News from the Communist Party Nepal-Maoist at their conference

Meet victory against revisionism: Baidhya
January 15, 2013 by BJ Murphy
Seventh national convention of the CPN-Maoist concluded by forming a 51-member central committee today. The CC will be led by Mohan Baidhya to steer the people’s revolt on the foundation formed by the people’s war.
The convention decided to elect existing 43 out of 46-strong central committee in the new 51-member committee, as three refused to take up the responsibility citing differences in the new party line adopted by the convention. The closed session was disrupted for around two days after the leadership failed to take decision on the structure and the strength of the central committee. The next central committee meeting will select remaining eight central members.
Three popular central committee members refusing to remain in the central committee are Krishna Dhoj Khadka, former chairman of the party’s student wing, his wife and popular women leader of the party Rekha Sharma and Kumar Dahal.
Khadka said the three leaders have been discussing with the top leaders regarding their differences and will make their views public within a few days if necessary. The convention also decided to continue with the existing office bearers and spokesperson and the invited central committee members Mousam Limbu and Laxman Panta are now full-fledged central members.
Addressing the closing session of the convention Chairman Mohan Baidhya said the unity convention of all the proletariats has become victorious in its fight against the revisionism. On behalf of the martyrs’ families Takma KC said the party has again resurrected the revolution, and has also warned the leaders not to let the people down.
Chairman of the advisors board Krishna Das Shrestha said Marxists and revisionism cannot remain at one place and therefore split was inevitable and has praised the leaders for adopting a revolutionary party line.

The ongoing general convention of the CPN-Maoist has unanimously endorsed the political line of launching ‘people’s revolt’ by stepping on the foundation laid by the decade long ‘people’s war’ as proposed by party chairman Mohan Baidya, on Sunday.
The political line endorsed by the general convention holds significance because the UCPN (Maoist) party was split over the dispute on whether or not to adopt people’s revolt as party line. While Baidya-led group insisted on the line of revolt, factions led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Baburam Bhattarai lobbied for ‘peace and constitution’ as party line.
“The party will put all its efforts to launch people’s revolt in the country,” central committee member Om Prakash Pun, told Republica while informing that political document of Chairman Baidya and party’s statute presented by secretary Dev Gurung were endorsed unanimously.
After reporting by team leaders of various 21 groups, party office bearers had addressed the floor on Sunday. Chairman Baidya summarized the reports and suggestions before his political document was endorsed unanimously.
While stating that the circumstance in the given situation will decide whether to go for armed struggle or not, the convention has decided to take two-pronged policy of armed and unarmed struggle to realize the party’s goals. Maoist leaders said people’s revolt will be built on the foundation of the people’s war through armed struggle to complete the new democratic revolution in Nepal.
The leaders of all the teams had demanded a clear roadmap for revolution. Party cadres during their group discussions and also during their reporting had asked the party leadership to make them clear whether the party’s main policy was “people’s war” or “people’s revolt”. While some cadres argued that people´s war should be their main policy, the others stood for “people’s revolt”.
The floor also concluded that the party would try to launch “people’s revolt” as the reactionary forces including UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress and CPN-UML are facing crisis during this transition period. “We will try to launch people’s revolt as the reactionary forces are in serious crisis now,” said a leader.
According to leaders, time now is ripe for launching people’s revolt as the parliamentary parties due to their failure to hold CA election or promulgate a new constitution are facing serious crisis. “Once the reactionary forces bring out a new constitution, we will reject the constitution and go for people’s war,” said a leader.
