Dharamshala -- The Chinese government is
executing new plans to get Tibetan people's
support by targeting the Tibetan monastic
community in Tibet Autonomous Region, reports say.

The patriotic education campaign is a euphemism
for political indoctrination of Tibetans, which
involves denouncing His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
The Tibetan people expressed their strong
resentment against the Chinese government for
making baseless accusations against His Holiness
the Dalai Lama during the peaceful protests in Tibet last year.

The concerned departments in Tibet Autonomous
Region are soon expected to convene large
gathering of Tibetans, particularly monks and
nuns in different counties and the proceedings
would be filmed for broadcasting.

Under the new plan, the authorities have
announced a new government directive of improving
infrastructures in the Tibetan monasteries and nunneries.

The relevant departments are providing two or
three big television sets in each monastery.
Moreover, individual monks and nuns are forced to
get their rooms equipped with TV sets along with other electronic equipments.

The authorities also facilitate monks and nuns
with other basic necessities and are told that
they are being taken care by the government.

The plan aims to incorporate small monasteries
and nunneries into tourist destinations and to
use the monastic community to make propaganda on
having religious freedom and good living conditions in monasteries.

It also aims to broadcast the proceedings of the
indoctrination sessions to be held in each
monasteries and nunneries in Tibet Autonomous Region.
