Our Party is badly perturbed by the news we come to learn that Ceylon Communist Party (Maoist) leader and once General Secretary of the Party, Ajith Rupasinghe, comrade Surendra passed away on 3 April 2017. He was born in 1943. Comrade Surendra had assumed the leadership of the Ceylon Communist Party as the General Secretary after the death of Comrade N. Sanmugathasan . Later on, he named the party Ceylon Communist Party (Maoist).
Comrade Surendra had supported the people’s war in Nepal and that support remained intact until the then leadership of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) abandoned the revolutionary line. Surendra had joined the Communist Movement while studying in the USA and became a revolutionary activist there. He always stood firm in the side of the revolutionary line in the international communist movement.
Ceylon Communist Party had been one of the participant party of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement RIM. As a participant party of the Maoist regional organization CCOMPOSA (Coordination Committee of the Maoist Parties and Organisation), Comrade Surendra had participated in this organization. He tried to unify the Maoist forces in Sri Lanka several time which had undergone splits among small groupings. His Party had worked in the areas of the poor people in the tea garden of the hilly area of Ceylon. Comrade Surendra was an outstanding leader came out of the Singhala nationality to support the Tamil people and demanded the right of self-determination of the Tamil nationality. We express deep condolence on the death of Comrade Surendra, we express our solidarity to the Maoist of Sri Lanka.

Five main points to take into account
This neo-colonial parliamentary system of Nepal is a part of capitalist post-imperialist world system. This system is horrendous. This is fostering nurturing neo-colonial comprador political power in Nepal and all oppressed nations in the world. This system leads the people nowhere but horrible destination, the destruction of people's right, sovereignty and democracy.
This comprador capitalist parliamentary system has to be overthrown with a replacement of another system, a system which is incomparably superior to the present one, where there will be complete abolition of any kind of exploitation over human being by human. This is Scientific Socialism.
Overthrowing of this system is possible. This epoch making act demands ideologically, politically, organisationally a disciplined and a sound party of the communist. This kind of party that is equipped with historical dialectical materialism, scientific socialism and socialist economic system which in sum is Marxism-Leninism-Maoism can lead such revolution.
This party to lead revolution in Nepal and advance to scientific socialism is Communist Party of Nepal (CPN), and its leadership, the cadres and the proletarian internationalist people whose glorious struggle in this country has made several leaps, breakthroughs and also passed through many catastrophes have taken up this historical responsibility. This party has a revolutionary line, strategy and tactic to lead communist revolution.
This line, the strategy and tactic for the scientific socialist revolution to accomplish in Nepal is the strategy of Unified People's Revolution.
