`Central Tibetan Administration illegitimate`

The Chinese official media alleged that Lobsang Sangay, the PM of the Tibetan government-in-exile, was elected with US` support.



Beijing A move to rename the US-backed Tibetan government-in-exile in Dharamsala as the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) has no legitimacy, the Chinese official media has said.

"Neither the Chinese central government, nor any other national government has recognised it, (Tibetan government-in-exile) as the legal representative of Tibet.
Calling itself the central Tibetan administration does not alter this fact," the state-run China Daily said.

Alleging that Lobsang Sangay, the Prime Minister of the Tibetan government-in-exile was elected with US` support, the paper said, "The CTA`s new leader Lobsang Sangay could not have become the chief Kalon (Prime Minister) without the support of people in the United States, who are eager to see the man they cultivated work for their interests”.

"The Dalai Lama openly doubted him at first and only started supporting him later as he cannot afford to ignore the US. Sangay, a Harvard graduate and former activist of the radical separatist organisation Tibetan Youth Congress, lacks any understanding of the real national conditions of China and its Tibetan region," it said.

The article`s criticism of the Tibetan Youth Congress followed a barrage of accusations by officials charging it of orchestrating the recurring self-immolation attempts Tibetan youth both home and abroad.

The article written by Hua Zi, a scholar from state-run China Tibetology Research Centre also questioned the move to rename the exile government as CTA.

"Sangay has had a hard time since he became the leader in April 2011 of the CTA, the new name adopted by the so-called government in exile, so he probably thought that the ridiculous speech he gave on March 10 would improve his image with his US backers".

The CTA has "no legitimacy at all", it said, adding that the Tibetans and Hans, the majority community of China have "political and kinship ties" since the days of Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907).
