Ni Ping, a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, has denied media reports that she would remain silent during the conference.

Instead, the former hostess of China Central Television said on March 5 that she had prepared three proposals.

"I just said I would keep silent to that specific reporter," Ni said. "I've given many interviews and I hope to give other people a chance.

"I did not explain my points clearly on that occasion. The reporter misinterpreted my words as saying that I would keep my mouth shut during the whole conference."

Ni continued: "My first proposal is about the culture industry and its effects on society."

Secondly, she said she cared deeply about children who are left behind in their hometowns by parents who go to cities to make a living as migrant workers.

"Although the left-behind children may not have a shortage of material supplies, such as clothes and food, they are in need of spiritual care from their parents. Many children in rural areas don't have good manners and behave rudely, but their parents should also be blamed," she said.

"My third proposal is about protection of cultural heritage not included in the protection list. A lot of heritage is not listed because it does not meet requirements during the application procedure, not because it is unimportant."
