Advance of People’s War in Nepal!

Oppose Indian Ruler’s Dangerous Designs in Nepal!!


The media is giving out daily accounts of clashes between the Maoist forces of Nepal and the reactionary State of King Gynanendra. The Maoists have been attacking the RNA in all parts of the country in systematic and coordinated plans. As an example, a press release of the PLA Nepal Western Division (dated Nov.11, 04) indicated the nature of some attacks in just the two day — in one of which the platoon commander, Com. Adarsha, was martyred.

These systematic countrywide attacks was a result of decisions taken at an important plenum of the CC of the CPN(Maoist) held in end August. In a brief press release issued on August 31st by the CC it brought out some of the main points incorporated in the document passed at the Plenum, which said:

The document has accepted the challenges to develop on all the component parts of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, the Marxist Philosophy, the Political economy and the Scientific Socialism by applying dialectical materialism for the success of revolution as well as in the service of the world proletarian revolution and in resistance against imperialist erected ideological and cultural confusions including so called postmodernism in the 21st century, the economic colonialism and process of looting in the name of so called globalisation and privatisation, and against the modern military fascism waged in the name of war against terrorism. In this reference, welcoming the ideological debate led by the International Communist Movement, mainly by the Committee of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement RIM, (of which our glorious party also constitutes a membership), the document has accentuated on the unified initiative of the whole Party for a developed and new ideological synthesis of Prachanda Path in Nepal.

The document has made a lengthy historical explanation over the process of expansionist intervention of the reactionary Indian ruling class over Nepalese nationality, geological integrity, economic self-dependency as well as over political and cultural freedom; over the national capitulationist character of the old feudal state, and the struggle of the Nepalese people against the expansionist intervention and national capitulationism. Along with the analysis, the document has clarified the fact that having backed by the US imperialism, the Indian expansionism is coming on the direct intervention against the great People’s War. This has been further justified by the intervention and arrest of several responsible comrades including comrade Kiran, the veteran member of the standing Committee of our Party, in different cities of India recently targeting our Party Headquarter. Having following the expansionist doctrine of Nehru, that regards the Himalayan ranges as its border, the Indian ruling class is advancing with vicious intrigue and conspiracy with the strategy of either Bhutanise (Treating with Bhutan- Tr.) or Sickimmise (Treat as to Sikkim- Tr.) Nepal. The Indian monopoly capitalist rulers, who have always backed destabilisation and anarchy in Nepal, have now been openly threatening Nepal with their ill intention bringing Nepal under their control through military intervention and conduct massacre against the patriotic and self-respected Nepalese people in the name of so-called supporting to the war against terrorism. Indian expansionism has now stood as externally a main barricade for the creation of credible environment to find a forward-going political solution through peaceful negotiation. The chieftains of the old state of Nepal, in a daydream of lengthening the period of reactionary state, have been committing a heinous crime of mocking over the independent existence and self-respect of the Nepalese people by kneeling down in front of the Indian expansionism. Having made an afore said analysis, the document has called for all the self-respected and patriotic Nepalese people stand unified against the national capitulationism of the old state, Indian expansionist interventions and the danger of nearing military attacks. The document, in the new planning of the party, has emphasised to concentrate against the national capitulation and Indian interventions in all out ideological, political and military fields. The document has also emphasised that the independence of Nepal and Nepalese people can be preserved by turning the whole country to a war front, by militarising all people, and by raising the war strategy to a new height against military interventions of any imperialism and expansionism. Similarly, in the document it is believed that in the war against national capitulation and expansionist interventions, there will be support and sympathy not only of the broad patriotic Nepalese people (which also includes the patriotic personals within the so-called Royal Army of the old state) but also there will be a support and sympathy of just loving Indian masses as well as the masses of the world over.

In another very important section, the document has discussed achievements and weakness of the Party work in the past one year, and has drawn conclusion that the foundation in order to advance in the strategic offensives against the enemy has been built up. On the basis of the specific context of Nepal and in the present international situation, the document has presented an explanation of the strategic offensive and with a certain political and military target, it has also lay out a first plan of strategic offensive. In order to achieve a targeted aims, the document has stressed on developing resistance on the leadership of the Unified and Centralised Leadership to the level of Party, People’s Liberation Army, United People’s Revolutionary Council, various National and Regional Autonomous Governments, different fronts, departments, and broad masses of people. Similarly, in the new plan, keeping attention on the skill of the People’s Liberation Army, the state of means, resources and qualitative growth on number and the necessity of strategic offensives, the formation of the PLA has been developed three Divisions with the formation of Central Division in addition to Eastern and Western Divisions. Hence, the regular force of the PLA has been organised on three Divisions, 9 Brigades and 29 Battalions. Similarly, it is also decided that altogether one hundred thousand (100,000) people’s militias will also be organised under the formation of Company under the Districts and Regional Headquarters. Finally, the new plan has also clarified an aim to provide a military training on defensive and offensives to the broad masses of the people to fight a Tunnel War against foreign interventions.

