Recently, in onlinekhabar.com a Nepalese vernacular online news portal, Pambha Bhusal, spokesperson of CPN-Maoist, addressed Narendra Modi, the newly elected Prime Minister of India, as a 'Nationalist Leader'. It has produced a lot of confusion, debates and discussion within CPN-Maoist and also outside. Cadres of CPN-Maoist have demanded disciplinary action against Pambha Bhusal. They have demanded Pampha Bhusal immediate quit out from the spokesperson of the Party. Particularly the 'facebook' holders inside the party and outside have made Pampha Bhusal's pronouncement as a matter of fun . Someone has written that 'Pambha Bhusal must be awarded with 'Bharat Ratna' in the coming 15 August–'Indian Independence Day'. We can't say whether it is true or false, but it has come to know that after this statement, she has got invitation from 'South Block' to visit India.
We all know Narendra Modi is the leader of Bharatiya Janata party, a party which advocates Hindu fascism. This is the party, which wants to wipe out Maoists from India. Not only the Maoists, this is the party which always discards the role of leftwing parties in India and elsewhere. It was Jaswant Singha the leader of Bharatiya Janata Party and then foreign minister, during his official visit of Nepal, declared Nepalese Maoists as the terrorists and announced more supports to abolish the Maoist revolution.
Most of the left online and print magazines of India have denounced the role of Bharatiya Janata Party and Narendr Modi. International news portal also have denounced Narendra Modi as the Hindu fascist. But it is a matter of irony, not only irony, it is a matter of great sorrow and grief that the spokesperson of CPN-Maoist has declared Narendra Modi as a Nationalist leader! What a silly statement ! It is a matter of surprise that how can a member of revolutionary party can speak such words ! She is alone behind this event or there are other persons and agencies are working behind it ? It is the matter that needs investigation. As we think, it is a designed announcement. It reflects the ideological deviation of so called spokesperson.
We know, India is the number one enemy of this region. Here India means the reactionary regime of India. Neighboring countries always hate India as an expansionist country. The nationalism of Indian reactionaries has stood on the foundation of their hegemony over neighboring countries. The philosophy of their nationalism is to manage more and more domination over neighboring countries. India has occupied more than 70 places of Nepalese territory in the eastern and southern border. Indian regime wants to manage its hegemony in each and every part of the Nepalese society exercising neo-colonial position. Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Shree Lanka and Bhutan are facing same type of domination from Indian regime and these countries are fighting for their National sovereignty. In fact, in Indian context to be Nationalist means to suppress oppressed class, communities, castes and regions. Likewise in Indian context, to be nationalist means to create hegemony over neighboring countries. In such situation, how Pampha Bhusal dared to declear Narendra Modi, the leader of fascist camp, as a nationalist leader ? We know, the whole world knows Gautam Buddha was born in Nepal . Recently in a speech, Narendra Modi said – Buddha was born in Bihar, India. This is the real face of Pampha Bhusal's nationalist leader.
We know, basically Indian Congress Party and Bhartiya Janata Party both represent same class and same attitudes. In fact, Narendra Modi is the new client of American Imperialism. After the victory of Narendra Modi Marxist intellectual Saroj Giri wrote two articles : 'Modi the secular right-wing and communalism' in May 16, and 'A moment of Clarity' in May 17 in sanhati.com. We know friend Saroj Giri has written dozens of articles about oppressed people of India and state terror by Indian regime.
Here we want to put some words from above mentioned articles.
It is in this context that Modi might emerge as the strong man about whom the world is supposed is wondering, ‘who is he like?’: Putin, Lee Kuan Yew, Ahmedijinad, Ariel Sharon, Xi Jinping, Thatcher, Shinzo Abe or Reagan. Perhaps more like Sharon with the difference that Modi was more directly connected to the 2002 pogrom in Gujarat than Sharon to the Sabra and Shatila massacre. And also like Thatcher, in his commitment to neoliberal economics and destroying working class power. 'Modi The secular right-wing and communalism
In another place, he has mentioned :
Thanks to this, perhaps the Maoist movement is the single large left movement in the country today. Given its extra-parliamentary nature, it is like the reserve army of left revolutionaries, beyond the contingency of electoral defeat or victory, beyond the long arm of a Modi!
Hence we cannot simply fight to get a Congress or the left or seculars back in government. Let us also not harangue with the big media and big corporates and complain about their pro-Modi stance. Let us accept that the present democratic order is inherently skewed against any possibility real social transformation – or else one only indulges in an untruth. Let us reject both Modi and Nehru and revise ‘the idea of India’ from a left-wing perspective instead of defending this status quo.
One cannot fight one untruth with another. The process of truth must begin. Time to begin from the beginning again, as Lenin would say. Particularly now that we are living in this moment of clarity.
Now it is clear, only those persons and agencies who are working for Indian interest as faithful clients, can admire Modi. Only such persons can admire Indian reactionary regime. A Nepalese citizen, who loves his land, country's national sovereignty and he, who is working for the oppressed people of Nepal, must condemn, should denounce the statement of Pampha Bhusal. That's why The NextFront condemns the silly statement of Pampha Bhusal. Pambha Bhusal must be penalized for this anti-nationalist and anti-people statement. It is the evidence that new clients are emerging also in the new party . Let us wait and see for more other new names. And it is a matter of glory that oppressed people of Nepal and the revolutionary cadres of CPN-Maoist are watching this event very watchfully. They are ready to face each and every thing that is going to happen in the coming days.
