(TibetanReview.net, Jul17, 2014) – A delegation of MPs from the exile Tibetan parliament at Dharamshala, India, is meeting with recently elected Lok Sabha, or Lower House, MPs in the Indian parliament for among other purposes to get them to re-establish the All-Party Indian Parliamentary Forum for Tibet. The delegation had already met with a number of political leaders in the parliament known for their support for the Tibet issue, according to a statement on the exile Tibetan administration’s official website Tibet.net Jul 16.

The statement said the Indian leaders reassured their support for the Tibetan struggle, including through joining an All-Party Indian Parliamentary Forum for Tibet in the new parliament and by encouraging fellow MPs to do so. The meetings included those with Dr Prasanna Kumar Patasani of the Biju Janata Dal Party, a veteran of many Tibet related conferences, on Jul 14. Other key leaders included Mr Ajit Singh of the Rashtriya Lok Dal, Mr Jayant Chaudhary, Mr PD Rai of the Sikkim Democratic Front, Dr Shashi Tharoor of the Indian National Congress, and Mr Sharad Yadav of the Janata Dal United.

The delegation, made up of Geshe Monlam Tharchin, Mrs Dolma Tsering, Acharya Yeshi Phuntsok, Mr Choekyong Wangchuk and Mr Lobsang Yeshi, offered greetings and sought support for the Tibetan struggle during its meetings with Indian MPs.
