No local residents, monks, nuns self-immolate in Tibet: official


13:50, March 03, 2013

BEIJING, March 3 (Xinhua) -- No local residents, monks or nuns in Tibet Autonomous Region have self-immolated so far, despite a string of similar incidents in neighboring Tibetan-inhabited regions, said a Tibetan official.

"People in Tibet including monks and nuns deserve a happy life. They cherish life and love the society and the country," said Padma Choling, deputy secretary of the regional committee of the Communist Party of China.

Developing economy, improving people's well-being, and building a sound education is key to overall development of Tibet, Padma Choling, also director of the Standing Committee of the regional people's congress, the region's legislature, said Saturday.

He said it is "immoral and inhumane" for the Dalai Lama clique to instigate self-immolation.

The Dalai clique's attempt to fool the western media and social organizations, and exert pressure on the central government through instigating self-immolation is doomed to fail, he said.

Multiple deadly self-immolation cases have happened since 2011 in regions predominantly inhabited by Tibetans in Sichuan, Qinghai and Gansu provinces.
