New Delhi, April 28 – In the light of the recent crackdown on monks of Kirti monastery in Tibet’s Ngaba County, Students for a Free Tibet (SFT) – India has spearheaded a campaign to lobby support from Indian legislators. SFT India’s National Director Tenzin Choedon and Project Director Tenzin Jigdal are on a visit here to deliver appeal letters to Indian legislators from both the houses of the Indian parliament.

“We have urged the parliamentarians to raise the issue of Chinese crackdown in Ngaba in the Indian parliament in order to pressurize Beijing to immediately put an end to the violent crackdown and repressive “patriotic re-education” campaign in Ngaba and withdraw troops from Kirti monastery and surrounding areas”, said Tenzin Chodon.

The student group with its headquarters in New York and India office in Dharamsala also called for an unconditional release of all Tibetans arrested or imprisoned in Ngaba.

China says the situation in Ngaba is normal and “harmonious,” if that is so it must allow an independent fact-finding mission to visit Kirti monastery in Ngaba, along with members of the foreign media, the SFT said.

“The situation in Ngaba is deteriorating as Chinese authorities continue their blatant violation of Tibetans’ human rights,” said Tenzin Choedon. “Everyone we have met in the Indian Government is concerned about the dire situation in Ngaba and has expressed their solidarity with the Tibetan people.”

Over the course of 2 days, SFT – India’s delegation has met with senior parliamentarians from both Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha including Chaudhary Ajit Singh, President of Rashtriya Lok Dal and Member of Parliament, Lok Sabha; Shri Mohan Singh, National spokesperson of Samajwadi party and Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha; Mr. C.M. Chang, IAS (Rtd.) Nagaland People’s Front and Member of Parliament, Lok Sabha; Shri Satyavrat Chaturvedi, Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha; Shri Raghuvansh Prasad Singh, Rashtriya Janata Dal, Member of Parliament, Lok Sabha. Singh had raised the issue of Tibet in the last Parliament session in March 2011.

“In the coming days, we will continue visiting people of influence here in New Delhi and appeal for their help in demanding the Chinese government end the military siege in Ngaba and release all those unjustly arrested,” said Tenzin Jigdal. “We also call on governments’ around the world to intervene before more innocent Tibetan lives are lost.”

SFT – India’s delegation will meet with Indian Parliamentarians in the coming days with the support of the Tibetan Parliamentary and Policy Research Center whose liaison officer Acharya Yeshi Phuntsok, a member of the Tibetan parliament, has accompanied the delegation on its visits. The Organization will also deliver appeal letters to various foreign missions in New Delhi.
