Nepal Maoists to rejoice victory of Indian Maoists: Gajurel
TGW, November 5, 2009
Adding fuel to the fire, the Unified Maoists’ Party politburo member and the central Secretariat member Mr. C.P Gajurel has said that if the Indian Maoists bag success in their struggle in India, there is no point in not ‘rejoicing over their victory’.
Mr. C.P. Gajurel, taken as a hardliner, in an exclusive interview with one of the leading vernacular national dailies says, (sic), “If the Maoists in India are to succeed, not only in Nepal but the Maoists in the entire globe will rejoice their victory.” “There is no question not to support the Maoists in India if they emerge with flying colors finally”, Mr. Gajurel spoke his mind.
Mr. Gajurel made these remarks replying to a question on the view-point of Maoists’ in Nepal over the ongoing struggle being carried out by the outlawed Maoists Party of India.
Mr. Gajurel nevertheless, mentions that their relations with the Indian Maoists are based on ideological grounds only. Perhaps he hinted that REDS are REDS everywhere.
“The Indian government knows it well that our relations are based on ideological grounds only”, Gajurel says adding, “We are confident that India has the knowledge that no working relations exists between the two Maoists’ parties.”
