Corruption India's biggest problem: Dalai Lama
Meerut: The Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama on Monday said that corruption is India's biggest problem and it is making the country weak.

"Leaders like Mahatma Gandhi sacrificed their lives for country's independence but today politicians are misusing their powers. Common people are facing corruption in there daily life," the Tibetan leader said.

Addressing a function at a college in Ganganagar area here, he said that Naxalism is the country's internal problem and it has stemmed out of government's indifference. "The way adopted by Naxals may be wrong but their demands can not be totally set aside," he said.

On China-Tibet, he said that it is not a question of winning or losing. Many Chinese thinkers and writers have raised voices against their government's policies, he said.

He said that India has not only given asylum to people who came from Tibet but also gave respect to Buddhism.

The spiritual leader praised India and said that it is the only country where people from various religions and sects live together.

However, he condemned social evils like caste system and dowry.
