Indian media outlet. Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal

The UCPN-Maoist supports its Indian counterparts notwithstanding some differences on certain issues, and opposes the security operations being carried out against them in India, Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal told an Indian media outlet.

The former rebel leader, who is more popularly known with his nom de guerre Prachanda, further pointed out the need of dialogue and negotiations to solve the problems in India rather than using force, according to a report published on Saturday’s Hindustan Times.

Talking to the newspaper over telephone from Kathmandu, he said, “This is the first time we are publicly saying that we oppose state repression and the so-called Operation Greenhunt in India. The problems of the day can be solved only through dialogue and negotiations, not through the use of force.”

He argued that the Indian Maoists are ideologically the same as their Nepali counterparts.

The Nepali Maoists that took to an armed rebellion for a decade joined the mainstream politics in 2006. They succeeded to take over the government after winning the Constituent Assembly polls in 2008. The single largest party in the CA, however, stepped down from the government following the differences with the president over the sacking of the then army chief and his subsequent reinstatement.

Meanwhile, an Indian security expert has correlated Dahal’s support to the Indian Maoists with Nepal’s volatile political developments.

“His declaration of support is related to internal political developments in Nepal,” former RAW official B. Raman said.

Dahal has been accusing the Indian establishment of influencing the Nepali politics, in one way or the other, to thwart his party’s accession to the power.

After Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal announced his resignation on July 1, Dahal has staked claim over the leadership of the proposed national unity government.
