Two Momentous Years of Revolutionary Transformation

1. Introduction

The process of the revolutionary transformation of the present semi-feudal and semi-colonial Nepalese society through the People’s War has completed two years. Within this period the Party has successfully implemented two strategic plans of initiation and continuation of the People’s War and is at present carrying out the Third Strategic Plan. Today the People’s War has established itself as the only revolutionary alternative in Nepal by breaking through innumerable cycles of repression by the reactionaries and the opposition of the revisionists. In the process of the destruction of the old state power and the construction of a new one, the People’s War has today reached the stage of exercising local democratic state power. Creating a challenging influence and debate in every aspect of national life, from the military point of view the People’s War has reached the stage of the development of guerrilla zones. By practically opening the doors of a new state structure in the form of a Revolutionary United Front of the masses of different classes, nationalities and regions oppressed for centuries, the People’s War is showing in the course of development the path of its own preservation, development and victory. In place of the ­corrupt, immoral, fraudulent and ­extremely individualistic anar­chist culture of the old state, the People’s War has developed a new collective and lofty culture based on sacrifice, ideological commitment and self-sacrifice. In totality, amidst the process of intense repression and resistance within the past two years, the People’s War has performed a memorable role in revolutionary transformation.

Up to now ninety of the best sons and daughters of the Nepalese people have sacrificed their lives for accomplishing this historic success. Thousands of revolutionary fighters are braving jail, persecution and ­horrendous torture perpetrated by the reactionary regime. Hundreds of thousands of people are nurturing this
historic process through innumerable instances of sacrifice, devotion and self-sacrifice.

The path of development and victory of revolution has never been straight, easy and normal anywhere. The dialectical law of development is such that everywhere and always the revolution forges ahead by giving birth to intense opposition and counter-revolution and through ascent and descent, ups and downs, and losses and gains. The experience of the last two years of People’s War in Nepal is also no exception to that rule. Today, on the occasion of the completion of the two glorious years and of entering into the third challenging year of the People’s War it would be relevant to briefly review the past experiences.

2. Two years of People's War and the condition of the Reactionary State

In the initial phase of the historic People’s War, the Nepalese reactionary ruling class, like the reaction­ary classes of the world, tried to play down the great role of the people. Because of their own class outlook the reactionaries everywhere and always tend to “belittle” and “bully” the forces of the people. On the basis of this outlook the Nepalese reactionary ruling classes “declared” that they would wipe out the people’s forces within one and a half to two months and resorted to state terrorism with mass arrests, torture, pillage and genocide. The masses, the Party and the revolutionary fighters continued to resist this by setting historic examples of devotion and sacrifice.

What was the result? The result was consistent with what happens in genuine revolutionary movements all over the world. The result was as per the prognosis of the invincible ideology of Marxism-Leninism‑Maoism. The reactionary rulers had thought that they could easily extinguish the fire of People’s War by resorting to genocide, repression and terror. But, as has been proved by the law of science and the experience of history, the killing of the masses did not extinguish the fire of revolution, but added fuel to the fire. The negative act of the state terrorism was transformed into the positive result of development of the people’s revolution. Instead, the state terrorism tore off the mask of the so-called democracy, constitution and human rights donned by the reactionary state and helped the masses to recognise the fascist nature of the state. The fascist repressive drive of the whole year did not only reveal the crisis within the ruling state but deepened the crisis even more. After one year of repression they realised that there was an even bigger wave of people’s sympathy and co-operation for the People’s War. That thousands are replacing the hundreds, and hundreds of thousands are replacing the thousands! They realised that People’s War cannot be easily wished away, that it was a fundamentally new type of war.

