Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist)
In the history of Nepalese revolution, the people's liberation army has established a new record today, the April 6, on which day the historic mass movement of 1990 against monarchy had reached to its climax. A helicopter (M-17), to which the revolutionary fighters had attacked when one of the divisions of the PLA working under our party's Eastern Command in its way back after it had a courageous attack upon the district headquarters of Sarlahi district and had kept the security officials including the so-called CDO under its control, has been completely destroyed by exploding and blazing in the sky at about 1:30 in the this morning. The helicopter that had been blindly firing upon the masses in the name of actions against the people's liberation army was used at Thokarpa of Sindhupalchowk a few days back. In the morning, when the HQ of the so-called royal army was reported from their own communication set, it was said that the helicopter was damaged by the attack of the terrorists but now a Mandale design of uttering this incident of attack an accident has been made to maintain morale of the so-called royal army. The reality is that the people's liberation army, by using modern and domestic technology, has acquired first time a great victory against the so-called air attack of the enemy. Let it be remembered, a helicopter that had come to attack upon a mass meeting of thousands of people at Mainapokhari of Bardia yesterday was forced to have an emergency landing at the district headquarters after one of the contingents of the people's liberation army under Western Command attacked upon it. According to Western Command, the masses of the people had enthusiastically concluded the program after they came to take note of a helicopter fleeing away with smokes after the said attack.
On behalf of the party and the central headquarters of the people's liberation army, I heartily congratulate and thank the entire ranks of the people's army in general, and the Eastern Command and entire comrades and fighters of the division under it in particular, for the success achieved in this historic day and in the process of decisive struggle against the absolute monarchy.
This new victory upon the gangsters of autocracy achieved by the people's liberation army and the historic mass movement that has advanced ahead from the process of encircling and chasing hundreds of policemen by the people of Lalitpur in the valley will not come to a halt till a democratic new Nepal free of the feudal autocracy forever has been established. In this historic occasion, our party heartily appeals the entire masses of all class, nation, region and sex, including those of the valley, to keep on creating storm of movement till the process of establishing democratic republic through constituent assembly has been ascertained. Defeat of feudal autocracy and victory of the people is sure.
