Maoists are not communist, if they are I am not: Oli

KATHMANDU: CPN (UML) leader KP Sharma Oli has said that a party that believes in the politics of violence in a democratic era cannot be a ‘communist party’.

Taking part in a programme organised by the UML Valley Special Coordination Committee here on Sunday commemorating the 63rd anniversary of the Nepali Communist Movement, Mr Oli accused the ruling party UCPN ( Maoist) of still practicing the violence of politics.

Stating that the meaning of the ‘people’s war’ as defined by the Maoists was not acceptable for other parties, the UML senior leader accused the UCPN ( Maoist) of fighting for capturing state power.

He further said that the followers of communism should fight to guarantee the rights of all caste and communities rather than any specific caste, community or the gender.

Also speaking at the programme, UML Secretary Yubraj Gyawali said his party would never forget the basic principles of Marxism and never violate the democratic norms and values.

Similarly, founder of the Communist Party, Nar Bahadur Karmacharya and UML politburo member Ramchandra Jha also shared their views at the programme chaired by UML valley in-charge Rajendra Shrestha. RSS
