On behalf of the Central Tibetan Administration and the Tibetan people, Sikyong Penpa Tsering extended heartfelt congratulations to Shri Kiren Rijiju on his recent appointment as the Government of India’s Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Minister of Minority Affairs.

Sikyong wrote, “Your appointment to these pivotal positions is a testament to the exceptional leadership you have consistently demonstrated throughout your distinguished career spanning two decades. Your unwavering commitment to service and your astute political acumen have rightfully earned you this esteemed position.”

“As you undertake the responsibilities of your new positions, we wish to convey our heartfelt appreciation for your profound respect for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and your enduring friendship with the Tibetan people. Your advocacy and meaningful engagement on matters concerning Tibet have significantly contributed to shaping policies that uphold our community’s well-being. Notably, initiatives such as the Tibetan Rehabilitation Policy of 2014, with your support, have proven instrumental in providing sustenance and support to Tibetan refugees.”

While mentioning His Holiness’ deep admiration for India’s rich civilisational wisdom, notably the ancient Nalanda tradition, and His Holiness’ commitment to reviving ancient Indian traditions for the benefit of humanity, Sikyong expressed, “We remain deeply appreciative of the initiatives spearheaded by both the central and state governments in support of this noble cause.”

“As always, your unwavering support remains a profound source of strength and hope for the Tibetan people, both within Tibet and in exile.” the letter concluded.
