Maoist Information Bulletin – Bulletin of the Unified Communist Party Of Nepal (MAOIST)

Editorial

31 March 2009

Our readers from abroad expressed their serious and positive concern when we were being unable to continue in bringing out the Maoist bulletin, which was instrumental in providing information about the ongoing political development of Nepal. Because of the serious confusion and incertitude within the party regarding the question of major tactical question concerning continuing the revolution, we were unable to disseminate the correct information about the political ups and downs going on in Nepal. In fact there were lots of materials around us. But in absence of correct and concrete orientation it was not possible to make Maoist analysis and synthesis without which bringing out a Maoist bulletin would be merely a formality and amounted to just collecting and keeping account of the events.. We thought that our responsibility would not be fulfilled just doing that..

New situation arrived after successful completion of National Convention of erstwhile CPN(Maoist) in December 2008, when major tactical line of ‘People’s Federal Democratic National Republic’ was passed unanimously and rest of the contentious issues were left for the debate in the forum and right to take the decision was bestowed on the forthcoming National Party Congress. Subsequent decisions were taken by United National Convention of the two Maoist parties, CPN(Maoist) and CPN(Unity Centre-Mashal), which gave rise to formation of Unified CPN(Maoist). Thus the political stagnation was overcome and the Convention opened up new way for carrying forward revolution. It provided enough space and we felt it necessary to continue in bringing out the Maoist bulletin, which could fulfill its responsibility in  true sense.

The National Convention of the Party held on Nov-Dec. 2008 has rekindled the hope and enthusiasm among the fraternal parties in India and world over. We must admit that ever since the party entered the phase of peace process beginning November 2005 till today, we could not maintain lively relationship and discourse with the fraternal parties. The Compulsions on the one hand to adopt complicated and circuitous tactics in a small country like Nepal situated between two giant states has given rise to numerous questions about the course of the revolution; and furthermore, lack of lively bilateral dialogue, on the other hand, had apparently created a kind of confusion among the revolutionary forces, particularly in India. The matter of grave concern to one and all is whether the Party could break the trap laid by external and internal reactionary forces and carry out the revolution further or the Party would be degenerated into parliamentary reformism and turn into a tool of U.S. imperialism and Indian expansionism. This is a manifestation of genuine concern on the part of supporters and sympathizers of Nepali revolution. We must welcome it. Read the rest of this entry »
