“It is normal for Beijing to give political colour to his spiritual visits” said Tibetian spiritual leader Dalai Lama on Saturday. The Dalai Lama accused China of Spreading wrong information about his visit to Arunachal Pradesh.
The Dalai Lama further said that “I wish one Chinese official would accompany me while I’m visiting here, what I’m doing, what I’m saying. They should know the reality,” .
The Dalai Lama who addressed devotees at the Tawang monastery said that his visit to Tawang and other parts of India’s northeast was purely religious in nature. He called Tawang his first home in India as it was his first halt when he escaped from Tibet in 1959. “Only time will tell. Let us wait and see,” said the Dalai Lama, who will be in Tawang until Monday despite Chinese protests over his visit.
On issue of Beijing claims about Tawang to be its own, will affect India-China ties , Dalai Lama said,”We will have to wait and see. But it is normal for China to give political colour to my spiritual visits.”