Along with aggravating the crisis within the rotten state of the reactionary class this great process of People’s War intensified the contradictions within its different political factions. Among the various parliamen­tary cliques which serve as stooges for different imperialist and expansionist plunderers, the process of manoeuvering for power was intensified. Under the background of the above crisis and immediately after the celebration of the first glorious anniversary and commencement of the second year of People’s War, a new coalition within the reactionary state was installed, demonstrating naked perversion, immorality, hypocrisy and flunkeyism. The new government, with the participation of the renegade United Nepal Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) [UML] clique under the leadership of the Panchayati butchers was a mockery of even the limited achievements of the 1990 historic people’s movement. It adopted a new strategy of repression combined with diplomatic intrigue against the People’s War. Under this strategy in the beginning it was pronounced that the People’s War was a “political problem” and that it could be solved through “dialogue”. However, in practice preparations were made for even more intense suppression by constituting different commissions, particularly an intel­ligence commission. The people grasped the overall conspiracy of the new government when it decided to introduce an anti-terrorist bill and to mobilise the military against the people even when there was no change in the objective ­conditions.

By reflecting upon the teachings of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, the universal principle of the development of revolutionary war and the specificities of the development of the People’s War in Nepal, the Party had already visualised the possibility of the enemy mobilising its army against the People’s War. To resist this, the Party had prepared its entire rank and file, the combatants and the masses to a certain extent, with a series of political and military strategies and tactics. Postulating the mobilisation of the army against the ­­People'sWar as a sign of the victory of People’s War from the military point of view, the Party had already prepared itself for the great prospects and grave challenges.

The great Nepalese masses launched a countrywide protest campaign against the reactionary govern­ment’s decision to introduce the so-called anti-terrorist bill and to mobilise the army against the People’s War, thus rendering it dormant for the time being. Within the short period of one and a half months, the fascist nature of the new government got exposed. More importantly, for the first time the broader masses of people got the opportunity of identifying and understanding the reactionary nature of the revisionist renegade UML clique. Against the wrath of the people the government was forced to retreat. To a certain extent, the Nepalese people rightly experienced it as a form of victory for their initiative.

Alarmed by this kind of development, the feudalists and the imperialists started looking for another equation for maintaining their state. In this context started the much hated process of the buying and selling, confining and kidnapping of parliamentarians mainly under the intervention and for the interests of the Indian expansionists! The hypocrisy of parliamentary democracy got even more exposed. It became once more clear to everyone that the parliament and the parliamentarians are nothing but the sheepfold and sheep of imperialism and feudalism.

Ultimately a coalition government was formed, consisting of the past fascist Panchas and the Congress, infamous as traitors, mass-murderers and stooges of the Indian expansionists. This new government, most hated and shunned by the people, in its first public declaration made known its policy of containing the People’s War. They declared that they would “wipe out” the People’s War within a period of three months. The new government is proceeding ahead with the strategic policy of using government-sponsored goons under the name of the People’s Defence Committee, killing revolutionary cadres with surprise attacks, making false and vicious propaganda against the leadership of the People’s War, mobilising huge commando police and military forces through an unannounced, countrywide campaign of repression, arrest and torture, and making armed interventions against peaceful programmes of different mass organisations. In this way nine revolutionary combatants, including Comrades Dhanraj Pun, Suk Bahadur Rokka, Prem Bahadur Rokka, Bhim Prasad Oharti of Rolpa district, a woman Comrade, Kamala Bhatt, of Gorkha district, and Com. Padam Bahadur Rokaya of Jajarkot district, have been murdered by this government of Indian stooges (up till January 1998).

However, the more important aspect is the new and unprecedented wave of people’s support in favour of the People’s War that has been increasing together with such declarations and activities of the govern­ment. The peasants, women, students and intellectuals in their thousands are forging ahead at greater speed in the process of militant struggle. The military actions of people’s guerrillas have not only expanded widely but also attained newer heights. This has been confirmed by the recent success of higher forms of guerrilla action accomplished in Rukum and Dhading, among other parts of the country.

Amidst this people’s hatred, wrath and resistance, another drama of the formation of a new coalition within the reactionary state has begun. In the form of a meaningless debate of whether to hold a mid-term election or a special session of parliament, power struggles between the Royal palace, the USA and India are taking place. For their own exclusive domination and plunder, the Indian expansionists and the American imperialists are today openly penetrating into the reactionary groups, including the Royal palace, Nepali Con­gress, UML and the Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP). It is now as clear as the day-light that various contradictions and conflicts within the different reactionary cliques of the country are in essence the reflection of power struggles between different imperialist and expansionist camps.

