Press Release

The coterie of fratricidal, genocidal, corrupted and National betrayer Gyanendra Shahi, who staged an infamous Narayanahi Massacre under a deliberate design of imposing medieval feudal autocracy against the great Nepalese people of the twenty first century advancing for full democracy i.e. republican system, has finally exposed its ugly face before the masses. Gyanendra Shahi, through his so-called royal proclamation at 10 O’clock this morning, is not only meagerly exercising to slander the entire parliamentarian political parties and civil society, but also is exhibiting feudal fascist brutality of blood-bathe against the country and the masses. To talk of nationalism, democracy, patriotism and sovereignty by the one, who is most infamous feudal clique in corruption, smuggling, killings and terror, cannot be anything other than a surprising show against Nepal and the Nepalese people.

The great Nepalese people will never bow down before the threat of history’s ‘ghosts’ that dream of feudal autocracy in the support of foreign imperialism and expansionism. Replying by tit for tat, the day of building People’s New Nepal by throwing the feudal autocracy, responsible for the grievous situation of the country and people, into the garbage of history, has already come. It is beyond a doubt that the Nepalese masses that have shown their identity through the mass struggle of 1990 and 9 years’ of people’s war are capable to fulfill their historic task of establishing republic. Our party, as a leadership of the great People’s War waged for a radical transformation of the Nepalese people, utterly denounces the so-called proclamation of Gyanendra Shahi. Our party pledges to fight till last for the emancipation of the country and people and complete overthrow of feudal autocracy. Our party forcefully appeals the entire political parties of the country, intellectual masses, civil society and the masses of different levels and sects to create a storm of countrywide rebellion unitedly under a minimum common slogan of people’s democratic republic and constituent assembly against this last lunacy of the feudal clique that has lost its necessity and credibility in the history. We also would like to clarify, in this juncture, the fact that our party is prepared to go ahead by establishing co-work and a broad front with all that are against feudal autocracy.

The flame of the People’s War will go on blazing till the so-called Royal Army that has been defeated in all the fronts with the great People’s Liberation Army, under the leadership of our Party, is dissolved and the arms are surrendered to the People’s Liberation Army. We especially appeal the entire jawans and officers working under the so-called Royal Army to defy the so-called royal proclamation, which has come in the gesture of foreign reaction against the country and people, revolt from there and implicate unitedly with the People’s Liberation Army in the great task of protecting own parents, brothers and sisters. Not the feudal clique of Gyanendra Shahi but the great Nepalese people will safeguard Nepalese independence and sovereignty, and geographical integrity.

As an immediate opposition to today’s so-called royal proclamation, which is trying to push the Nepalese society of 21st century back to the 15th, our party heartily appeals all the political forces and broad masses to shutdown Nepal from February 2, tomorrow, to 4. We also would like to clarify from this statement that by discussing with pro-people forces in the days to come the resistance will be heightened more strongly. Also, we heartily call upon the entire pro-people forces of the world to raise voice against this autocratic step and in the favor of Nepalese people’s democratic movement.
