Tibetans accord warm reception to 'Flame of truth'

Flame of truth, a relay of torchlight by Tibetans was accorded a warm welcome at Rabgayling Tibetan settlement in the taluk on Sunday.

The relay has been launched from three different places — Kochi in Kerala, Dharmasala in Himachal Pradesh and Ceylon. The relay that arrived here was launched from Kochi.

Local MP Tering Yodan who spoke in Kannada to the applause of local media said the relay intends to send a strong message to the United Nations pressing for fulfilment of their demands.  The signatures will be collected in the campaign against Chinese atrocities on Tibetans and will be submitted to the United Nations along with those collected across the nation, on December 10 on account of World Human Rights Day. Most importantly, the signature campaign is for a free Tibet. Although Chinese troops have been harassing Tibetans in an inhuman manner, the Tibetans want a peaceful end to the ongoing tussle. Spiritual guru Dalai Lama should be allowed to visit his hometown, he said.

Head of Gurupura camp Yashi Chiyoden said Tibetan prime minister in exile Lobsyang Singya will visit the camp on July 30.

M B Prabhu, who represented MP A H Vishwanath at the camp for the day, praised the role played by the Indian government for a free Tibet.
