Addressing a mass meeting in Tundikhel of Kathmandu, February 12, 2013, Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal of Unified Maoists spared much of his time trying to justify his party’s fresh stand adopted through the party’s national convention held in Hetauda of Makwanpur district.
He said, “We would have been standing at the same position had we not made timely adjustments in the political line adopted by the party.”
“The party would have been in the same state as that of Mohan Bikram Singh if we had not gone through timely adjustments”, he reiterated.
But where is the mention of the support of NOIDA in such an adjustment Mr. Chairman? And what about Muni’s support for this transformation?
“In the last 25 years since I took over the charge of the party by making continuous experiments in Marxism we have arrived at this stage. Marxism is not a religious text. It is rather a science. Whereas others only read the text, we made several experiments to arrive at this stage.”
Dahal in the course of his speech also said that to amass weapons for a revolutionary party is not a difficult proposition.
“I would like to remind that we had no weapons before 2052 B.S. If required then we have the capacity to provide military training to the entire population.”
“I am aware that some so-called revolutionary parties are terming us as revisionists and rightists but they are not putting efforts to institutionalize the changes”, he said criticizing the Nepal Communist Party-Maoist led by Chairman Mohan Baidya Kiran.
The Party deputies Baburam and Narayan Kaji also spoke at the mass meet.
