See Photos: Why the Dalai Lama's visit to Assam and Arunachal Pradesh is royally pissing off China

Dalai Lama who arrived in Guwahati on Saturday is currently on a 12-day trip to Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. Here's a roundup of his trip so far

Tibetan spiritual leader and Nobel laureate the Dalai Lama who arrived in Guwahati on April 1 is currently on a 12-day visit to Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. This trip comes even as China has staged a protest against Dalai Lama’s trip to North East. Additionally, United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) has also asked the Dalai Lama to make any anti-China statements during his visit.

While Dalai Lama received a warm welcome in Guwahati, “the Chinese government is resolutely opposed to any country’s support”. China who labels Dalai Lama as an “anti- China separatist” had urged India to not invite Dalai Lama over and had also asked the spritual leader to not visit Arunachal Pradesh.

Before leaving for Arunachal Pradesh Dalai Lama will also give a lecture in the Dibrugarh University. Following which, he is expected to give teachings in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh.

Here’s a round up of his trip so far:
