The ideological difference between Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) and its Indian namesake Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-M), which was leveled the terrorist tag by the Indian government recently, has grown to an all time high, reports Kantipur Daily.
The paper said that this became apparent after an ‘open letter’ written by CPI-M to their Nepali counterpart was publicized Sunday.
CPI-M has accused the Nepali Maoists of working to “create illusion” among the people by cooperating with parliamentary parties like Nepali Congress and Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML).
It further charged their Nepali counterpart of deviating from the Maoist ideology by adhering to multiparty competition and aspiring for peace.
“Prachanda’s talk about multiparty competition, democracy and new constitution has only worked to create illusion among the people,” CPI-M has said in the letter, and then asks, “how different is the path opted by Unified CPN-Maoist (after abandoning the people’s war) to that of the revisionist parties?”
The Indian Maoists are also not happy seeing the Maoist combatants disarmed and kept inside United Nations monitored cantonments.
Ram Karki, who is the member of Unified CPN (Maoist) foreign department, told Kantipur that his party has not deviated from its path but is only moving ahead as per the requirements of the country. nepalnews.com June 30 09
