Exiled Tibetans re-elect Sangay to spearhead autonomy drive

Sharing is Caring

Dharamsala, Apr 28 (ANI): Tibetans-in-exile re-elected a Harvard-educated lawyer as their political leader to spearhead a campaign to press China to grant Tibet autonomy. Lobsang Sangay will head the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) for five years. No country recognises the CTA and China has declined to talk to it. Tibetans accuse Chinese authorities of eroding their deeply Buddhist culture by clamping down on religious practice and flooding the region with ethnic Han Chinese. The election campaign was marked by bitter rivalry between candidates, which earned rebukes from the Dalai Lama.
