Prachanda castigates ultra-nationalism
KATHMANDU: CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said that ultra-nationalism would do not yield fruit to none and therefore such craze should be countered.
Inaugurating the second national general convention of Young Communist League (YCL) in the capital city on Friday, Prachanda said that the youth should challenge the ultra-nationalism as it promotes totalitarianism.
The country would move towards fascism if such ultra-radical trends were not stopped, the former prime minister reiterated.
“Defeating regional jingoism i.e Madhesi radical nationalism and hilly radical nationalism is imperative. Both of these elements are deleterious to the country,” he argued.
Dahal added that the nationalism extending respects to all instead of disrespecting others ensures welfare of the people and country.
Moreover, Chairman Dahal said that the YCL should emerge more robust and effective. Present political change would subside if the Maoist party became weaker, he warned.
Addressing the programme, founding chairman of YCL Top Bahadur Rayamajhi urged the youths to focus on a mega campaign by being organized.
He also urged all the Maoist forces including Mohan Baidhya, Netra Bikram Chand and even Dr Baburam Bhattarai to come for unification, arguing that the local level elections proved that Maoist Centre as being the pivotal of Maoist movement.
The national general convention started today is scheduled to elect its new leadership. YCL leader Ram Prasad Sapkota said that as many as 1,000 representatives and observers were participating in the general convention. RSS
