DHARAMSHALA: The all-India lobbying campaign initiated by the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile began its month-long campaigning in north India with a meeting with Omar Abdullah, chief minister of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The north zone Tibetan Parliamentary delegation called on the honorable Chief Minister on January 2 in the states winter capital, Jammu city. According to a release by the delegation, Omar Abdullah, during the meeting, expressed his support for Tibets cause.
The leaders of the Chinese government very well know that the struggle carried on by His Holiness the Dalai Lama is for autonomy in Tibet, Omar, who has met the Tibetan spiritual leader on several occasions, said. Presently, Hong Kong and Macau enjoy a special autonomous status under the Chinese rule and I find Chinas reluctance on Tibet hard to understand.
