Documents and Statements of the
Communist Party of Nepal (Revolutionary Maoist)

[Originally named: CPN — Maoist]


      This page is devoted to making available documents and statements of the Communist Party of Nepal (Revolutionary Maoist). The CPN(RM) was formed with the shorter original name of CPN—Maoist and the word Revolutionary was added later. It was created in June 2012 as a split-off of the more revolutionary and left-wing elements from the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist). In 2006 the UCPN(Maoist), later called the CPN (Maoist Centre), abandoned the People’s War it had been leading with such great promise and became a reformist parliamentary party mired in hopelessly ineffective bourgeois politics. The first party congress of the CPN(RM) took place in January 2013. (This was formally called the Seventh National Congress, for reasons of historical continuity.)

      The founding Chairman of the CPN(RM) is Mohan Baidya (or Vaidya), who is also known by the Party name “Kiran”. Articles by Kiran and other leaders of the new party back when they were still part of the UCPN(Maoist) can be found at individual leaders of the UCPN(M).

      Unfortunately, in its first years the CPN(RM) didn’t seem to be able to develop a political line that was very distinguishable from that of the UCPN(M), and there soon developed views within it that they should merge back into the UCPN(M). But this did not occur.

      However, the initial failure of the CPN(RM) to develop a truly distinctive and revolutionary line alarmed a major section of the new party, as did all the talk about rejoining the UCPN(M). Things came to a head in November 2014 when a section of the CPN(RM) led by Netra Bikram Chand (“Biplab” or “Biplav”) split off to form a separate new party using the older name: “CPN Maoist” (without the hyphen, but later with parentheses around the word “Maoist”). It now appears to many that the revolutionary hopes of the Nepalese people may depend on one or both of these parties. The future line and strategy of these two parties is probably still an open question.

— NOTICE —

      Due to the repressive legislation and judicial decisions in the United States, we at BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET want to make it completely clear that we do not have any connection whatsoever with the Communist Party of Nepal (Revolutionary Maoist), or with any other party in Nepal or any other country for that matter. We do not aid, promote, assist, support, coordinate with, or provide any sort of services or advice to the CPN(RM) or to any other party. However, we do support the right of free speech, and the right of the people in both Nepal and internationally to read the views and publications of this and all other parties and organizations. For this reason we do object to the de facto suppression of the views and ideas put forward by the CPN(RM). And for this reason alone we are making copies of many CPN(RM) documents available on this site, along with those by many of its leaders, critics and other commentators.
