Dalai Lama’s visit to Arunachal will take place as scheduled: Rijiju

The week-long visit of Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama to Arunachal Pradesh next month will take place as scheduled, notwithstanding objections by China.

Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said that the Dalai Lama will be in the north eastern state from April 4 to 13. He said the Dalai Lama will be a guest of the Arunachal Pradesh government and as a devotee, he will meet him in Tawang.

During his visit to Tawang, the spiritual leader will be hosted by the Buddhist Tawang monastery where he will be meeting his followers.

Mr Rijiju said the Dalai Lama is going to visit the state as a religious leader and there is no reason to stop him as his followers are demanding he should come. Asked about China’s objections, Rijiju said the central government is run by a nationalist party which considers the country’s interests first.
