DHARAMSHALA, September 18: The 15th Tibetan Parliament in-Exile began its sixth session here today. The speaker of the Tibetan parliament Penpa Tsering, in his opening remarks, appealed the Chinese government to resolve "the crisis inside Tibet by investigating the true situation inside Tibet and Tibetan people's aspirations.”

“China’s policy of modernization to fulfill the aspirations of Tibetans has only ruined the Tibetan identity, culture, religion and its environment,” said Penpa Tsering, adding that it clearly indicates the unwillingness on the part of the Chinese government to find a solution to the crisis in Tibet. "It would not be wrong to say that the developments and modernization in Tibet are in the interest of Chinese government itself.”

The Tibetan parliamentarians observed a minute's silence in honor of those Tibetans who have died due to self-immolations since 2009.

The speaker expressed his appreciation to the Kashag (Tibetan cabinet) for carrying out programs to create political awareness in various Tibetan communities in India and abroad. He lauded the fellow members of the Tibetan Parliament for a “successful” conclusion of the All India Lobbying Campaign that they started last year.

While thanking individuals and governments who have supported its campaigns, the speaker said the parliament shall continue to carry out various campaigns in the future also.

Recalling the Dalai Lama’s reference to CTA staff as servants of the public in a speech on Democracy Day the speaker urged all the staff members of the Central Tibetan Administration “to treat the public with respect and work towards fulfilling their problems.

The agenda for the 11 day session includes presentation of annual reports by the seven departments of the Central Tibetan Administration, the annual report and recommendations of the parliament's 5th Public Accounts Committee of the and deliberations on the current situation in Tibet.

The highest legislative organ of the Central Tibetan Administration meets twice a year to enact laws, frame rules and regulations and issue policy decisions and monitor the finances including the expenditure of the Central Tibetan Administration.

Live webcast of the session from September 18-28 is available here.