From the above scenario of the People’s War and the reactionary state it becomes clear that the reactionary state is sliding towards its doom and the great process of the People’s War is heading towards its victory. The present reactionary state is the root cause of the downfall of the country and the people, and the People’s War represents the banner of the safeguard and liberation of the country and the people.

Today, the feudalists, the expansionists and the imperialists are conspiring through their Nepalese stooges, the Nepali Congress, UML, the Royal palace, RPP, etc., to let loose more intense repression against the Nepalese people and the People’s War. It is not possible to attain easy victory in People’s War. For this, wider participation and the more unified efforts of the masses is warranted. There are great possibilities and at the same time serious challenges, too, ahead of the People’s War.

Up to now the reactionary class has been adopting the strategy of disinformation campaigns politically and that of encirclement and suppression militarily against the People’s War. To counter this the People’s War is adopting the strategy of “demystifying rumour” politically and “breaking encirclement and mounting resistance” militarily.

We should not assume the failure of different reactionary political groups as the failure of the overall reactionary state. If need be, the reactionary state can do away with the present political groups as the failure of exercising extreme despotism against the people. It is only by preparing themselves to face the worst state that the revolutionaries can fulfill their historic role. The main point is to dare to win over the fear of death, through adherence to the revolutionary principles of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and commitment for the sake of the people. However arduous the path may be, the destruction of the reactionary state and the victory of the people is for sure.


A. The Party

Comrade Mao has synthesised that the three magic instruments of the new democratic revolution are the party, the revolutionary united front and the people’s army. Even though the theory may remain the same, the specific development of these instruments depends upon the specificities of historical development of different countries. Here there is no question of accommodating mechanistic thinking. It is well known that amongst the three instruments, the party is the main instrument which will give leadership to the other two.

The People’s War which has been forging ahead for the past two years has played a historic role in developing and transforming the Party itself. In a semi-feudal and semi-colonial country like ours and in the era of imperialism and proletarian revolution the process of the protracted nature of the people’s war is also a process of the revolutionary transformation of the party. We are realising with our own experience that in comparison to tens of years of idealistic talking and sermoning, the two years experience of the People’s War has played an amazing role in the revolutionary transformation of the Party.

The People’s War has played an important role in the transformation and development of the Party, such as: by strengthening the ideological unity of the Party through emotional unity; by raising the ideological and political awareness and level of the Party to a newer height through unfolding specific characteristics of the Nepalese revolution; by leading the whole Party towards the development of a proletarian revolutionary culture of renouncement, devotion and sacrifice essential for giving leadership to the people’s revolution; by raising consciousness about the dialectical relationship and the correct handling of class struggle and inner struggle; by qualitatively consolidating and expanding the relationship between the mass, class, Party and the leaders; by increasing the role, responsibility and recognition of the Party in the national and interna­tional field, etc.

It was the process of resisting against the reactionary state’s fascist repression and facing the venomous attacks of the old and the new revisionists that sped up the revolutionary transformation process of the Party. The fact that the development of the Party as the revolutionary representative of the proletarian class takes place through an intense process of class struggle and ideological struggle has been proved correct in Nepal too.

Based on the synthesis of the experiences, achievements and limits of People’s War, the Party is today stressing making lessons of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (GPCR) its point of departure so as to prevent the Party from changing its colour and to be more revolutionary and matured in the face of repressive, conspiratorial and splittist activities of the reactionaries and the opportunists. For a continuous transformation of the Party as the leader of the revolution, for defending it physically and ideologically and for expanding and strengthening its relationship with the masses there is no other scientific method in the present-day world than the teachings of the GPCR. The Party is the unity of opposites; as long as the Party exists the phenomena of unity and struggle between the opposites will also remain. The more developed and the more complex the class struggle becomes the more the Party also necessarily becomes developed and complex. In that context a maximum and continuous practice of democracy both within and outside the Party becomes necessary so as to preserve the revolutionary quality of the Party and to defeat different manifestations of revisionism and opportunism. To ensure the maximum participation of the general cadres and the labouring masses in the internal affairs of the Party is the only guarantee to save it against revisionism. Hence, the Party is able to visualise clearly through the experiences of the two years of People’s War that unless one adopts a system of generating innumerable revolutionary successors from the rank and file cadres and the masses, it will be impossible to defeat feudalism, imperialism and revisionism. The important achievement of today is the realisation of the necessity of developing consciousness and initiatives among the cadres and the masses to “bombard the headquarters” of opportunism so as to fulfill the role of giving leadership to the great revolution of the people against the exploitation and oppression of feudalism and imperialism and the betrayal and treachery of revisionism.

