(TibetanReview.net, Aug03, 2016) – A delegation of three exile Tibetan Parliament members from Dharamshala led by the Deputy Speaker Ven Acharya Yeshi Phuntsok called on Indian government leaders and MPs over Jul 25-28 to push for support for the issue of Tibet. It met with five Union Cabinet Ministers and 29 MPs from eight political parties, said the exiled Tibetan Administration at Dharamshala, on its Tibet.net website Aug 1.

During the meetings, the delegation urged the Indian leaders to pass a parliamentary resolution to support the exile administration’s Middle Way Approach of seeking autonomy for Tibet, not independence from China. It also called for help in urging China to resume dialogue with representatives of the Dalai Lama and the exile Tibetan administration. Besides, the delegation wanted India to make the Tibet issue a priority in Sino-India relations.

The meetings were stated to include those with MPs Mr Tamaradhwaj Sahu, Mr Ganesh Singh, and Mr Gaurav Gogoi, as well as Mr Jayant Sinha, Minister of Civil Aviation.

The other two members of the delegation were Ms Dolma Tsering and Mr Lobsang Choejor.
