CPN-M finally opts for people’s revolt
Democracy and Class Struggle publishes this report from Nepali Media for information purposes,it is not an offical statement of CPN-M.We hope to publish offical statements shortly.
KATHMANDU: The ongoing seventh national convention of CPN-Maoist today endorsed Chairman Mohan Baidhya’s political document, which called for people’s revolt that would stand on the base of people’s war.
Clarifying how people’s revolt was possible when all the bases created by the People’s War had been destroyed, Baidhya said the human resources, their decade-long experiences and skills were sufficient to develop such bases.
Most of the leaders, involved in people’s war right from its inception, have defected from Unified CPN-Maoist, accusing UCPN-M Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Vice-chairman Baburam Bhattarai of being traitors to the Nepali revolution.
The convention also decided to expose Dahal and Bhattarai, terming them the greatest agents of expansionism and neo-colonialism.
The leaders said the party would focus on the movement for the country’s national independence by forming a broad alliance with leftists, republicans and patriotic forces.
The leaders also told participants that the possibility of people’s revolt would exist only when there are crises in the country. “If the country gets a new constitution or holds elections the crises will get some sort of solution and the possibility of revolt will end,” said Lekhnath Neupane, a senior party leader. Neupane added that the party will have to take the route of protracted people’s war if the possibility of revolt ceases to exist.
Baidhya’s document was passed with a minor correction in the proposed organisational structure. The convention refused to establish councils under major bodies of the party, including the central executive committee.
Sources said the party would initiate preparations for people’s revolt in a covert manner and later that would automatically be revealed.
The new central committee of the party to be elected tomorrow will draft plans and programmes of the party according to the line passed by the convention. The leaders told participants they would gradually establish people’s army, courts, base areas and people’s governments.
Yesterday, Ekraj Bhandari representing the Newa State Committee had demanded that the convention commit to fulfil the dreams of all the martyrs and disappeared people.
Bhandari’s son Bipin Bhandari, a popular student leader, had disappeared during the conflict.
The closed session, scheduled to conclude today, has been extended till tomorrow since discussions were delayed and the convention has not yet selected the central working committee.
