An exhibition titled "Democratic Reform in the Tibet Autonomous Region" opened in Beijing Tuesday.
Liu Yunshan, member of both of the Political Bureau and the Secretariat of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said at the opening that the exhibition showed Tibet is an inseparable part of China.
It also exposed the dark side of the old Tibet and told the truth of the armed rebellion of the Dalai Lama Clique, said Liu, who also heads the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee.
All those who really knew and cared about Tibet would never deny the miraculous progress of the Tibetan people over the past 50 years with the support of the central government and all the Chinese people, Liu said.
