KATHMANDU: Left-wingers and Marxist-Leninists are observing the 63rd anniversary of the Communist Party in Nepal on Sunday by organizing various programmes.
The communist party in Nepal was founded on April 22, 1949 with Puspa Lal Shrestha as its founding general secretary and Nar Bahadur Karmacharya, Narayan Bilas Joshi, Niranjan Govinda Vaidya as the members.
Though the UCPN-Maoist—which supports the communism developed in China by Mao Zedong is at the helm and steering the historical tasks of peace and statute at this transitional period, the intra-party rifts within the UCPN-Maoist has weaken its communist ideology.
Similarly, the CPN-UML sacrificed its communist ideology long ago and is exercising the People’s Multi party Democracy.
April 22 is also celebrated by Marxist-Leninists as the birthday of Vladimir Ilich Lenin—the Russian founder of the Bolsheviks and leader of the Russian Revolution and first head of the USSR (1870-1924).
