The next all India Tibet supporting groups’ conference is beginning at Guwahati of  northeast India  on Monday, where over 180 representatives from various Tibet supporting groups of India are expected to participate. The two-day conference starting on 2 November

2015 in the capital city of Assam is poised to provide an unique platform for the participants ‘to deliberate, discuss and strategize on strengthening the Tibetan movement in India’ for a peaceful resolution to China-Tibet issue.

We are pleased to inform you that the Core Group for Tibetan Cause, an apex coordinating body of Tibet Support Groups all over India is convening the 5th All India Tibet Support Groups Conference at Guwahati this time in celebrating the 80th birthday of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama,” said RK Khrimey, chairman of the conference organizing committee.

Addressing the media persons at Guwahati Press Club, the former Indian lawmaker from Arunachal Pradesh elaborated that the purpose of the conference is to highlight the dim, ever growing repressive implementation of Chinese policies and the worsening situation of human rights situation inside Tibet.

The conference will also focus upon the intense security between India and China in keeping view of Tibet’s vital existence. Despite New Delhi’s regard to bilateral relationship with the Beijing authority the latter has tried every effort to derail the virtues of this relationship with countless incursions in recent times,” added Khrimey.

JigmeyTsultrim, a member of the organizing committee, pointed out that the Chinese excessive exploitation of Tibetan natural resources and environmental destruction causing a serious threat to the Asian ecology would also be highlighted in the meet.

In the 1960s there were only dozen of dams (over Brahmaputra river inside Tibet) but now more than 22,000 hydro projects and dams have been constructed,” stated Tsultrim adding that being Tibet as third pole of world, it provides water to 3.1 billion population of India, China, Bangladesh with other neighboring countries.

This means, around 46,000 glaciers which is extended over 1.5 lakh square meter and because of Chinese policy of destruction has now resulted in melting of more than 8740 glaciers and formed in lakes.

Out of this, 204 lakes are in great danger of getting burst in any coming circumstances which may prove fatal to India more than any other countries,” elaborated Tsultrim.

The issue of recent environmental disasters in Assam from the Brahmaputra flood water is nothing but the result of China’s individualistic approach of gaining profit by harming other’s benefits and resources, asserted the India Tibet Coordination Office activist.

Sonam Lhundup, another member of the organizing committee informed that Dr Lobsang Sangay, the democratically elected political head of Central Tibetan Administration at Dharmashala would also grace the event.

Our effort would also be highlighting the significance of Tibet’s history and culture with India while expressing gratitude towards His Holiness Dalai Lama for his vision, leadership and achievements in the field of secular ethics and human values, inter-faith dialogue and harmony, universal responsibility, peace of mind and happiness,” added Lhundup.
