Today, we are present here on a historical occasion, May Day, with good news. The good news is that the Revolutionary Communist Party of Nepal has been formed amid negotiations and meetings between the Communist Party of Nepal (Revolutionary Maoist) and the Communist Party of Nepal (Bahumat), and the transformation that took place through debates within the Party Unity Coordination Committee. This 134th May Day bears a special significance in Nepal today. The liberation of the workers and the oppressed classes is impossible without a communist party which is built from persons equipped with the supreme consciousness of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism as their vanguard. Moreover, no movement or revolution can be accomplished without a unified communist party assimilated by that insight. While it has been severely affected by the unity-struggle-split, there are a few examples of Unity-struggle-transformation in the Nepalese Communist Movement. On the occasion of this great festivity, we pledge to make the process of unity-struggle-transformation prevail in the party.
Defending the originality of MLM, we have to develop it in agreement with space, time, and situation. In this context, we must grasp the synthesis reached by Lenin, "Marxism is not a lifeless dogma, not a completed, ready-made, immutable doctrine, but a living guide to action, that it was bound to reflect the astonishingly abrupt change in the conditions of social life. "This unity of ours is based on the principle of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism. Regarding party unity and party building, Lenin instructed us, "If you must unite, Marx wrote to the party leaders, then enter into agreements to satisfy the practical aims of the movement, but do not allow any bargaining over principles, do not make theoretical “concessions”. This was Marx’s idea.”
We fully agree with the objective of accomplishing the revolution while remaining steadfast to the synthesis Lenin had reached, and we are committed to not making any compromises and not giving 'discounts' on the questions of principle like Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, the revolutionary line – the general program of the new democracy and the basic program of scientific socialism and communism – the use of force in revolution, proletarian internationalism, the organizational theory of democratic centralism, the establishment of the Federal People's Republic of Nepal, the great proletarian cultural revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat and end to the parliamentary system. We declare that the unity of this party has been attained after we achieved unanimity on these fundamental questions.
Protecting the originality of MLM, we have to develop it according to space, time, and situation. In this context, we must also grasp Lenin's synthesis, "Marxism is not a lifeless dogma, not a completed, ready-made, immutable doctrine, but a living guide to action, that it was bound to reflect the astonishingly abrupt change in the conditions of social life."
Guided by this conclusion of Lenin, we want to announce that we must develop Marxism to solve the present-day contradictions. Today, due to the development of science and technology, there have been sudden changes in the conditions of social life. MLM can develop only by contemplating these changes. In this context, Mao, the advocate of creative Marxism and the defender of the originality of Marxism has synthesized, "We must study Lenin and be courageous in hoisting the red flag, the redder the better. We must be courageous in advocating something new and establishing something different. There are two kinds of advocating something new and establishing something different: Hoisting the red flag is proper; hoisting the white flag is improper.”
Despite the space, time, and situation were different in China than those in Russia, Mao accomplished the revolution by advocating new things and establishing different things.
The Revolutionary Communist Party of Nepal is committed to implementing MLM according to the situation of Nepal, leading it to develop from this specific situation. In a country where the socio-economic condition is semi-colonial, semi-feudal, and mainly neo-colonial, the remnants of feudalism, bureaucratic and comprador capitalism, and mainly comprador capitalism is the main enemy, and workers, peasants, soldiers, and squatters, including the national bourgeoisie, are the friendly forces, the contradiction between the bureaucratic and comprador capitalist state power at one pole and the entire oppressed people at the other is the principal contradiction. Our party is committed to the fact that the solution to this contradiction is a scientific socialist system that can be reached through a new democratic revolution.
The problems of national independence, democracy, and people's livelihood have become severe in the country. With the agreements like MCC and SPP, the threat to national sovereignty has become terrible. By arresting political leaders and workers in false cases and imprisoning them, the problem of democracy has reached an extreme. The problems of people's livelihoods have skyrocketed due to the extreme usury of microfinance, excessive interest, and so-called cooperative organizations under the protection of banks. Instead of solving these problems, the state power, government, and related agencies are trying to oppress the agitators. Our party is committed to leading the struggle for the final solution to the problems of national independence, democracy, and people's livelihood.
On this occasion, we call on the confused revolutionaries of various parliamentary revisionist parties, scattered groups, and personalities to get polarized and integrated into this historic unity process. With this unity of ours, a powerful headquarters of the Nepalese revolution will be established, and revolution will be accomplished.
