DHARAMSHALA, September 16: Ngodup Tsering, secretary of the Department of Education, has been appointed with unanimous approval from the Tibetan parliament after his nomination was presented by the Tibetan PM Lobsang Sangay.

On his appointment as the new minister of Department of Education, Tsering expressed his happiness over unanimously appointed as the new minister and said that he will work upon successfully fulfilling the future projects of the department.
