Maoist CC Meeting:
Maoist Leaders Differ on Next Strategic Move

Post B Basnet

Kathmandu, Aug 25: In his supplementary political paper, Maoist Senior Vice-chairman Mohan Baidya has demanded a thorough review of the party’s tactical line adopted since the signing of  the 12-point agreement with the parliamentary political parties, and chart  out a new course to achieve communist political goals.

Baidya,  who leads the hard-line camp in the Maoist party, also expressed dissatisfaction over the leadership’s reluctance to prepare grounds for an immediate revolt,  as decided by the Kharipati national conclave, to seize state power.

Along with Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal,  Baidya and another Vice-chairman Dr. Baburam Bhattarai presented separate political papers in the Central Committee (CC) meeting that began at party headquarters  Paris Danda, Kathmandu,  on Wednesday.

“We should review the party’s  course since the signing of the 12-point pact, and go for a new one.  Otherwise, we will end up becoming another parliamentary party,” a  central committee member quoted Baidya as saying at the meeting.

According to party leaders, Baidya attacked both Dahal and Bhattarai in his political document.  “He indirectly dubbed the views of both as deviations from communist ideology.  For him Dahai is a centrist and Bhattarai a revisionist,  said a Maoist source.

Baidya was jailed in India when the historic 12-point agreement was signed between then underground CPN (Maoist) and the seven-party alliance, and he is not happy with the deal.

However,  Dahal stated that the party should move ahead with the agenda of peace and constitution while preparing grounds for a revolt.

On the other hand,  Bhattarai argued  that the party should rather institutionalize the current achievements and zero in on peace process and constitution drafting rather than go for an immediate revolt.
