Maoists to buy Khanna Garment

The UCPN (Maoist) is on a drive to amass as much property as it can. The Maoist leadership and its sister organisation, the All Nepal Trade Union Federation, are preparing to buy Khanna Garment Factory at Balkumari soon after Tihar. But the party is supposedly planning a final revolution. What need does it have for fixed properties if it is heading into a revolution?

The Maoists got hold of Khanna Garment soon after they came into the peace process. Khanna Garment was put up for auction after its owner, Kewal Krishna Khanna, failed to pay the bank loan on his factory. But the Maoists occupied the premises before anyone could take part in the auction, leaving the bank helpless. It has been used as an office and residence for YCL cadres since, and over 50 party members still reside there.

The Maoist Party has now decided to use Khanna Garment as its Trade Union office, which was displaced from Paris Danda in Koteswor once that site became party headquarters. Sources say that the Maoists are now planning to buy Khanna Garment, and are seeking to collect Rs 30.5 million for the purpose.

to stop loot,
to punish all looters.

The Maoists should take this further and make it a national policy. Anyone who wants to buy or establish an industry should be allowed to collect the required amount. If anyone refuses to contribute he should be beaten up, maimed or killed , as appropriate.

When people can't tell the difference between satire and non satire then the place is in real trouble.

It is very interesting that there are people who consider that a policy of looting money from ordinary people to buy up businesses is a CREDIBLE government policy proposal for a political party.

jange #8, this often happens when you post a sarcastic comment with your imitation of a "crazy maoist". The problem is that the people who agree with you are too hostile to maoists to be interested listening to or reading anything that real Maoists actually say and are so used to only reading what they agree with that they cannot grasp satire.

Its no use complaining that "the place is in real trouble". Simply accept that people who agree with you are quite ignorant and mindless.
