The Dalai Lama escaped to India in 1959 as Chinese troops marched into Tibet and opposition to Chinese control in the area grew. He was then granted political shelter by Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, and he has since resided in McLeodganj, Himachal Pradesh. On Monday, the Dalai Lama made it clear that Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, is his “permanent residence” and that he has no plans to return to China.
Following the skirmish between Indian and Chinese troops earlier this month in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh, he was reportedly asked to send a message to China on Monday and stated that “things are better in general in Europe, Africa, and Asia.” “China is also flexing its muscles.
But going back to China serves no purpose. In a video shared by ANI, the Dalai Lama can be heard saying, “I prefer India… greatest place. “Pandit Kangra Nehru. This place is where I live permanently,” he added. The conflict on December 9 in Tawang is the first since both countries’ military engaged in a standoff in the volatile Galwan region of Ladakh in June 2020.