B. The Revolutionary United Front

Theoretically, it is obvious that the success of democratic revolution is impossible without the broad revolutionary united front between different anti-feudal and anti-imperialist classes, sections, and levels of people under the leadership of the proletariat. Similarly, it is clear that the basis of such a form of united front will be and should be the unity between workers and peasants.

However, the process of initiation and development of the revolutionary united front will be different, depending upon the situation of different countries. In Nepal, the greatest manifestation of opportunism has been on the question of the united front.

Although theoretically our Party had been forwarding a revolutionary line on this question for a long time, it was not able to put it into practice and it was also not possible without initiating the People’s War. Today the experiences of the People’s War have given a clear picture of the tactical and strategic aspects of the revolutionary united front. Looking at the historical specificities of Nepal and the experiences of the two years of People’s War, the broad united front of oppressed classes and masses, oppressed nation­alities and the people of the oppressed regions will be the concrete manifestation of our revolutionary united front. This conclusion has an immense historical importance.

This will smash the present “unity” imposed by the Hindu feudal state power based on class, national and regional inequality and oppression and open the door for building a new unity based on democratic values. Today the People’s War has had maximum impact on the oppressed classes and masses of workers, peasants, women, etc., on different oppressed nationalities and untouchable dalit castes and on the people of the oppressed regions of the far West and the Terai.

The Party regards it as a historical necessity of Nepal to give maximum importance to the question of the struggle against national and regional oppression as an integral part of class struggle and democratic revolution. Until the political, economic, linguistic, religious and cultural rights of different nationalities usurped in the course of formation of the centralised feudal state of Nepal are reinstated democratically and they are guaranteed full participation in the new democratic state, and until a great force of national unity based on democracy is created, it will be impossible to smash feudalism and imperialism.

In order to achieve that great national unity there is no proletarian outlook other than to recognise the right of self-determination, including the right to secede politically, for the oppressed nationalities. Hence our Party has firmly accepted the right of self-determination of different oppressed nationalities in order to ensure their participation as a necessary part of the revolutionary united front. Accordingly the Party has been undertaking initiatives to put into practice national autonomy as the concrete programme for the present.

In the present stage of the development of the People’s War, wherever there is an exercise of the local demo­cratic state the Party has been trying to practically apply the concept of the united front in it, and at the central level to build the united front as an instrument of struggle against class, national and regional oppression. In order to ensure the victory of the Nepalese revolution, the relevance of the Party’s concept of the united front should be propagated amongst the workers, peasants, different nationalities, oppressed castes and the people of the oppressed regions and it should be given an organisational form as fast as possible and as best as possible. At the ideological level, it is necessary to launch a more vigorous struggle against the rightist revision­ists who hanker after opportunistic alliances in the name of the united front.

C. People’s Army

The People’s War, which is forging ahead with Marxist-Leninist-Maoist slogans such as: “The people without an army have nothing of their own”, “The main instrument of the state is the army”, “In New Democratic Revolution the main form of organisation is the army and the main form of struggle is the war”, etc., is playing an important role in the formation of the people’s army. Today unarmed masses are system­atically transforming themselves into armed masses relying on the revolutionary theory that war teaches war. Using the strategy and tactics of total war in the face of the extreme unbalanced condition of the military forces of the enemy and the people, the People’s War has been moving forward the process of building the army with the Nepalese specificities.

By unfolding many concrete laws of dialectical relations between open and secret work, rural and urban activities, legal and illegal struggle, political and military activities, and mass actions and mobilisation, the People’s War has been developing military consciousness and the power of the ­people.


