The meeting took place on Oct 8 in New Delhi and over Sep 30-Oct 1 in Shimla, capital of Himachal Pradesh state in which Dharamshala is located, said the exile Tibetan administration on its Tibet.net website Oct 14.

Meeting with India’s junior Home Minister Mr Kiren Rijiju and Home Secretary Mr Anil Goswami in New Delhi, she submitted a memorandum listing some of the major problems being faced by the exile administration in the Tibetan settlements. Tibet.net said Secretary Goswami promised to examine and address the problems outlined in the memorandum.

She was also reported to have met with the Joint Secretary of India’s Home Ministry (Rehabilitation) to take up with him socio-economic problems being faced by Tibetans, including Tibetan nomads living in the geographically hostile Jangthang area of Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir State.

Before New Delhi, Ms Gyari was reported to have called on Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and other key state leaders, including Health and Revenue minister Mr Kaul Singh Thakur, Food civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Minister Mr GS Bali, Urban Development Minister Mr Sudhir Sharma, Vice Chairman of HP Tourism Development Board Mr Vijai Singh Mankotia, Chief Secretary Mr Prathasarthi Mitra, and the spokesperson of the Bharatiya Janata Party Mr Ganesh Dutt.

They were reported to have discussed some important issues such as India’s policy on Tibetans living in the country, rehabilitation of Tibetans in Shimla, forest land issues threatening the homes of many Tibetans at Mcleod Ganj, and the upcoming Himalayan festival in Dharamshala. The officials were reported to have assured all possible help. Ms Gyari had taken up these issues in previous visits to Shimla also.
