DHARAMSHALA, May 28: Top leaders of the northeast Indian sate of Meghalaya met with a Tibetan parliamentary delegation on a multi-state lobbying campaign and pledged political support to resolve the Tibetan issue.

The three-member Tibetan parliamentary delegation, led by former speaker Pema Jugney, were on the eighth and final leg of their North-East zone ‘All India Parliamentary Lobby Campaign.’

On May 24, the Tibetan MPs were received by His Excellency the Governor of Meghalaya, Ranjit Shekhar Mooshahary at the Raj Bhavan in the state capital Shillong. According to Dhardon Shalring, MP and member of the delegation, Governor Mooshahary, after being briefed at length about the current crisis in Tibet, said that Tibetans “must never lose hope.”

“Hope is what will keep you all going and victory will be an eventuality,” Dhardon quoted the Governor, who served as the former Director-General of National Security Gaurds and the Border Security Force as saying.

“The Governor expressed appreciation for the ‘tenacity, arduousness and the resolve of the exile Tibetans’ and referred to them as ‘true crusaders of the movement,’” she added.

The Tibetan delegation met with Deputy Chief Minister of the State, Rowell Lingdo, the incumbent acting Chief Minister. According to Sharling, Lingdo condemned the “atrocious policies of the Chinese Government” and said that China must ”realise, respect and respond to the true aspirations of the Tibetan people and the Tibetan leadership’s call for dialogue to resolve the crisis.”

The Tibetan MPs also called on the Deputy Speaker of Meghalaya Legislative Assembly, Sanbor Shullai, who reiterated his support for the Tibetan cause. He noted that the Indian Government “should treat the Tibetan issue as a special issue and raise it during diplomatic engagements with the Chinese leaders.”

Over five days of intensive lobbying, the Tibetan delegation held meetings with leaders of prominent political parties and bureaucrats in the State and appealed for a cross-party support for the Tibetan political movement.

The Tibetan MPs further appealed the Indian leaders for “substantial and public expressions of solidarity and support amid the unprecedented spate of self-immolations by Tibetans inside Tibet and the subsequent deepening crackdown by Chinese Government.”

A candlelight vigil was also held in Shillong on May 23 in solidarity with the sacrifices being made by Tibetans inside Tibet.

The North-East zone ‘All India Parliamentary Lobby Campaign’ concluded their lobbying efforts after a series of successful lobbying campaigns in West Bengal, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Sikkim, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, and Meghalaya.
