On this occasion, Chairman of the CPN (Maoist) com. Prachand had sent a felicitation letter wishing grand success of the programme jointly organized by Solidarity Initiative for the Revolutionary Struggle in Nepal at University Institute Hall in Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal, where the spark of legendry Naxalite movement was ignited in 1970s. The felicitation letter states, "certainly, the Constituent Assembly Election has now laid a foundation of Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal and monarchy, the feudal institution, has been demolished but the Nepalese people's struggle against feudalism and imperialism is by not means over. Therefore the days ahead are more challenging.". Acknowledging the importance of proletarian solidarity at international level the letter further says, "in the present situation of augmenting imperialist offensive, mainly the U.S. we hold that the success of the proletarian revolution in a certain country has been dependent, more than before, on whether or not the proletariat class can develop internationally a strong revolutionary movement to fight imperialism." Com. Prachanda in his message also added that the present political change in Nepal was not possible had there been no strong solidarity of revolutionary, left and democratic forces and individuals the world over, in general and in India, in particular.Delivering the keynote address in the meeting after reading out the felicitation letter of Chairman on behalf of the party before the large gathering of participants who reached to the venue from every corner of West Bengal , party representative and Provincial Committee Member, com. Laxman Pant said that the victory scored by Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) is also the victory of international proletariat . He further added that this is the victory of Marxism-Leninism- Maoism, the indomitable ideology of the proletariat as well as the defeat of Khrushchevite revisionism and parliamentary- ism. It may be noted that West Bengal has been the stronghold and epicenter of revisionism in India where parliamentary communists are ruling the province over three decades. He urged all the forces that before making any opinion on Nepalese revolution they must make an overall objective assessment of present world situation adding that contrary to the favourable objective situation in the period of Bolsevik and Chinese revolutions when there was sharp inter-imperialist rivalry and world war, making imperialism and revisionism weaker, the subjective and objective situation is entirely different and adverse in our times. He said although party has achieved vital political and tactical victories, nevertheless the final victory is still far and the class struggle is not over.He further called upon all the participating parties and organization not to establish any view about party's ideology, line, policies and programmes by going through the media reports and interviews given by the leaders in the media but by scrutinizing the party's official statements and documents.
