Dear Editors,

I am really disappointed with Phuntsok La's article on Are we electing the right man? [Original article here.]  I wanted to be calm and cool but I could not resist the temptations to reply to this article. No matter what you write, I will still vote and support LS la. Nobody is going to change me.
First of all, you mention that you do not know LS and never heard of him before.
Secondly, you seem to know a lot about LS's admission to Harvard, he got through easily just because LS is Tibetan.

My question to Phuntsok la is: How many Tibetans had been came to abroad for further education as Fulbright every year?

How come no one has graduated from Harvard as of yet? They can also claim as Tibetans as you put it, it is easier to get admitted simply being Tibetan. If that's the case, by now we should have at least 25 Harvard graduates. 
Its been at least Seven years after LS graduated, I have not heard any one who have graduated from Harvard so far, besides you have mention few of them. Why not ?  You have so many negative comments to say about LS, give me a break, Please.

My first suggestion, but It is too late this time, in future why don't you stand for Kalon Tripa candidate?  Boy, I will be the first one to criticise your candidature. You know it is easy to be a critique.

My second suggestion is that you just walk down  to Harvard and get admitted. You are Tibetan too especially from Tibet and obtain so called JD or PhD.

If you want to support any of the candidate, just  try to do healthy campaign. Just don't bark at others  without a clue, it is simply bias and jealousies.

Or you can't stand some body's success... your mind is full of bitterness and negative, I pity you. 
Thank you TPR
