Maoist Centre observes 131st ‘Mao Day’

KATHMANDU: Prime Minister and CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has described Marxism as a philosophy to make a substantive analysis of a concrete situation.

In his address to a programme organised at the party central office in Parisdanda on the occasion of the 131st birth anniversary of the Chinese leader Mao Zedong (Mao Day) today, Dahal said, “The cultivation of Marxist thoughts remains a primary challenge for the Communist movement at present.”

He insisted on the need of developing ideology being based on the evolving global context. “Today’s national and international scenario differs from that of Mao’s lifetime. Significant global changes have occurred post-Mao, with imperialism persisting through new strategies and actions. We, as Maoists, need to adapt ourselves to the given context, but unfortunately it has not happened.”

On the occasion, he said remembering Mao means analyzing and understanding ideology and revolution in a fundamental way.

He said social justice, good governance and prosperity are bases for charting out a course for socialism and the incumbent government is actively working towards that end.  “The government accords top priority to social justice, good governance and prosperity to create a foundation for socialism. We will move ahead accordingly.”

The Maoist Chair took time to say that the party will come up with a new campaign once its ongoing campaign entitled “Maoists with people: special transformation campaign” concluded. The four-month campaign is set to conclude on January 1.

Mao Tse-tung (Zedong), a great Chinese politician, Marxist theorist and a revolutionary figure was born December 26, 1893, Shaoshan, Xiangtan, China.

Maoist Centre’s vice chair Pampha Bhusal, General Secretary Dev Prasad Gurung, Deputy General Secretary Barshaman Pun were among those attending the event.
