Beijing: China has accused the "Tibetan government-in-exile" of fanning extremism in Tibet by using self-immolators as tools to split the country.

"The `Tibetan government-in-exile` in Dharamsala, India, is two-faced because it claims to discourage self-immolation but actually fans extremism in China," said Padma Choling, Chairman of the standing committee of the Tibet autonomous regional people`s congress.

"What is the use of them calling on Tibetans to stop self-immolations but instigating people to do so at the same time?" he told state-run China Daily.

"The `government-in-exile` is not doing what it said, but is using self-immolators as tools to split China. I learned that it is mobilising and orchestrating mass group self-immolations. What does that mean?" he said.

About 106 incident of self-immolations of Tibetan were reported so far in the in the last two years.
