Chinese check on Internet, mobile phones in Tibet

China has stepped up controls on mobile phones and Internet in Tibet in midst of recurring suicides by Buddhist monks.



Beijing: China has stepped up controls on
mobile phones and Internet in Tibet in the midst of recurring
suicides by Buddhist monks, even as top Chinese Communist
Party leaders have called for all out efforts to protect the
stability of the sensitive Himalayan region.

"Mobile phones, Internet and other measures for the
management of new media need to be fully implemented," a
report in the Tibet Daily quoted Chen Quanguo, Communist Party
head of Tibet as saying.

He also asked officials to spread a message that
stability meant everything for Tibet and "unstable elements
should be nipped in the bud".

Meanwhile, one of China`s top leaders, Jia Qinglin,
stressed efforts to maintain steady and relatively fast
economic growth and safeguard social harmony and stability in
Tibet and Tibetan-inhabited areas in Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu
and Qinghai provinces.

Jia, a member of the Standing Committee of the
Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of
China (CPC) said stability concerning Tibet was important as
the CPC is due to hold its 18th Party Congress this year to
elect new leadership for the country.

Jia urged authorities to do a good job in work
concerning Tibet and Tibetan-inhabited areas in the four
provinces, which he said carries overall significance for the
Party and the country.

"We should consider both internal and external
situations and firmly follow the gist of `making progress
while maintaining stability,` striving for a steady economic
growth in Tibet and the Tibetan-inhabited areas in four
provinces," Jia was quoted as saying by state-run Xinhua news
agency.

His comments came as China stepped up security all over
Tibet and its surrounding prefectures in the face of recurring
suicides by Buddhist Monks demanding the return of the Dalai
Lama, who is on exile in India.

So far, 22 monks and nuns attempted self-immolations
ramping up pressure on the government.
