Subscribe to Oneindia News

Dharamsala, Feb 24 (ANI): Tibetan exiles today marched through the streets of Dharamsala to express their solidarity with Tibetans who are still suffering under Chinese rule.

Carrying flags and chanting slogans, the protestors said we are organizing a protest to show our solidarity towards the Tibetans who are suffering still under the Chinese rule and at this situation the condition inside Tibet is getting worst.

They also alleged that China has stepped up security inside Tibet and is coming down harshly on natives there.

"So many Chinese troops are deployed inside Tibet and situation is getting intense," said Yangdom, a protester.

The protest also gains significance as the 50th anniversary of the exile of Tibet's spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, who fled to India after an abortive uprising against Chinese rule in 1959, comes close.

Tibetans living in exile contend that Chinese atrocities have increased since the Tibetan uprising in Lhasa in March 2008, whereas China blames the Dalai Lama led clique for instigating unrest in that region. (ANI)
