Questions for Prachanda


MAHESH MANI DIXIT


.Here are some questions Dixit wants Prachanda to answer:

1). What is the mysterious understanding reached between the palace and the Maoists in not deploying the army against the Maoists? Without even engaging the army, how could Prachanda proclaim that he had achieved a military victory?

2). By calling the Constitution of 1990 reactionary and capitalist, Prachanda shows that he is interested in bringing about a socialist revolution. Are the Maoists interested in bringing about a socialist revolution?

3). The Maoists have been publicly stating that since the UML, the ML, Masal and other leftists did not support their idea of a republic and a constituent assembly, they will now begin training their guns at them too. To counter this, should the other left parties also arm themselves?

4). How can the communist people's war be successful in a small country like Nepal, which is surrounded by neighbours that are themselves reactionaries, imperialists or opportunists? Even if the peoples' struggle were successful, how will the new order survive? Will the army stay neutral if a war breaks out? What will the Maoists do if the army decides not to stay neutral?

5). Will Prachanda's state follow a single-party system or a multiparty system? If it is going to be a single party system, then why should other communist parties help Prachanda now? If it is going to be a multiparty democracy, then why destroy the present political system?

6). Maoism, in essence, is a social and cultural revolution. Will Prachanda also follow this path?

7). What is the meaning of the friendship of Prachanda and Baburam with Kirti Nidhi Bista, Marich Man (Singh) and Hrishikesh Shah. The ex-Panchas were all friends and stooges of American imperialism. How do we analyse this friendship?

8). What are the differences and similarities between the Maoists, the ISI and the Free Tibet groups? How did the Maoists establish relationships with them?

9). If the Limbus, the Gurungs, . and the Madhesis demand total independence, will you give them that or not?.
