An unenthusiastic conclusion

close seEyewitness account of the CPN-Maoist 7th National Congress

7th National Congress of the CPN-Maoist that began on June 9, concluded on Tuesday, June 15.

Before the beginning of the Congress,  it was told that, 1200 delegates, 400 observer and 300 volunteers will  attend  the Congress. But the number was near about 2500. Only the members elected by the state committee were  qualified to join the congress.  But,  the rules and regulations were violated.  It looked like a national election Campaign, not the National Congress of a revolutionary party. Family members and relatives of the top party leaders, who never  joined class struggle and who were not even the party members, also joined the party congress as the party representative, while the genuine cadres were not allowed to join the Congress. In fact, some of the representatives and observers were the pocket members of the top leaders.

It is a matter of surprise that party members of Prachad’s party- UCPN (Maoist), also attended as the delegate of the CPN-Maoist. One of them openly told that he was invited as the representative of the National Congress, by the Party Central Office of CPN-Maoist.  Not only this,  the INGO holders and donors also were nominated as the representative and observers  by the party central office. Indeed, it was not easy to find out that who was participant and who was not.

 Supporter of ‘Free Tibet’ also were invited as the guest in the inaugural ceremony. Chinese and the  North Korean ambassadors were the prominent guests in the inaugural ceremony. The representative of RCP-USA and PCM, Italy also were present in the National congress.  They delivered their message in the closed session.  Comrade Phlao delivered the greeting message on behalf of his party PCM, Italy. He looked very enthusiastic.  Comrade Robert of RCP, USA   stressed on his party’s manifesto the ‘new synthesis’.

 Members of the Website parties and media persons also were invited as the Fraternal Party representatives.  CPI ( M-L) Naxalbari, communicating  his dissatisfaction regarding the name of the guest parties,  was not present in the Congress. The analytical   greeting message of CPI(M-L) Naxalbari was very appreciative.  CPI (Maoist)  did not send any delegate or message. Perhaps he was not invited.

The house was divided into 21 groups. There was a hot debate and discussions regarding the question of party’s ideological line.  Most of the delegates of the Congress stood on the side of Protracted People’s War. But ‘People’s revolt based on the foundation of the Peoples war’ was passed as the official line. The adopted party line is not clear in its direction. It needs clarity. It is the sign of neo-eclecticism. The ‘People’s revolt based on the foundation of the Peoples war’ was not the voice of the majority, it was not the voice of the house. One thing was very noticeable, that the house discarded the ‘politics of identity’ with a vast majority, that the Comrade Kiran’s document had given more importance.

Some of the team leaders, including the Bureau of former PLA, which was named as People’s Volunteers Organization, were not satisfied with the line adopted by the party, and raised the protest voice. They  wanted  to decide the line question with voting. But they were not allowed to put their opinion on the congress. In fact, it would be better to call it a plenum than a National Congress. Really,  it was a desperately concluded Congress.  Just a formality was done.

 Most of  the cadres, who had joined the Ten years People’s war, and the young generation was very enthusiastic. But the  leadership was not competent to follow the spirit of the cadres. The leadership could not succeed to meet the spirit of the cadres. Most of the representatives of the congress, were dissatisfied with the adopted party line and formation of the central leadership. They wanted new faces in the central leadership.

How the CPN-Maoist moves forward, is the matter of wait and see. But, it is clear that the party has divided into two faction-the follower of Protracted People’s War and the followers of official line -‘People’s revolt based on the foundation of the Peoples war’.

Yes, the 7th national Congress of CPN-Maoist is over. And the conclusion is: the 7th Congress of CPN-Maoist could not   enrich any ideological and political strength to the cadres. It was an unenthusiastic conclusion.

    Yes, it is true: ‘Family members and relatives of the top party leaders, who never joined class struggle and who were not even the party members, also joined the party congress as the party representative, while the genuine cadres were not allowed to join the Congress. In fact, some of the representatives and observers were the pocket members of the top leaders.’
    No matter, it is the totally failed leadership.