The historic initiation of People’s War and its successive development has opened a new door to the devel­opment of revolutionary mass organisation and the revolutionary mass movement. First of all, it has created new waves of revolutionary mass organisation and revolutionary mass movement by making a mockery of the revi­sionist cowards who refuse to see the possibilities of developing the mass movements and mass organisations beyond the limits of reformism and parliamentarism and who were indulging in the self-gratification of their monopoly over that area after the initiation of the People’s War.

Today the workers, peasants, women, students, teachers, intellectuals, dalits, oppressed nationalities and cultural activists are fueling the fire of organisation and struggle as allies of the People’s War with a new zest and zeal. The waves of the revolutionary mass movements and revolutionary mass organisations have been created throughout the country, chiefly in the principal areas of struggle, by challenging the severe state terrorism perpetrated by the reactionary state and the cowardly twaddle of the revisionist renegades.

Has the modern history of Nepal ever seen such amazing initiative of the thousands of the labouring women of the rural areas of the country who have raised the flag of revolt, defying all kinds of difficulties? Can the revisionist cowards ever imagine the great surge of women’s participation in the form of guerrilla fighters and commanders who defy death consciously and willingly? Amidst terror unleashed by government-sponsored goons, the police and the army, today thousands of labouring women from each and every remote district are participating in women’s meetings and conferences, shaking heaven and earth and fighting for their due rights. These have proved the new relationship between the People’s War and the mass movement. The fact that women are the most inspired group in the last two years of People’s War itself is indicating definite victory for the Nepalese revolution.

Today a new horizon of the peasant’s meetings, conferences and struggles has opened up throughout the country. The way the poor peasants are taking great initiative in capturing thousands of quintals of grains, crops and lands and in destroying forged bond papers of different feudal landlords of the country — behind all these the People’s War has definitely played a great role. Hundreds of thousands of peasants from the main areas of struggle are attempting to exercise new democratic power by systematically resisting the enemy’s mass killing, looting and terrorising. Have such scenes ever before been observed by the Nepalese communist movement? It is definite that by taking the path of revolutionary land reform consciously and in a planned manner in different parts of the country, the flames of the revolutionary peasant struggles will in future reduce to ashes the whole feudal relations of production. Similarly the revolutionary youths and students are marching forward, spreading organisation and struggles throughout the country, defying killing, repression, arrest and torture by the enemy. The People’s War has given new energy for sacrifice and initiative to the students by qualitatively developing among them a sense of responsibility towards their country and the people.

Along with the development of the People’s War a new consciousness for fighting for their own rights and liberation is spreading amongst many oppressed nationalities of the country such as Magars, Gurungs, Tamangs, Newars, Tharns, Rais, Limbus and Madhises. People’s War has speeded up the process of the formation of various national liberation fronts and expansion of nationality organisations. Similarly, today along with the development of People’s War, a wave of organisation and struggle has been created among dalit castes at a greater speed and on a wider scale. The dalits are today rebelling against the inhuman tyranny perpetrated upon them by the feudal state of high caste Hindus.

Similarly, the People’s War has made teachers, professors and intellectuals more conscious and active with regards to their responsibilities towards the country and the people. It is a significant change that thousands of intellectuals are coming forward to give moral support to the great historic process of People’s War and are organising against the social evils and the degeneration and tyranny of the reactionary state.

In the field of the cultural front, the People’s War is helping the revolutionary cultural activists in their initiative and alignment against the present capitalist, revisionist and neo-revisionist hypocrisy. In the field of literature, art and culture, the People’s War is directly helping in the formation of a countrywide new cultural army. The role played by the cultural front in making hundreds of thousands of people participate in the People’s War has been unprecedented.

It is not only within the country but also outside the country, particularly in India, that the People’s War has created a new spirit and confidence among the expatriate Nepalese to get themselves organised and participating in the People’s War in Nepal. The Party’s influence and work among hundreds of thousands of expatriate Nepalese has increased.

Similarly today the People’s War is playing an important role in attracting agricultural technicians, doctors, engineers, lawyers, human rights activists, etc., towards the new democratic revolution.

