A Plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), a great and glorious vanguard of the Nepalese proletariat, has been accomplished within a base area in countryside of the country, in a convention hall, specially decorated with various banners and canopies. This press statement has been issued in order to make the decisions public of that historic meeting which was held for ten days on the chairmanship of Chairman Prachanda within the circumstance of special security cordon of the People’s Liberation Army and direct assistance of the broad masses of people, and with the full participation of all the comrades who have been fighting in all fronts and responsibilities except absence of those who have been under enemy arrest.
1. At the beginning of the meeting, which commenced with a brief inauguration speech by Chairman Prachanda, a tribute of honour was offered to innumerable immortal martyrs of great People’s War including Central Committee member comrade Paribartan as well as innumerable known and unknown martyrs within the country and abroad by observing a minute silence.
2. In the Plenum of the Central Committee, the newly appointed Central Committee members have taken a grave and emotional oath towards their post and responsibility.
3. The central in-charges of different regional bureaus, military bureaus and the members of the Standing Committee have presented reports of their commands, bureaus as well as of their departments. At the end of the reporting, synthesising the report Chairman Prachanda, by accentuating that the reporting system need to be made more scientific in the future, concluded that with revolutionary transformation of this overall report, the ideological, political, organizational and military foundation has been built up in order to enter into strategic offensive from strategic equilibrium.
4. As a main agenda of the meeting Comrade Prachanda had presented a political and organizational document titled "Advance on the stage of strategic offensive raising the process of revolutionary transformation to a new height". The essence of that document which was adopted unanimously with miner edition after an intense and enthusiastic debate for six days reads below—
A. Having done a consigned and inspiring analysis of the present situation and having done an acute examination of the economic, political and strategic characteristics of the world imperialism, the document has drawn an objective synthesis that there is an inevitably irresolvable crisis before the imperialism and the development of raising wave of world revolution.
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, (on 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.
B. 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 Neharu, that regards the Himalayan ranges as its boarder, 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.
C. By analysing the present situation, the document has clarified the facts that the old state that is centred in the district headquarters and capital, has, instead of seeking for a historically inevitable reconstruction of the state power and qualitative political outlet, been adhering in one-point agenda of looting the national assets of the country and people on the back of imperialism and expansionism to the end hour of its existence. Submitting total reign of Nepalese economy to foreign comprador capitalists, the daily task of the old state has been to push and spread the unemployed Nepalese people through out the world in pitiful conditions, under the grand design of their imperialist masters. Having deeply concerned to this situation and expressed ferocity, the document has abrogated the meaningless and purposeless hullabaloo of negotiation rose by the flunkeys (so called government) of the feudal palace. Certainly, the document has not abrogated the question of negotiation with the old state. But the document has clarified that such negotiation could be held not with the flunkeys of the old state but with the master itself, along with the reliable international mediation, centring on the issues of making the Nepalese people fully sovereign power. Similarly, the document has also clarified that the negotiation and interactions will be held among the parliamentary political parties and the representatives of the civil societies.
D. 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.
E. In another important section of the document, a broad proposal on the organisational rectification is presented. Divided to 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.
1. After the adoption of the political and organisational Document by the Central Committee, several important decisions on necessary organisational and military distributions have been made according to the new plan of strategic offensive.
2. At the final stage of the meeting, a conclusive session was organised on which various comrades have presented their feelings. While keeping their views, all of the comrades have said that this Central Committee Meeting remained important of far-reaching implication from the ideological, political, organisational and methodological standpoint.
At the end of the conclusion session, Chairman Comrade Prachanda defined the meeting as victory and unity in multiple important sections and concluded the meeting with his important speech.
