Manipur Maoist suspects Dalai Lama Visits; says India is using the spiritual leader

Imphal, March 12: Maoist Communist Party of Manipur  (MPCM) in a statement has called on the people of the state on why the Tibetan Spiritual leader Dalai Lama has been invited in the inaugural session of the 105th Indian Science Congress which is scheduled to hold at Manipur University from March 16 to March 20. In a statement the rebel group said that the Indian authority had ordered restriction to the participation of the Dalai Lama’s 60th anniversary in India under the title “Thank you India” which is scheduled to hold from March 31 to April 1 Thyagaraj Sports Complex and Rajghat Ghat , New Delhi.
The anniversary was prepared in a grand way. Former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, Former Home Minister LK Advani and Union Minister of state for Home Kiren Rijiju have consented to attend the celebration. However in view of the souring Indo-china relationships , both the center and state government had ordered not to take part in the celebration, the Maoist statement said. The matter has been published at many Indian newspapers and leaving such an issue by the University authority is unfortunate, said the Maoist statement.

The statement further said that the spokesperson of Dalai Lama Sonam Dagpo had also stated that there have been major changes in the 60th anniversary of Dalai Lama’s stayed in India. It also quoted the Indian Foreign Secy. Vijay Gokhle statement to Cabinet Secy PK Sinha which said that – The propose period will be a very sensitive time in the context of India’s relations with China. Participation by senior leaders of government functionaries, either from the state government or central government is not desirable, and should be discouraged.
Now the question is why the Dalai Lama has been invited in the inaugural function of the Indian Science Congress at Manipur, Maoist said. The rebel called the visit of the Dalai Lama as a conspiracy. Maoist further said that the if Dalai Lama real struggle is for liberation of Tibet then the outfit will support the leader. But the recent development showed that Dalai Lama has been utilised by the Indian authority as a mere puppet for political purposes. And Maoist seriously note the plan and will have a keen watch to the Manipur University authority.
