UCPN (M) strayed from communist ideal: Chand
NAWALPARASI, MAR 05 – CPN-Maoist Secretary Netra Bikram Chand has
said the party cannot give up the values and agenda of the people’s war.
Addressing a press conference organised by federation of revolutionary
journalists here in Parasi on Wednesday, the CPN leader rubbished the
rumour of unification with the UCPN (Maoist) as the latter has been
entrapped in the quicksand of parliamentary system and would never be
able to get out of it.
Chand arrived here in Bardaghat of the district to felicitate the
families of those martyred and disappeared during the people’s war. The
CPN-Maoist leader remarked that all the communist parties are one in
terms of ideology and that his party is ready to take up any kind of
step in order to fulfill the commitment of the people’s war. “We are not
talking about armed revolt,” said leader Chand. “But our party is ready
to launch any kind of struggle in view of the situation and there won’t
be any kind of limitation.” He claimed that the agreements signed
between the then seven parties and the Maoists had been violated time
and again. There should be an all-side roundtable conference to give an
outlet to the nation, he added.
Saying that his party’s current struggle is from the table, the
CPN-Maoist leader said, “We won’t back track even if we have to stage
armed revolt.” He went on to say that the main obstacle to the
unification with the UCPN (Maoist) was the party leaders’ steep fall
from moral and political grounds. “The Maoist revolt had grossly
perverted by the time it arrived in Kathmandu from Rolpa,” said leader
Chand, “It is not possible to unite with the party that has strayed from
the Maoist ideology.”
He claimed that the UCPN (Maoist) did not have the principle and
working policy to liberate the people. He warned that the CPN-Maoist
party would go before the people if the parties tried to sideline it in
the name of majority system. He lashed out at Prime Minister Sushil
Koirala for his remark that Tanakpur lies is India.
