CPN-Maoist Intensifying the Boycott Campaign
”We are not opponent of the CA election in an absolute sense, however, this election is not being held to write people’s constitution, rather it is based on the design of taking the country towards Sikkimisation. So, our party, the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist, has decided to actively and vigorously boycott this so-called second election. This decision is not based on the interest and opinion of the people. We earnestly call upon the respected masses of the people to make the boycott movement effective and a grand success.”
Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist
This is the Statement published by CPN-Maoist regarding the election boycott Campaign. The Central Committee meeting of CPN-Maoist which was held in Pokhara valley on July 2013, had decided to boycott the so called CA election actively and vigorously. Now there are only 2 days left for the so called polling day, and the CPN-Maoist is escalating the boycott campaign throughout the country. As the degree and velocity of boycott campaign is advancing the reactionary government also has come out with its all strength, to suppress the boycott campaign. In fact, it is not only a election-boycott campaign, in essence it is an anti- Sikkimisation movement, a movement of national safeguard and sovereignty.
At present, the reactionary government backed by the Indian expansionism and the American Imperialism is intensifying the state terror on the oppressed people of Nepal, who are in the way to foil the so called CA election of 19th November. Particularly after the arrival of Alok Joshi the chief of notorious RAW (research wing of India) and Jimmi Carter, former president of USA, in the name of ”law and order” the reactionary government has extended the state terror on the Nepalese people . More than 300 party cadres including the Central Committee members Comrade Maya Prasad Aacharya ”Parasmani” and Mangal Shahi, have been arrested from the various parts of the country . Houses and party offices have been raid. To intensify the state terror government has deployed near about two hundred thousand ‘security personnel’.
Officers of the home ministry have declared that they have deployed 62, 000 Nepal army personnel, 110,000 Nepal police personal and 32,000 armed police force (APF) and 10,000 plain-cloths informers. In real, it is not the correct number, they have deployed more than that they have officially declared. The streets of Kathmandu city are full of armed forces. It looks that the government has declared Nepal, as ‘a state of emergency’. Including online magazines, government agencies have forced to shut down the medias which support the boycott campaign .
Not only the medias close to CPN-Maoist, they have threatened other medias also not to publish and broadcast any news and views regarding the boycott campaign. In the name of ‘code of conduct’ they are providing censored materials to the medias. In another side, the big house owned medias, medias backed by the external powers and government owned medias are publishing negative news and views regarding the boycott campaign. These medias are publishing provocative news and are creating pressure to suppress the boycott campaign– a nationalist movement. The reactionary government itself has created a terrorized situation in the name of ”peaceful election”.
Right now, officers of Indian Embassy are very active and they are backing their lackeys with money and muscle. Frequently they are organizing meeting with Tarai-based pro-Indian parties. Especially they have frequently meeting with Prachand and Baburam, their new faithful clients. Indians are busy to make their strategy for the forthcoming days. They are making a grand design for the large number of pro-Indian representatives in the constituent assembly . It has come to know that Indian embassy has deployed his own intelligence members to collect the information about the activities of CPN-Maoist.
It is also known to us that the recently arrived ‘Indian officer’, the Delhi envoy, along with Prachand-Bauram are forcing the Government to arrest Comrade Mohan Baidhya ‘Kiran’ along with other seniors leaders Despite of such state terror revolutionary people lead by CPN-Maoist have come out in the streets to intensify the election boycott campaign. Since 5 days long-root vehicles are totally shut down. Rolpa, the first liberated zone during the 10 years People’s War, has declared as a restricted area for the reactionary candidates. No any candidate has dared to enter the village. Party has organized March-Past rally of youth volunteers, from one village to another village to make public awareness. Mean while intellectuals and journalists have released a press statement concerning the current situation.
They have demanded to postponed the election and has asked immediate talk with the CPN-Maoist. At this very moment, I want to make clear that as I have mentioned above , this is not just a CA election, it is a process of Sikkimisation–a small country which was captured by India in the name of ”people’s verdict”. So we urge our well wishers and supporters inside the country and abroad, to make public opinion against the Sikkimisation Project designed by Indian expansionism and American imperialism. The reactionary government backed by the foreign masters must be denounced. There is no another way except to foil the so called CA election. Let us Condemn the state terror and intensify the boycott campaign.
