Nepal’s Huge Maoist Rally: “Now We Will Capture the State”

The following report on Sunday’s rally is from Telegraph Nepal, not from the Maoists themselves. Caution needs to be taken in a period of disinformation. However this news is important, and so we are posting it here.

Nepal Maoist threaten Revolt, State Capture: Sunday Mass meets

The wounded Maoists party had organized huge rallies in major centers of the country, on Sunday May 17, 2009. The rallies later converged into mass-meets wherein the Maoists leaders mostly criticized their political opponents. President of the Republic Dr. Ram Baran Yadav and Mr. Madhav Kumar Nepal- the UML leader who in all likelihood is to lead the country as the next prime minister- were the Maoists’ major targets.

Caretaker Prime Minister and the Maoists party chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal addressing a sea of Maoists cadre in Kathmandu repeatedly called the UML and the Nepali Congress as the agents of the foreign Gods.

“As per the dictates of their foreign masters, the dejected and rejected UML and NC leaders are forming the next government”, said a pretty annoyed Dahal. “Their heads will be always down as they have surrendered to their foreign masters, we have resigned but yet our heads will always be up”, said Dahal.

Addressing the Nepalgunj gathering, the Maoists Party Central Secretariat member Mr. Chandra Prakash Gajurel said that his party will now take on the path to conclude the incomplete decade long rebellion led by his party.

“Out from the government is an opportunity for us to complete the revolution, President Ram Baran Yadav has given the Maoists the golden opportunity to bring the revolution to an end through Peoples’ Uprising III”, he said adding “Gyanendra gave us the opportunity to wage Peepholes’ Uprising II”.

“Now we will capture the State, which is the prime objective of the Maoist party,” Mr. Gajurel told while addressing a gathering in Nepalgunj, May 17, 2009.

Similarly, addressing a mass-meet in Biratnagar on Sunday, Mr. Narayan Kaji Shrestha Prakash- Maoists party leader, alleged that Madhav Nepal-a senior UML leader, was an Indian agent.

“Mr. Nepal is being lifted to the seat of the prime minister as per the dictates of his Indian masters”, said Mr. Prakash.

Lila Mani Pokharel, another Maoists leader in Dhangadi threatened to grab the UNMIN monitored weapons housed in the cantonments now.

“If the reactionary move continues, we may have to finally grab our weapons”, said Pokharel.
“The Maoists were very simple when they were in the government, out of the government we have become dangerous”, also said Pokharel.

    “Now we will capture the State, which is the prime objective of the Maoist party.” This was the statement of CP Gajurel, a senior leader of the UCPN (Maoist), at one of the May 17 rallies–not Chairman Prachanda. At the central rally, Prachanda’s speech focused on attacking the UML and Congress as being under remote control by foreign interests.

    It is an excellent thing that Gajurel is able to make this statement, and for Pokharel to threaten that the PLA will re-commission its weapons in the cantonment, while Prachanda continues to advocate limiting the struggle to restructuring the bourgeois state.
