"We Tibetans are looking for a legitimate and meaningful autonomy, an arrangement that would enable Tibetans to live within the framework of the People’s Republic of China."

China keeps a close watch on all my movements, says Dalai

New Delhi -- The Dalai Lama Saturday lashed out
at China for "closely scrutinising" all his
movements and accused it of double standards on the Tibetan issue.

"All my movements are seen as negative by China,"
the Dalai Lama said, referring to his recent
Tawang visit. He was talking to reporters after
delivering a speech at the "International
Conference on Exploring Tibet's History and
Culture," organised by Delhi University and the
Central University of Tibetan Studies.

Taking a dig at China, Dalai said that wherever
he went, people referred to him as the Dalai Lama
of Tibet and not as the Dalai Lama of China. "I
think the Chinese want me to be called the Dalai
Lama of Chinese Tibet," he said.

Asked whether Tibet would be on the PM’s agenda
during his US visit, he said, "The government of
India has helped us immensely for the past 50 years."
