DHARAMSHALA, January 28: The controversy surrounding the New York/ New Jersey chapter of the Tibetan Youth Congress which was temporarily shut down has ended on a positive note with the organization declaring fresh elections for the chapter.

The TYC president Tenzing Jigme and General Secretary Tashi Lamsang met with the members of the RTYC New York/New Jersey to arrive at “a mutual understanding in the best interest of the organization and its movement.”

“We now leave the past behind us and move forward in the spirit of unity. There is a lot of work to be done and Tibet needs us now more than ever. The support for our organization and the desire to see us united has been tremendous and we thank all those who have engaged with us to resolve this issue,” a statement posted on the official Facebook page of RTYC NY/NJ said.

“I praise the courage of all those who discussed the matter, thrashed out the differences as fellow Tibetans and came together for the greater common cause of Tibet. Where selfish interests and egos divided us, our common cause of freedom can unite us,” Tibetan activist and writer Tenzin Tsundue commented.

The Centrex also extended their gratitude to former members Kasur Lobsang Nyandak, Namgyal Shastri, President and members of Tibetan Community of NYNJ, the RTWA NYNJ and other organizations for their support. They also thanked the Interim Committee members, Tenzin Kalden, Chime Tsering, Tsering Palden and Pema Gyalpo for their time, positive attitude and dedication towards the organization.

With the reconciliation through, the organization announced that the election of 14th Executive Board Members of the NYNJ chapter would take place on January 31 at the Tibetan Community Hall, Woodside, NY.

The issue of the Tibetan Youth Congress the past few weeks had captured public attention in a sinister fashion causing what many labeled an ‘implosion’ within the organization. Observers and exile Tibetans also speculated that the largest pro-independence group of the Tibetan Diaspora was being crippled by internal politics and outside designs to lay it rudderless.

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 RTYCs in 2014 for ‘violation of TYC’s rules and regulations’.
