Karnataka CM swearing in Live Updates: Dalai Lama congratulates Siddaramaiah
Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Saturday congratulated Siddaramaiah on becoming Karnataka’s chief minister again.
“Last April marked the 64th anniversary of our life in exile,” he wrote. “In order to find a suitable place for the resettlement of the many Tibetans fleeing to India at the time, Prime Minister Pandit Nehru appealed to the chief ministers of the various states to provide land. The most generous response came from the Chief Minister of your State, S. Nijalingappa I had actually met him earlier in 1956 during my visit to India and I have a very clear recollection of that meeting.
“Subsequently, as you know, more than 30,000 Tibetans settled in Karnataka in the 1960s, the largest group of Tibetans in exile. I remain grateful to the State of Karnataka and in August 2018, I participated in a special function in Bangalore to thank the State and its people for their friendship and generous support.
