Dharamsala, April 21: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha (RSS) leader Indresh Kumar Thursday called on China to immediately cease its repressive dealings against the monks of Ngaba Kirti Monastery in Tibet’s northeastern province of Amdo.

Speaking to media persons after visiting the venue for Tibetan Youth Congress’ ongoing relay huger strike outside Tsuglagkhang (Main Tibetan Temple) here, the RSS leader also called on China to hold dialogue with the Tibetan government in exile to resolve the issue of Tibet.

“China must at least immediately stop environmental destructions taking place in Tibet. Also it must end all religious repressions against the monks and monasteries in Tibet,” Mr Indresh said.

The Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) on Sunday launched an indefinite relay hunger strike to protest against what it called “a critical situation” in and around Kirti Monastery in Ngaba, Tibet. 15 volunteers have been staging 24-hour hunger strike on daily basis since then.

Mr Indresh said he visited the venue to show his solidarity to the hunger strikers. He was accompanied by RSS ideologue KN Govindacharya.

The delegation earlier met with representatives of major Tibetan NGOs and held discussions on wide range of pertinent issues facing Tibet.

TYC president Mr Tsewang Rigzin said his organization was pleased with Mr Indresh’s visit.

“It is very encouraging to have him here. He said that the suppression that is going on at Kirti Monastery should stop immediately. Also we discussed with them the issue of Tibet at larger scale,” Mr Rigzin said.

Describing the situation of monks at Kirti Monastery as an “ongoing crisis”, Mr Rigzin said the members of Tibetan organizations have urged the Indian delegation for their support to defuse the situation.

“We have asked them to raise the issue in the Indian parliament and - through the Indian government and through the Indian embassy in Beijing - to highlight the issue of what’s going on in Tibet,” Rigzin added.
