29th April 2022, New Delhi: A special delegation of Bharat Tibbat Samanvay Sangh (BTSS) under the leadership of its Central Convener Shri Hemendra Singh Tomar met with the Hon’ble President of India Shri Ram Nath Kovind.
During this meeting, the delegation briefed and highlighted His Excellency about the work and goals of Bharat Tibbat Samanvay Sangh. On this occasion, a seven-point memorandum was submitted by the delegation to His Excellency. BTSS Central Convenor Shri Hemendra Singh Tomar read all the proposals in turn to His Excellency and clarified his intentions.
During this meeting, His Excellency listened carefully to all the proposals, while also giving assurance for which departments related to which proposals should be sent. He said that some of these proposals are related to the Ministry of Home Affairs and some proposals are related to the Ministry of Defence, so he will send his recommendations to the respective ministries.
During this 25-minute meeting with His Excellency, he was ready after knowing in advance about the work of Bharat Tibbat Samanvay Sangh and while discussing the issue of Tibet and Kailash, His Excellency gave suggestions to create a mass movement to create public awareness and bring forward the youth power. He said that this work of the Sangh is going on with very big objectives, in which it is also good that it is being led by a senior campaigner of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, BJP’s Organization Secretary and former Governor, Prof. Kaptan Singh Solanki.
In the seven-point memorandum submitted to His Excellency, it has been demanded that both the Houses of the Parliament of India had passed a resolution on 14 November 1962 that every part of the land which had been fraudulently occupied by China would be taken back. Now 60 years later, this strong government at the Centre should take concrete steps towards fulfilling the above resolution.
On another point, it has been demanded that the Government of India should now try to increase the quota of pilgrims for Kailash Mansarovar by talking to China and reimbursing the fee charged by the Chinese government to these pilgrims.
In the next demand, it was said that the agreement between the then Government of India and the Communist Government of China in the years 1993 and 1996 should be cancelled because in both the agreements, the Indian Army was obliged to remain unarmed in front of the Chinese soldiers on the Tibet border. To be done is indeed a betrayal of the Indian Army.
Regarding Tibetan medicine in the memorandum, it was said that India should also give shelter to the effective Tibetan medicine system recognising the health benefits to the people in the country and the generation of income to the government from Tibetan families by including it in AYUSH.
In another demand, it was said that in order to keep the recognition and identity of the Tibet border intact, only the Indo-Tibet border should be written and spoken, and not the India-China border. Because China was never our neighbour country in history and we did not have any border with it.
In addition, there were also demands for Bharat Ratna to be given to the organization’s protégée Rajju Bhaiya and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and Indian citizenship to Tibetans.
On behalf of Bharat Tibbat Samanvay Sangh, His Excellency was presented with a memento, BTSS’s magazine SHIVBODHI, a book written on Defence Minister Raj Nath Singh, a book engraving the contemporary importance of Tibet; and Khatak, Shiva’s body cloth, flowers and Rudraksh garlands were also offered to him.
BTSS Central Convener Shri Hemendra Tomar, National General Secretary Shri Arvind Kesari and Shri Vijay Mann, National Treasurer Shri Ajit Agarwal, National President Youth Shri Neeraj Singh and National Secretary Shri Narendra Singh Chouhan were part of this special delegation.
