Kangra (Himachal Pradesh), Mar 17 (ANI): The Prime Minister of the Tibetan government-in-exile, Samdhong Rinpoche, has said that the Dalai Lama will address the 'curtains down' of 'Thank India' programme to express gratitude to India that will be preceded by a congregation of inter-faith prayers named 'Sarva Dharma Sammelan' for three days.

Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, Rinpoche said: "On March 21 there would be a conference to mark the conclusion of the 'Thank India' programme. His holiness will formally thank India for the cooperation.

After the completion of fifty years living in-exile the Tibetans wished to launch a special programme 'Thank India' last year.

The month of March this year marks two major events for Tibet - 51st anniversary of the Dalai Lama fleeing to exile in India and the second anniversary of Tibet unrest which sparked waves of violent demonstrations in Lhasa. (ANI)