In another important section of the document, a broad proposal on the organisational rectification is presented. Divided into two sections including ideological rectification and organisational and working style rectification, a concrete plan and programme has also been pointed out in the document. According to that, on ideological rectification, a concrete orientation has been laid out in the document on the problem of study and practice of the dialectical materialism about the correct Marxist-Leninist-Maoist conception on preservation, practice and development of Prachanda Path, importance of ideological struggle against individualist anarchism and the bureaucratic working style. About organisational and working style rectification, having learned from the past weaknesses, certain methodology has been pointed out mainly to make the relation with the friendly forces a respectful, lively and intense. The essence of the document is to aim to take the responsibility of the whole country. A certain methodology has also been laid out to initiate the rectification as a campaign from the centre to the bottom.

In the light of the growing civil war in the country, the new UPA government in India has been exhibiting its expansionist fangs against the people of Nepal right from the day it came to power. Treading the earlier NDA path, it had forged close links with the genocidal King Gynanendra, seeking to prop it up in every way possible. As we go the press this despot has arrieved on a high profile state visit to India to conspire for greater Indian assistance to crush the ongoing people’s war in Nepal. Of all the political formations in the country it is the CPI)Maoist), as vanguard of the Indian oppressed masses, that has strongly condemned these interventionist policies of the Indian rulers. In a statement issed by its General Secretary, Com. Ganapathy, on Dec.17, 04, it said:

Nepali’s King Gyanendra’s eleven-day official visit will start from Dec. 23. Earlier prime minister of Nepal and chief of the RNA visited India in September and November respectively. Now the main purpose of the king’s visit is to ensure support from the four bordering states of Bengal, Bihar, UP, UK and its 1800 Km. stretch to deploy the Indian armed forces and to beef up hundreds of outposts, which have emerged in the recent past to monitor the CPN(Maoist) activity. To push its armed forces directly the Indian government as a first step beefed up its border vigil to ensure safe passage for its armed forces when it will enter to fight along with the RNA against the Maoists. In the first week of December Defence Minister Mr. Pranab Mukherjee strategically declared that India will render all assistance to the Royal Nepal Army like supplying all types of military equipment, training RNA personnel and sealing the border. It is not difficult to understand the essence of this statement. The Indian ruling classes are going to wage an undeclared and deceitful war against the Nepali people and the People’s Liberation Army under the leadership of the CPN(Maoist).

Since the last few years the Nepali people have been waging war against the monarchy under the leadership of the Maoists with the aim of establishing a new democratic society. Imperialists and the entire reactionaries are fiercely opposing this revolutionary war of Nepal. The CPM, one of the main props of the UPA govt. at the Centre kept mum on the decision of the government and visit of the king. In West Bengal, where it is in power, it is not sparing any chance to play its role in crushing the revolution in Nepal in the name of opposing ‘terrorism’. The CPI(Maoist) led police forces have arrested many leaders and activists of the CPN (Maoist) including Com. Mohan Baidya, one of the topmost leaders, in Bengal. Bengals’ Buddha, Bihars’ Lalu, UP’s Mulayam and Uttarakhand’s Tiwary are preparing for a red carpet welcome to the king during his official visit from December 23.

On the one hand the King is pursuing the UPA government to get full assistance and blessing to his operations against Nepal’s Maoist revolutionaries, on the other hand he is closely moving with the Sangh Parivar, particularly the Vishwa Hindu Parishad. On this or that pretext the Raja is keeping close links with the communal fascists who are ideologically staunch opponents of communism to get their involvement against the Maoists in Nepal and India.

Our CC(P) will mobilize the Indian people in solidarity with the great revolutionary struggle of the Nepal people against the unjust deeds of the Indian Government and the king of Nepal. We are confident that if the Indian Govt. dares to send its mercenary army for suppressing the revolution in Nepal it will have to incur the same shameful defeat as it had received in Sri Lanka in the 1980s. The CC(P) calls upon all the revolutionary and democratic people of the Indian subcontinent to rise in united struggle against the expansionist Indian ruling classes and their mercenary army.

The CC(P) calls upon all the revolutionary, democratic, justice and peace-loving people of India to forcefully oppose the Indian Government’s interference in the internal affairs of Nepal.

The CC(P) calls upon the jawans of the Indian army who hail from the toiling classes, not to involve themselves in killing their class brethren by participating in the unjust military campaign of the Indian Government.

We are calling on the people of Bengal, Bihar, UP and Uttarakhand to oppose the Rajas’ visit to these states.

We call upon the people of South Asia, as well as the entire world people to rise against and resist the India Govt.’s interference in the internal affairs of Nepal for protecting the medieval rule of king Gynanendra whose hands are soaked with the blood of thousands of Nepali people.
