(TibetanReview.net, Jul31, 2015) – The Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC), a grassroots Tibetan organization which campaigns for Tibet’s independence from Chinese rule, concluded on Jul 29 its four-day, 46th annual Working Committee Meeting in New Delhi with a lobbying campaign targeting Indian political leaders and foreign embassies.

Groups of members representing delegates from its regional chapters across India and other countries visited Indian political leaders and foreign missions in the Indian capital to garner support for the Tibetan campaign in the backdrop of the recent tragic death in Chinese ruled Tibet of the prominent Tibetan political prisoner Tenzin Delek Rinpoche and the surrounding circumstances.

Among Indian leaders, the TYC members called on the Minister of State for Home Affairs Mr Kiren Rijiju, senior BJP legislator Mr Shanta Kumar, MP Arun Kumar and MP Tarun Vijay. Groups of TYC members also called on representative-officials from Japan, Germany, the European Union and the United States.

Some 130 executive members from 35 regional chapters of the TYC from around the world took part in the meeting which was held at the Samyeling Tibetan settlement located on the bank of Yamuna River. The meeting passed a 25-point resolution which focused mainly on strategies to enhance the organization’s unity and highlight Tibet’s status as an independent country before China’s annexation.