From these facts it becomes clear that the People’s War does not weaken mass movement and mass organisation but instead strengthens them and opens the door for their qualitative expansion and development. From the experience of the past two years, it has become clear that it is the revisionists who have been hampering the revolutionary development of mass organisation and the mass movement by parroting mass movementism but­­
worshipping reformism and parliamentarism.


Nowhere in the world proletarian movement has the success of the revolution been achieved without waging intense ideological struggle against revisionism. One of the essential conditions for the development and victory of the Nepalese revolution is also to liberate the people of Nepal from the fatal poison of revision­ism. Comrade Lenin has poignantly expressed that it is foolish to try to fight against modern revisionism only with theoretical debate. Together with ideological debate it is mainly through the development of class struggle that revisionism can be defeated. It is not so simple and trivial to fight against Nepalese revisionism, which has deeply penetrated within the Nepalese communist movement in the past five decades and poisoned the minds of hundreds of genuine people.

As has been said by Lenin, it is mainly the development of class struggle, here in the form of people’s war, along with ideological debate, that has started burning Nepalese revisionism (in Engels' words: “colossal heap of garbage”).

That today the new and the old revisionists have become more terrorised by the ghost of the People’s War than even the old reactionaries and are madly assailing it proves that the revisionist heap of garbage is on fire. Immediately after the initiation of the People’s War, the new and the old revisionist pundits violated the common morality of class solidarity and showed their true character by putting their faith in the feudalist and imperialist propaganda and by doubting and dishonouring the great sacrifice and initiative of the masses. They exposed their true self by lending their voice to the reactionary state and by trumpeting the charge of terrorism and extremism against the People’s War. It is not only the leadership of the UML that has degenerated into reaction, but also the new revisionist ringleaders who claim themselves as the uphold­ers of “New Democracy” and “Mao Thought” that have been serving the reactionary state against the People’s War and thus revealing their true character. In this context it is worth recollecting Mohan Bikram, who is getting degenerated and marginalised due to his own immoral, hypocritical and revisionist character, who outwitted all others by announcing that the People’s War would be wiped out within ten months. However, when the old and the new revisionists saw that the People’s War was spreading more and more against their wishes, they started parroting that there was a reactionary hand in promoting the People’s War, just as the Congress and the Royal palace have been accusing each other of the same. They lamented that the reactionaries were not able to repress the People’s War, which in fact has been resisting reactionary massacres and state terror.

When the People’s War entered the second year, it was transformed into the life process of hundreds of thousands of people, and it started challenging the ruling reactionary state all the more, and it also triggered the process of genuine cadres from the revisionist camp joining and supporting the People’s War overtly or covertly. Seeing this, the old revisionists openly went to give leadership to the reactionary state in order to suppress the People’s War. The new revisionist ring leaders, in order to fight for their survival, went nakedly to play into the reactionaries’ hands. They instigated the reactionaries against the People’s War by making mountains out of mole hills of insig­nificant events at a local level.

The People’s War has now entered the third year, after completing two years. It has established itself as the only revolutionary alternative in the country. For the reactionary state today the People’s War has become the greatest obstacle. It sounds ironic that along with the imperialists, expansionists, Nepali Congress, Rastriya Prajatantra Party and United Marxist-Leninist group, even the leaders of Mashal and the Unity Centre should be branding the People’s War as terrorism. But this is a fact. Nowhere and never have the elements that have degenerated into reformism and parliamentarism ideologically and politi­cally ever helped the revolutionary movement. Even after the success of people’s revolution in the future, such kinds of people will continue to oppose it. It is well known that the Bolsheviks in Russia and the Maoists in China were attacked even after the revolution by the revisionists who described themselves as communists.

Today the People’s War is scaling ever greater heights while exposing all the rubbish of the new and the old revisionists. So long as the revolutionaries are guided by Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and so long as they remain loyal to the Nepalese people and march forward to liberate the country and the people, the venomous attacks of the revisionists will not be able to stop the development of the People’s War. Rather, with the passage of time the revisionists will get thoroughly exposed. The revolution will triumph. The development of two years of People’s War has sufficiently proved this.


