On the last day of Chinese President Hu Jintao’s stay in Delhi, around 35 TYC activists from Delhi and Chandigarh stormed Vigyan Bhavan Building at 10 am this morning where Hu Jintao was holding talks with CPI (M) leaders of India. Despite heavy security arrangements the activists succeeded in converging outside Vigyan Bhavan and raised ‘Free Tibet’ and ‘anti-Hu’ slogans in front of a host of national and international media presence.
The streets leading to Vigyan Bhavan though cordoned off with heavy security personals and barracks were adorned with Tibetan National Flags and anti-Hu posters by the Tibetan activists and vociferous slogans condemning Hu echoed throughout. The demonstrators who were heavily outnumbered by the security personals succeeded in escaping their way to the barricades. After more than 10 minutes of slogan raising the demonstrators were rounded-up and bundled away to the nearest police station. At the time of sending this report no report has come of the sections under which the activists have been booked.
This is the fourth time since Hu Jintao landed in India on the evening of 20th when TYC members have been able to breach Hu’s security cauldron. Presently, close to 75 TYC activists are in various Police Stations in Delhi since the launch of TYC anti-Hu campaign on 20th November. The activists hail from TYC chapters of Delhi Samyeling, Delhi Rohini, Chandigarh, Dhramshala and Herbertpur.
Fresh reports emerging from Agra confirm that TYC activists stationed at the Taj Mahal city successfully blocked the convoy of Hu Jintao on his arrival there at around 1 o’clock noon. More details are expected soon.
While the ‘string of attack’ on Hu Jintao continues, the Relay Hunger Strike vigil of TYC at Jantar Mantar, Delhi entered its fifth day. More than 70 Tibetans from the sweater sellers associations of Budh Vihar, Faridabad and Noida have lent their support to the Hunger Strike today.
The TYC Hunger Strike campaign launched on 18th of November, which has become the centripetal point of Tibetans’ protests against Hu Jintao, will continue till Hu leaves Indian soil.
