Jan 10, 2015-
The national convention of CPN Maoist concluded in Tulsipur on Saturday, with Netra Bikram Chand being elected as the party general secretary. The convention approved course of action of the “unified people’s revolution” of the party.
The convention passed the party’s policy of launching an armed revolt immediately in the country if new constitution is promulgated by January 22. The party decided to adopt a two-tier front: the underground front under the leadership of Chand and the open front led by Tilak Pariyar.
The party decided to revive “people’s government”—the structure the then rebel Maoist party had followed, challenging the state authority during the decade-long insurgency in the country. The Chand-led outfit also proposed to form a military wing.
Party spokesperson Khadka Bahadur Bishwakarma said that the convention declared Indian expansionism and its compradors as the principal enemy of the party. Of the 65 member central committee, 58 were elected as members. Some of the party leaders are said to be semi-underground.
