YCL plans to rope in party activists for

Kathmandu, May 6:

The Young Communist League said today it planned to massively mobilise its cadres in ‘economic revolution programmes’ to solve the problem of unemployment and backwardness.

Addressing a press conference organised here today, YCL chairman Ganesh Man Pun said they would come up with ‘Youth Mission for building new Nepal’ within a month and would soon complete at least one exemplary work in each of the states carved out. The CPN-Maoist has divided the country into 14 federal states mostly along the ethnic lines.

The youth wing of the CPN-Maoist also plans to mobilise youths in managing traffic problems around the country and its efforts to solve the problem of hooliganism, according to a press release issued today during the press conference.

“We will conduct broad interactions with all the stakeholders and will do comprehensive survey and engineering works. Once the consensus is forged, we will involve our youths into construction works,” Pun said when asked what kinds of works he planned to accomplish with the help of youths.

Pun also read out 12-point decisions of the YCL that were made during its seventh meeting concluded yesterday in the presence of Maoist supremo Prachanda.

“The YCL did a commendable job to check conspiracies of the reactionary forces. If the YCL was not there, the party would have lost the CA election to the reactionary forces,” Pun quoted Prachanda as saying.

He said his organisation had decided to raise people’s participation in their anti-corruption activities and prepare conducive environment for prosecuting culprits.

Asked if they planned to reform themselves in the face of growing outcry against their activities, Pun said, “The YCL has bolstered the sense of security among the people. We are a purely political organisation and our activities were approved by the Nepali people and the international community.”

He said the YCL would continue playing its present roles and would never dissolve the organisation as demanded by the other political parties.

YCL central-in-charge Sonam said the YCL would always play the role of vanguard in protecting nationality and ensuring republicanism.

On the occasion, the YCL felicitated newly elected Maoist CA members Uma, Bhujel, Nar Bahadur Bista, Chandra Bahadur Thapa, Jun Kumari Thapa Magar, Kiran Kumar Rai, Sabitri Dura Gurung, Khuma Subedi, Devendra Prasad Patel, Jagat Yadav and Santosh Kumar Chaudhary.
