Bijukchhe stresses need for socialist republic

Bhaktapur, October 5:

The president of the Nepal Workers’ and Peasants’ Party (NWPP) and MP, Narayan Man Bijukchhe ‘’Rohit’’, has said that a socialist republic was indispensable for the well-being of the underprivileged peasants and workers in the country.

Addressing a literary symposium organised by the Nepal Bhasa Literary Conference (Nepal Bhasa Sahitya Taamujya), he said that the capitalist system and democracy would not do any good to the working class.

Stating that only in a socialist republic the means of production remains in the hands of the general people, Bijukchhe said financial equality and revolutionary land reforms were the needs of the day. He said his party did not join the government as per its commitment expressed to people in course of the Jana Andolan.

Chief of the Department of Nepal Bhasa, Tribhuvan University, Prof Dr Sundar Krishna Joshi, noted that language, culture and literature are Nepali people’s identity.
