Since his landing on Indian Soil last evening, Chinese President Hu Jintao faced a string of protest demonstrations by the Tibetan activists around Delhi including at the Hyderabad House this morning during the joint conference with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

This afternoon at 4.30 pm, another 10 activists from Tibetan Youth Congress yet again succeeded in breaching the heavy security cauldron of the Indian Government and converged at the Taj Mansingh Area to protest against Mr Hu who was holding talks and meeting with Indian leaders at Taj Hotel’s Jahanadabad Banquet Hall. Waving the Tibetan National Flag, the protestors ran towards the Taj entrance and raised anti-China slogans and hurled leaflets denouncing Mr Hu Jintao and China.

They also set fire to Chinese flags before they were rounded up, beaten and arrested by the security forces. At the time of sending this report the activists were locked up at the Tilak Marg Police Station and charged under CrPc u/s 107/151.

Later, Regional Tibetan Youth Congress of Delhi Samyeling along with members of the Tibetan Refugee Welfare Association, Majnu-ka-Tilla visited the detained activists at the Tilak Marg Police Station.

As predicted by experts, today’s signing of the trade based Joint Agreements between India and China, proved the truth of the believe that the present visit is a symbolic exercise in practice to woo the Indian Government and Indian business companies and not to resolve serious issues that strains the relation of the two countries. As expected Hu gave more prominence to boosting Indo-Sino trade volume to US $40 billion rather than addressing the vital issues of Tibet, the long standing border dispute, the planned diversion of major rivers, and support over India’s campaign at UN Security Council etc.

The sonorous declaration of another Sino-India friendship year will do little to mask the vicious strategy that China has pursued to undermine India’s security over the last five decades. Any comments of pragmatism of “forgetting the past and moving ahead” policy would only repeat a blunder that no nation can afford twice. Prof Brahma Chellaney, expert strategist rightly sums up China’s policy on India when he stated, “Since the Chinese strategy scrupulously avoids taking on India directly, the dragon can talk friendship with New Delhi while insidiously spitting fire through a surrogate like Pakistan and insurgent groups and quietly sharpening its claws”.

Tibetan Youth Congress, while strongly condemning the visit of Chinese President Hu Jintao to India, firmly believes that Government of India, while dealing with Chinese delegates, will not take any measure that may go against the historical truth and the aspiration of the six million Tibetans living in and out of Tibet.

We strongly condemn the visit to India of the world’s leading Autocrat, Mr Hu Jintao.
