TYC temporarily shuts New York/New Jersey Chapter
[Thursday, December 17, 2015 19:24]
By Tenzin Monlam

DHARAMSHALA, December 17: The Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) on Wednesday announced the temporary closure of the 13th New York and New Jersey Chapter and the appointment of a four-member interim committee to handle operations during the handover.

Members of the interim committee, Tenzin Kalden, Chime Tsering, Pema Gyalpo and Tsering Palden were appointed after the TYC Centrex Executives meeting with former board members of the chapter.

“We thank you all for your continued support for the organization and we believe this decision is in the best interest of our movement moving forward,” TYC posted on their official Facebook page after the announcement.

The current NYNJ chapter of the largest pro-independence group of Tibetan Diaspora will have to handover all the assets and authorities of the New York office to the interim committee before January 20, 2016.

The TYC Centrex in their press release announced effective immediately from December 16 till the appointment of new executive members, no organization will be permitted to use the TYC’s name, flag, stamp, emblem and letterhead.

According to the press release, the RTYC NYNJ on July 21 wrote a letter mentioning, “Since the TYC Centrex is not ready to bring any change in the political stand. The RTYC NYNJ will neither be able to exist and function under their direct command nor will associate with the Centrex. ”

Earlier this year in March, the chapter’s President, Ngawang Palden was suspended for failing to hold up the objectives of the TYC and being an open supporter of Middle Way Approach, the official position of the Central Tibetan Administration.

In 2013 Working Committee meeting, eight RTYCs – Bengaluru, Bylakuppe, Mundgod, Hunsur, Kollegal, Dalhousie, Pandoh and Ladakh - demanded TYC change its stand of independence to Middle Way Approach. This led to their expulsion as a member in 2014 for ‘violation of TYC’s rules and regulations’.
