KATHMANDU, Oct 31: Categorizing the parties on the basis of their political character, the CPN-Maoist has labeled the UCPN (Maoist) as a “rightist-revisionist and opportunist” party, claiming the latter has undertaken various anti-national and anti-people activities such as the BIPPA agreement.
Presenting the party´s political document at the party central committee meeting in Buddhanagar on Monday, party Chairman Mohan Baidya said that the UCPN (Maoist) is the biggest danger for the Nepali communist movement. He also accused the party of confusing the communists and the people.
"The document does not explicitly name the parties but only hints at them. This has been done deliberately as there is a compulsion to talk them," said a central committee member of CPN-Maoist.
After the split, the CPN-Maoist labeled the UCPN (Maoist) a “neo-revisionist and opportunist” party. UCPN (Maoist) chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and vice-chairman and Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai have been termed “red renegades” saying they betrayed the Nepali revolution and Nepali people. Varying interpretation of Marxism in UCPN (Maoist) was the main reason for party split.
Interestingly, the political document places CPN (UML) and UCPN (Maoist) in the same category --rightist-revisionist and opportunist.
The Nepali Congress (NC) and Madhes-based political parties have been placed in the second category --reactionary and “status quoist”.
According to CPN-Maoist leaders, NC and Madhes-based parties represent the landlords, elites, capitalists and upper class people of Nepal.
The third category is a group of patriotic, revolutionary and leftist forces. They are fringe leftist parties following Marxism, Leninism and Maoism or Maoism.
The 84-page political document presented by Baidya has 13 different parts. The next central committee meeting of the party will be held on Thursday after the CC members thoroughly study the document.
