UCPN (M) strayed from communist ideal: Chand
Mar 5, 2014-
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-UML 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.
