KATHMANDU, June 16: The
Central Committee meeting of the dissident faction of the UCPN(Maoist)
led by Senior Vice-chairman Mohan Baidya has endorsed a political
document that proposes revolt as its main political line and terms the
acceptance of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement one of the major
The 17-page document prepared by Baidya will be presented at the
national gathering of leaders and supporters of the faction starting
from Saturday in Kathmandu.
“The objective circumstances are favorable for revolution but we should
create the subjective circumstances for revolution,” the document reads.
Before presenting the paper at the central committee meeting of the
faction, Baidya told the meeting that the document is going to be the
document of a new party.
"We tried to rectify the party since the Kharipati meeting till the
Central Committee meeting in the wake of the Palungtar Plenum but we
were betrayed. This time we are not going to compromise," a leader
quoted Baidya as saying at the meeting.
The faction has concluded in its document that national and
international circumstances are also conducive for revolution. His
argument is that the "capitalist" parties like Nepali Congress and the
CPN-UML are in crisis and there is no possibility of revival of "old
forces" like the monarchy. Likewise, it has concluded that the
"capitalist and imperialist" countries are also in crisis.
In the document, Baidya has labeled Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal
and Vice-chairman Baburam Bhattarai as the main obstacles to an
immediate people´s revolt.
“The [national and international] situation is favorable for revolution
but there is no possibility of an immediate revolution because of Dahal
and Bhattarai who deviated from the revolutionary line,” the document
“Now, we should struggle against the rightist revisionists and capitalists, bureaucrats and compradors.”
In the document, Baidya has stated that it was a mistake to follow
Prachanda Path and termed the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) a
betrayal to the people, country and the revolution.
Similarly, the Chunbang meeting of the party, which adopted the line of
democratic republic, took the party toward a rightist revisionist line.
He has further stated in the document that the 12-point agreement signed
in 2005 and which paved the way for the April movement of 2006, was a
first attempt to abandon the Maoist revolution. This agreement rendered
the party closer to the capitalist political parties than to leftist
parties, according to Baidya´s document.
At the meeting, Standing Committee member Dev Gurung is going to present
the new party´s statute. As per the statute the national gathering
will decide the name of the party.
The statute has proposed two names -- Revolutionary Communist Party
Maoist or the Nepal Communist Party-Maoist (Revolutionary).
