New Delhi, Nov 19 (UNI) Ahead of Chinese President Hu Jintao's India visit, the Core Group for Tibetan Cause will hold a rally here tomorrow morning.

The apex coordinating body of all the Indian Tibet support groups is demanding that the Government raise the vexed Tibet issue with the Chinese President. It also demanded that Mr Hu meet the Dalai Lama.

In an open letter to the Chinese President, Core Group for Tibetan Cause National Convenot N K Trikha said the Dalai Lama is in a position to act as an effective ally and partner in resolving the Tibet issue.

''The Middle way Approach of the Dalai Lama offers an ideal opportunity for the Chinese leadership to resolve the protracted issue. Such a just and speedy resolution of the issue will rebound enormously in terms of generating goodwill for China,'' he added.

The Dalai Lama has repeatedly asserted that he is seeking autonomy within the constitutional framework of a prosperous China, Mr Trikha said.

He said the human rights of the Tibetan and Chinese people were being violated.

''We are deeply appalled at the inhuman act of shooting of Tibetan refugees on September 30 by Chinese border guards.... We believe that shooting of innocent people is symptomatic of intolerance of any form of dissent, denial of freedom of assembly and worship and all other fundamental human rights.'' Expressing concern over China's continued assault on Tibetan Buddhism and its unique spiritual heritage, Mr Trikha said it was an example of continued crackdown on the Tibetan people.
