DHARAMSHALA, June 18: Kalon Tripa Dr Lobsang Sangay will be leaving for New Delhi tomorrow for an onward journey to Australia, his first after assuming office in August last, according to the official website of the Central Tibetan Administration.

The website said that Dr Sangay is scheduled to meet “some important officials” in the Indian capital without giving names, before flying off to the island continent on June 23.

Last week, addressing the 8th annual conference of the Tibetan settlement officers, Dr Sangay had said that he will continue to travel despite criticisms from certain sections of the society.

In less than one year as the elected leader of the Tibetan people, Dr Sangay has visited North America and Europe on three separate occasions and Japan once. During his visits, he has met with elected leaders and the Tibetan public, apprising them on the prevalent critical situation inside Tibet.

He also toured many of the Tibetan settlements in north and east India.

“I am aware of criticisms of my busy travel schedule from certain sections of the society,” Kalon Tripa said. “But I will continue to travel. To meet people and seek their help and support for the plight of our brothers and sisters inside Tibet and also to find help for those of us in exile.”

The CTA report said that Dr Sangay will be meeting members of the Australian parliament and the media during his June 23 – July 2 visit.

“During his visits to Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane, Kalon Tripa will meet Members of Parliament, members of think-tank, sponsors, and the media. He will also speak to the Tibetan community based in different parts of the country in Brisbane on 1 July,” CTA said.

Dr Sangay will return to Dharamshala on July 2.
