Tibetans in India Protest Chinese Leader's Visit to India


Tibetans living in India are preparing to demonstrate in New Delhi during the four-day official visit by Chinese President Hu Jintao that begins Monday.

Members of the Tibet Youth Congress said they want to highlight Tibet's issues during the visit.

Tibetan organizations and Tibet support groups said that, in addition to the planned protests in New Delhi, they also plan demonstrations in other parts of the country.

Indian authorities have reportedly asked Tibetans to leave the city center and told students to stay inside their dormitories during Mr. Hu's visit. They said they will take appropriate action against those who disobey the order.

In the northern Indian town of Dharamsala, Tibet's parliament-in-exile called on the Chinese leader to meet with Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, to discuss the future of Tibet.
