YCL to help govt control black-marketing

Kathmandu, January 23

The controversial youth wing of Unified CPN-Maoist — Young Communist League —that remained defunct for years after parties complained of its military structure today decided to help the government control black marketing.

“We will first focus on black marketeers backed by the government,” said acting chairman of Young Communist League RC Sharma following the endorsement of the organisational work-plan prepared by the youth wing’s ongoing first national gathering today.

Sharma also said the Young Communist League has also decided to launch a campaign against corruption. He said the youth wing would also launch campaigns to make the people aware about issues of federalism.

He said the Young Communist League has concluded that former senior leader of the party Baburam Bhattarai’s new force was heading towards capitalism, which could never be an alternative to the existing system.

During today’s closed session of the gathering Vice-Chairman Narayan Kaji Shrestha directed the youth to strengthen the party and get ready for a socialist revolution as envisaged by the new constiution.

Party treasurer and Minister for Agriculture Haribol Gajurel said, “Youths should play the role of a watchdog both within the party and society. Youth should not allow the leaders to commit mistakes,” Gajurel told the gathering. He also directed the youths to play the role of “red-guard.”

Party leader Chandra Prakash Khanal said the Young Communist League has created a history through its decisive role in people’s war and people’s movement and now it would focus on making the socialist revolution successful.
