An interview with Matrika Yadav: For a continuous revolution in Nepal

The following interview with Matrika Yadav was recorded in June 2010. Comrade Yadav was a minister in the Prachanda government in Nepal and a politburo member of Prachanda-led Communist Party, which was rechristened as the United Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) after its merger with the CPN (Unity Centre-Masal). While being a minister in 2008, Matrika Yadav was heavily criticised by the mainstream forces both within and outside the party for his active support to radical land struggles and reforms (“seizures”). In his defense, he famously said: “Prime Minister had the compulsion to ensure the survival of the government. [As a land reforms minister] I had the compulsion to advocate in favour of landless people.” Since the beginning of the year 2009, he has been involved in the process of a Maoist realignment by reviving the CPN (M). As the interview is in Hindi, we will try to upload its transcipt in English as soon as possible.
