Here is spine chilling news, though a delayed one, for China and its local followers.
Latest media report claims that Free Tibetan activists are vigorously campaigning against China in a broad day light from Solukhumbu district of Nepal which adjoins the border with China’s Tibetan Autonomous region.
The report published in Sourya vernacular daily, April 8, 2012, claims that the supporters of The Dalai Lama roam around the Lukla-Namche region of Solukhumbu wearing 'Free Tibet' imprinted T-shirts.
Two weeks ago, cadres of Unified Maoist associated with the Young Communist League (YCL) had detained five Free Tibetan activists and had forwarded them to the local police, it has been learnt.
"The Police at first refused to arrest Free Tibetan activists saying that they enjoy support of local people. But we insisted and police later reluctantly put them in custody", says Rajendra Basnet, a former in charge of Unified Maoist of Solukhumbu district.
After two days, the police released those Free Tibetan activists, reveals the report.
According to the local source, those released activists are now energetically campaigning against China from Lukla-Namche region of Solukhumbu district.
Senior leader of Unified Maoist party Mr. Gopal Kirati, who is now serving as a Minister of Culture in the incumbent Bhattarai led government is openly supporting those Free Tibetan activists, confirm the report as published by the Sourya daily.
It is widely talked that Gopal Kirati, who frequently appears in the programs organized by the local Christian missionaries, is excessively close to the Western countries.
Who is not close to the West?
Mr. Kirati represents the establishment faction inside Unified Maoist party led by Chairman Prachanda. This must have some meaning underneath.
Prachanda is the best friend of China though.
"Maoist lawmaker Aangdawa Sherpa, Maoist leader Ngimatendup Sherpa, district in charge of Unified Maoist Karyang Sherpa, District chief of CPN-UML Aangngima Lama were among those who are backstopping Free Tibetan activists from the Nepali soil of Solu district", claims the report as published by the Sourya daily.
To recall, Mrs. Aangdawa Sherpa was elevated to the rank of a lawmaker due to the excessive pressure from Gopal Kirati of the Unified Maoists party. After the elevation of Mrs. Aangdawa to the rank of lawmaker, the local cadres and leaders of Maoists who had fought a decade long civil war were mercilessly sidelined inside the party, it is learnt.
After the formation of the government under the premiership of Pushpa Kamal Dahal alias Prachanda', Mrs. Aangdawa Sherpa had published an article supporting Free Tibetan movement in the Sherpa language in the government owned daily Gorkhapatra.
"Our party is playing double. Party headquarter says that the party will not tolerate any anti-Chinese activities inside the Nepali soil. But its own leaders are boosting the morale of Free Tibetan activists by supporting them in an open manner ", opine local Maoists leaders.
So this is China’s “matured diplomacy” in Nepal.
Sourya Daily thanks.
