(TibetanReview.net, May04, 2015) – A planned meeting between Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, and the President of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Mr Amit Shah, on May 2 did not take place because of the latter’s busy schedule, reported hindustantimes.com May 2. Mr Shah was at Dharamshala to address the party’s Himachal Pradesh state executive meeting. Shah had to leave for Amritsar early to attend the Punjab BJP’s executive meet there as there was no flight service between Kangra and Amritsar, the report said.

However, the head of the exile Tibetan administration, Sikyong Lobsang Sangay, paid a courtesy visit to the party leaders who were part of Shah’s delegation. They included India’s health minister Mr JP Nadda and former Himachal chief ministers Mr Shanta Kumar and Mr Prem Kumar Dhumal.

JP Nadda is a longstanding Tibet supporter who has been closely associated with the Tibetan people for decades, said the exile administration on its Tibet.net website May 2. It said he promised continued support to the Tibetan people; that the BJP government supported the Tibetan people in their struggle for dignity and human rights in Tibet.
