TAWANG: Amid the ongoing dispute between India and China over the international border along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the Core Group for Tibetan Cause – India, the apex body of all the Indian Tibet support groups in India, has announced that the Tibetan refugees who are taking asylum in India will hold a peace march in support of its various demands at Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh on November 20 next.
The group has also planned to also organize a similar peace rally in Guwahati, Assam, soon.
National convenor of the organisation RK Khrimey recently called upon the Government of India to take appropriate steps to place the issues of Tibetan refugees on the global forum.
He also appealed to the government to honor the Dalai Lama with Bharat Ratna.
Condemning China, Khrimey said that the recent clashes along the international border pointed to the "sinister designs" of the Chinese regime led by its President Xi Jinping.
The members of the organization also organized a programme at the War Memorial in Guwahati in Tuesday to pay tribute to Indian soldiers who sacrificed their lives during the recent clashes on the Indo-China border.
It needs mention here that on June 15, 20 Indian soldiers and an unspecified number of Chinese soldiers were killed in violent face-off with Chinese army personnel at the Galwan Valley in Ladakh -- the most violent face-off between the two sides in several years.
