Posted by Harry Sims on February 28, 2011

The following comes from the Himalayan Times. Though this information comes from the bourgeois press, it is with great interest that we examine this news and learn from this experience.

“Dahal said all the hotels and factories would be turned into barracks if the reactionary forces attempt to stop peace and constitution-drafting processes. He said his party would lead the revolt.”

“People had not believed when we were preparing for people’s war.” He said the dreams of the party and martyrs would not be realised unless the workers captured state power.”

KATHMANDU: Unified CPN-Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal today directed all workers to make final preparations for the people’s revolt, claiming no other options were left.

Addressing the first national gathering of the Majdoor Swoyam Sewak Dal —Workers’ Volunteers under All Nepal Trade Union Federation (ANTUF) — at the Khanna Garment, Dahal said all the hotels and factories would be turned into barracks if the reactionary forces attempt to stop peace and constitution-drafting processes. He said his party would lead the revolt.

“Probably people don’t believe us when we talk about revolt. But they will know once we produce results,” he said, adding, “People had not believed when we were preparing for people’s war.” He said the dreams of the party and martyrs would not be realised unless the workers captured state power.

Admitting that there have been several problems within the party, including symptoms of anarchy, rightist-leaning, opportunism, he said the party had been working to get rid of them.

Vice-chairman Mohan Baidhya, general secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa, standing committee member Barshaman Pun, ANTUF chairman Shalikram Jammarkattel and general secretary Ganesh Regmi attended the event.

Earlier the workers took a rally from Shanti Batika to Gwarko.

The meeting formed a central committee of the Workers’ Volunteers under the Workers Volunteers Department of ANTUF, led by deputy general secretary Jagat Simkhada.

The standing committee meeting of the party last Friday had decided to dissolve all the parallel organisations, including the All Nepal Revolutionary Trade Union Federation led by Badri Bajgain.

“We have decided to suspend action taken against Bajgain and decided to form a national organising committee to hold ANTUF conference,” said Vice-chairman Narayan Kaji Shrestha.
