizing “obsolete" attitudes in the country’s economic planning sector.

The article appears to be part of a wider, ongoing propaganda effort by the Rodong Sinmun, following criticism of Cabinet officials for making "serious mistakes" at a high-profile parliamentary session in April.