Before the historic initiation of People’s War the Party had pledged that “the Nepalese revolution is an integral part of the world proletarian revolution and will serve the world revolution”. Today with two years of experience this pledge has been proved absolutely correct. It is already known to all that our Party is a participating member of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM), which is striving for the building of a “New International”. Within this period our relationship with the RIM Committee and all other participating fraternal Parties of RIM has become qualitatively alive and strengthened. The initiation of the People’s War and its successive development has, at one end, given new inspiration to the participating parties of RIM, and at the other end, the Nepalese People’s War has received moral support from all the Parties. In the course of development, today, the international responsibility of our Party and the revolutionary Nepalese people has increased qualitatively.

Today our relations are not only spreading among the participating members of RIM but also among those revolutionary Marxist Parties and organisations who are outside RIM. Similarly, relations with revolutionary organisations waging national liberation struggles against imperialism and expansionism are also expanding along with the development of the People’s War in Nepal. The way the Nepalese People’s War, which is of a protracted nature, has expanded its international relations and its influence has itself become a specific manifestation of the Nepalese revolution. It is a matter of pride that the Nepalese People’s War is getting warm support, love and inspiration from millions of revolutionary masses all over the world within such a short period.

Also, just as the Nepalese People’s War is speeding up its relations with international revolution­aries, at the same speed the imperialists, expansionists and various reactionaries are hatching conspiracies and intrigues against it. In this regard the comments of particularly the ruling classes of India and the American imperialists, the world gendarmes, are worth noting. Many conspiratorial and repressive moves by these powers against the Nepalese People’s War and the Party leading it have come to the surface. These elements are mainly instigating their stooges, the ruling class and various reactionary groups of Nepal, to suppress the People’s War. This way the Nepalese People’s War has proved to be a big slap to the world imperialist system which is undergoing new economic and political crises. It is now becoming clear that the Nepalese People’s War will have a historic role in developing the new wave of world revolution in the near future.

The continuous development of the Nepalese People’s War has not only started exposing Nepalese revisionism but also world revisionism. The People’s War has been a major blow to the old and the new revisionists who have been swimming in the dirty pools of reformism and parliamentarism and have betrayed the people’s revolutionary movement all over the world. In this regard the attacks of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), the Communist Party of India and other revisionist renegades against the Maoist People’s War in Nepal are particu­larly noteworthy.

Today, in many other countries of the world, final preparations for launching a Maoist People’s War are taking place. It is a matter of pleasure for all the Nepalese revolutionaries to know that the experiences of the initiation and continuation of the People’s War in Nepal are directly helping in these preparations. Today requests have been received from revolutionary workers in different parts of the world to come to Nepal and to participate in the warfront in order to safeguard and develop the Nepalese People’s War and to learn practical lessons from it. These are the highest manifestations of the international impact of the two years of the development of the People’s War.

This way, at one end, the Nepalese People’s War has become a new challenge to international imperialism and revisionism, and at the other end, a new source of inspiration for the communist revolutionaries and the masses of the people. This situation has definitely placed more international responsibility on the shoulders of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), the revolutionary fighters and the general masses of Nepal. The leading districts, the great martyrs and all the revolutionary fighters of the People’s War in Nepal have now been transformed into the common assets of communist revolutionaries all over the world. It is this sense of seriousness and responsibility that has inspired the Nepalese revolutionaries to develop the People’s War to greater heights and to set 1iving examples of devotion and sacrifice.


The great process of the People’s War is marching forward by giving birth to powerful forces of revolu­tionary transformation in all areas of Nepalese society. The enemies and the opportunists within and outside the country are conniving with each other to repress and thwart this great process of revolutionary transformation. The revolutionary communists and the masses of the people within and outside the country are getting all the more organised on a bigger scale to safeguard and develop this great process. Thus, at one end, the two years of People’s War have opened the doors of historic possibilities, while at the other end, a situation of bigger challenges from the enemies and the opportunists has also been created.

The revolution is not following the subjective wishes of anyone, but the dialectical path of its own development. The two years of People’s War have inspired the Party to fulfil its historic responsibility of liberating the people with greater firmness, devotion and responsibility while remaining committed to the invincible principles of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism. Let us unite in the service of and for the liberation of the great Nepalese people! However difficult and challenging the path may be the people’s victory is certain.
