Top Chinese leader underlines separatism curb during Tibetan prefecture visit

Wang Yang a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference National Committee.

(TibetanReview.net, May30’19) – As authorities launched a renewed push to strengthen a ban on pictures of the Dalai Lama in Karze (Chinese: Ganzi) Prefecture of Sichuan Province ahead of the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader’s 84th birthday, visiting top Chinese leader Wang Yang has “underlined efforts to curb separatists, maintain normal religious practices and alleviate poverty”, according to China’s official Xinhua news agency May 30.

The report said Wang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference National Committee, made the remark after visiting the ethnic Tibetan prefecture from May 25 to 27.

Wang was stated to have instructed local authorities to improve the management of temples and counteract what he called infiltration by hostile foreign forces.

He was also reported to have urged local authorities to improve the quality of poverty relief projects, upgrade local infrastructure and public services and allocate more resources to the areas suffering absolute poverty.

According to the Tibetan Service of rfa.org May 29, local officials had ordered Tibetans to speak to visiting high-ranking Chinese leaders about “big improvements in their living conditions” thanks to government subsidies. Previous reports have said Tibetans keeping pictures of the Dalai Lama were being denied state subsidies and other kinds of benefits.
