Tibetans reject Tibetan leadership

Celebrated in Dharamsala, the heart of the Tibetan exiled community, Tibetan Democracy day or ‘mangtso duechen’ is supposed to be a grand event. In the past, Tibetans have used this opportunity to declare to the world that its decentralization of power and creation of a supposedly democratic people was a conscious choice, without violence or conflict. But this year’s celebration makes it quite clear the Tibetan people no longer have faith in the Tibetan leadership (CTA; Central Tibetan Administration). The courtyard of the Tsuglakhang temple complex, instead of being packed full of Tibetans celebrating their leadership, was mostly deserted with only less than 200 attendees. And most of them were the elderly or school children, who likely only attended since they were made to by their guardians. This ridiculously low turnout speaks volumes about how the Tibetans reject their own leadership.

1. Tibetans did not attend their own leadership’s celebration because they realize that their leadership is corrupt, inadequate and selfish. From allegations of murder, violence, and financial mismanagement, the CTA is plagued by despicable revelation after revelation, unmasking their façade of a benevolent leadership. In fact out of the 130,000 Tibetans in exile, only 60,000 voted in the 2016 general elections. That is less than half the population. This decline in support therefore is not sudden, but a long time coming.

2. The CTA use their people’s suffering to line their own pockets. They use the tragic cases of self-immolations to pander for funding from all over the world. The CTA take no firm measures to stop the practice. And the fact remains, the Tibetan people are getting so desperate for a solution that cases of such loss of life are on the increase. While the CTA continue to ‘venerate’ the poor souls, Tibetans themselves are sick and tired of the leadership making them into martyrs. They do nothing but glorify the dead for their own ends.

3. While the CTA continue to get rich off the plight of the Tibetans, their people languish in the day-to-day fight to survive. Members of the Kashag and even Sikyong Lobsang Sangay himself have numerous cars or properties all over the world. Ordinary Tibetans on the other hand struggle selling sweaters from Ludhiana on the streets with no hopes of a better future, despite the promise of a beneficial leadership.

4. The CTA dress up a political system that continues a backward theocracy as a democratic system. The CTA uses illegal means to solidify their own standing, such as gaining foreign nationality, but at the same time takes measures to prevent their own people from doing the same according to Indian or international law and being free of their refugee status.

5. The CTA promote a community based on division and segregation rather than a unified Tibetan people. They use religion to divide and conquer. The CTA recognizes a Panchen Lama different to the one accepted in Tibet, they suppress the practice of Dorje Shugden, and they even stay quiet over forced religious conversion.

6. The CTA cannot even decide which overall path to follow in regards to their own country. His Holiness the Dalai Lama advocates the middle-way approach (umaylam) in the hopes of realistically regaining some form of control over Tibet by the Tibetans. However, whole sections of the Tibetan parliament hold conferences to progress the full independence (rangzen) agenda in direct defiance of their own government’s policy.

VERY GOOD PIECE by Ashok. Yes... so what happened to Mr. President? Where on this planet do you ever see a PRESIDENT of a nation NOT AROUND during their own Democratic event, plus it is an event called "Tibetan Democracy day" that shows the world that its decentralization of power and creation of a supposedly democratic. So what on earth happened to the President of democracy? He apparently decided to ditch his own people and for what? Perhaps in search of $$$$ to make him and his ministers wealthy and safe when they cannot exploit the Dalai Lama's name anymore in the very near future. CTA's days are numbered and they are living in fear each day as their time is running short, without the Dalai Lama, who on earth knows Tibet and who is this Lobsang dude? What is so great about him? How has he impacted the world? Zero.

Surprisingly that Sikyong Lobsang Sangay not attedning this important event. It’s a democracy day why CTA didn’t take this opportunity to encourage their people through this difficult time?

Looking at the poor turnout shows that Tibetan already realised that CTA is just taking advantage on them. Look at how they segregate Dorje Shugden people is very obvious that they only use their power to gain benefit for themselves. Where can you see a leader divide their people and with this how they want to hold strong and deal with China? How to gain confident from the Tibetan?

Probably he already knew before hand it was going to be a very low turnout and do not want to be shamed. I am not sure if he attended previous year's flag raising but probably he would have predicted it. Either there are real serious problems within CTA.

The poor turnout to celebrate Tibetan Democracy day - less than 200 attendees only and mainly the elderly and children - shouts out loud to to everyone how the Tibetans in exile have little respect for their Tibetan leadership. To crown it all, even the Sikyong himself was missing from the event!

Tibetans in exile have every reason to feel disillusioned with their inept, corrupt and selfish leadership. After 60 years in exile, they are still in an economic rut, with no progress at all. Nothing has been done by the government in exile to improve their lot.

 Their fight for independence (rangzen)sees no light at the end of the tunnel. The leadership has stopped all attempts at negotiations , leaving the fight  for rangzen to the 100 over Tibetans who have committed  self-immolations . The hypocrisy and duplicity of the leadership in using every one of these cases of self-immolations to further their own ends with sponsors and garner donations from them to line their pockets are just so incredible!

That is exactly the point, Tibetans no longer believe in CTA anymore. People don't see CTA is the hope and basically there is no more hope for them to reclaim Tibet. CTA is so so corrupt and not doing their job to discuss with China. They don't take care welfare of Tibetans!

After years of broken promises and no tangible improvements in their social and economic welfare to date, can you really blame Tibetans for losing faith in and rejecting CTA? All that money pouring in meant for the welfare of Tibetans yet the living conditions of Tibetans, especially in settlements, clearly have not changed for the better. Destitution, poverty and lack of sustainability are rampant yet the leaders of CTA are living it up luxuriously especially when overseas. In fact, it is surprising that it has taken Tibetans so long to begin to speak up against CTA. Hopefully, it will translate to them demanding more accountability from CTA.

The leaders better pull up their socks. Democracy day or national is so very important to any country. Why on earth would the President not be around for such an important event? Is he ashamed of his "country" and what he has achieved or rather, not achieved for them?

He should have used this time tom talk about real democracy and patriotism. But, sadly, he's nowhere to be found!

It's obvious that Tibetan don't support and don't trust their leader anymore. Why? A leader, a Sikyong who has been giving empty promise to his people for the past 60 years. A leader who does't care about his people, but only care about the money going in his pocket. A leader who has been keeping quiet when his people killing themselves. He not only didn't stop it from continue going on, he praise them, but making statue of the suicider and put them in memorial. Why is he keeping quiet? It is because he can use them as victim card to get more money from the west. Yes, the person is LOBSANG SANGAY. The Sikyong of Central Tibetan Administration. The so called Prime Minister, the leader of Tibetan in Exile. He didn't even turn up for democracy day! Why? It is because he doesn't believe and doesn't practice DEMOCRACY! To him, there is no DEMOCRACY. Why? It is because he do whatever he wants. He take all the money that's suppose to help Tibetan in Exile into his own pocket. He ban Dorje Shugden with illogical nonsense, although Dalai Lama said we can practice Dorje Shugden. He doesn't listen to other countries opinion to have conversation to China, but to condemn China in front of other countries. So, what DEMOCRACY is he practicing? You better come down LOBSANG SANGAY, you're not qualified to be the Sikyong of Tibetan in Exile!
