Dear Editors,

Tashi Delek!

This will be my last response to Tenzin Phentok regarding Lobsang Sangay's UNITY "An apparent contradiction"

Let me see if I understand myself clear about the phrase "Phung Dig Yak". For me Phung Dik Yak means taking sides or form a group (shoulder to shoulder).

A region of Tibet like LITHANG offering tenshuk to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Parliament are two different situations. Let me see if I can make myself clear again, here is an example: Lets say in Dharamsala, Tibetans are gathered representing Byalakuppee and Kollegal to offer Tenshuk to His Holiness. As my shichak used to be Kollegal, I would be proud to take side or be a part of that Kollegal group to offer The Tenshuk to His Holiness.

Tibetan Parliament represents Tibet (the whole of Tibet). The MPs have to make decisions on behalf of Tibet.

Ok, now to your  questions :  

   (1) Yes, I am ashamed on the actions of the Chitues in the 8th session.
   (2). No, I am not aware.      
   (3). If I am not wrong, the problem in the 8th session was due to the signing by the 14 Chitues on the bill before even addressing that bill in the parliament. The problem was not due to "Phung Dik Yak"  PHRASE.
   (4). It is wrong to falsely condemn or accuse people before even understanding the truth. 

So, understand the situation, the time and the talks. Cross examine those and then it is good to tell your views.

Thank you and best wishes for a smooth and successful Kalon Tripa and Chitue Elections!
