(TibetanReview.net, Sep03, 2018) – China’s repressive policies in Tibet blatantly contradict President Xi Jinping’s own words asserting that Buddhism helps promote the Chinese culture, said President Lobsang Sangay of the Central Tibetan Administration in his remarks at the 58th Tibetan Democracy Day function at the Tsuglakhang, Dharamshala, on Sep 2. The chief guest for the occasion was Mr Kunwar Bharatendra Singh, Lok Sabha (Lower House) member of the Indian parliament.

In their official statements, President Lobsang Sangay and Parliament Speaker Khenpo Sonam Tenphel referred to the uniqueness of the Tibetan democracy for its being a gift from the Dalai Lama, the importance of maintaining unity among the Tibetan people, the continuing and worsening tragedy of the situation in Tibet under Chinese rule, the lack of response from Beijing to the Tibetan call for a negotiated autonomy for Tibet, and the determination to continue the struggle until that is achieved.

Gaden Phodrang merit awards were presented to Tenzin Tsundue of TCV Selakui for topping in Science stream among the Tibetan students in this year’s Class 12 results; Check Wangmo from Mussoorie Tibetan Homes Foundation in the Science stream and Tenzin Topden from TCV Bylakuppe in the Commerce stream.

Also, Tibetan Entrepreneurship awards were presented to Mr Penpa Tsering, Mr Tenzin Dakpa and Mr Gelek Kelsang and Mr Kunga Paljor.
