Bhusal stresses on relevance on Maoism in Nepal
KATHMANDU: Claiming that Maoism postulated by Chinese communist leader Mao Tse-tung is equally relevant in Nepal, the CPN-Maoist has said that it is committed to “accomplish the Nepali revolution through ‘creative’ use of Maoism along with peculiarities of Nepal.” Issuing a press statement on the occasion of 119th birthday of Chairman Mao, CPN-Maoist Spokesperson Pampha Bhusal expressed tributes to the communist ideologue on behalf of her party. Bhusal hailed Mao’s contribution in the development of Marxism and said “Mao established new people’s power and postulated social theory in China to free the nation from semi-feudalism and semi-colonialism.”
1,000 to participate in CPN-Maoist general convention
KATHMANDU, Dec 26: The much-awaited general convention of the CPN-Maoist scheduled for 9-13 January will see around 1,000 Maoist leaders participating. This would be the first general convention of the party following a split in the UCPN (Maoist) last June. Then UCPN (Maoist) leader Mohan Baidya split the party after it adopted “peace and constitution” as the party´s line against his demand for a “people´s revolt”. “Around 1000 representatives will participate in the general convention from within and outside the country,”
Pampha Bhusal, spokesperson of CPN-Maoist, told Republica. According to party central committee member Maheshwar Dahal, around 100 representatives will participate from India, Europe, America and other parts of the Asia. A total of 44 central committee members and 30 central advisory committee members will participate in the general convention as organizing committee members.
The party has completed conventions of the village, municipal and district levels. Bhusal informed that the state committee conventions will be completed by 1 January. Both UCPN (Maoist) and CPN-Maoist had announced their convention dates after the split. UCPN (Maoist) general convention scheduled for February 2, 2013 is overdue for two decades. Pushpa Kamal Dahal has been leading the party since the 1992 general convention held in Chitwan.
