Tory candidate Marco Longhi wrote in his campaigning leaflet inviting criticism. "First of all a very happy Eid-al-Adha to you and your entire family. Recently we have seen Modi's BJP being re-elected in India. This means it will be even tougher times for the people of Kashmir in the coming months. Narendra Modi made it clear recently that he is going for a full statehood for Kashmir which would mean full removal of any sovereign rights of the Kashmiris and their special status.," the campaign leaflet read. "I was elected as your MP in 2019 and since my election I have been at the forefront of speaking against the Indian Government atrocities towards the people of Kashmir. My involvement is well publicised and I have participated in several Kashmir events...On 4th July UK General Election, you will have to make a choice. Who will speak for Kashmir in Parliament? Will it be me, or Labour Party Parliamentary candidate Sonia Kumar? I leave this decision to you. However should you vote for me, I make a pledge to you that I will raise my voice for Kashmir in Parliament even more and will be at the forefront of standing up for Kashmiris in Parliament," it added.

China on Tuesday urged US President Joe Biden not to sign the Tibet policy bill, warning of "resolute measures", as it expressed “strong concern” over the visit of a high-level US Congress delegation to Dharamshala to meet the Dalai Lama. A bipartisan US congressional delegation, led by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaulis, is visiting India to strengthen bilateral ties and to meet the 88-year-old Tibetan spiritual leader. Former US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is part of the delegation that reached Dharamsala, in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, on Tuesday. Dharamsala is the seat of power for Tibet’s government in exile since the spiritual leader stepped into India six decades ago. The US House of Representatives voted 391-26 last Wednesday to approve the Promoting and Resolution to the Tibet-China Dispute Act, which was passed by the Senate, a media report said, adding, that the bill would direct funds to counter what it calls “disinformation” from Beijing about Tibet’s history, people and institutions. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Lin Jian, while reacting to the US delegation visit, told a media briefing here: “The 14th Dalai Lama is not a pure religious figure, but a political exile engaged in anti-China separatist activities under the cloak of religion.”

Congress spokesperson Ragini Nayak filed a complaint with the Delhi Police Tuesday against INDIA TV chairman Rajat Sharma, accusing him of using “abusive language” against her during a live discussion on the channel on 4 June. In her complaint, filed in the Tughlaq Road Police Station in New Delhi, Nayak said that Sharma’s act amounted to “insulting her modesty”, which she also claimed at a press conference at the Congress headquarters. Nayak said that Sharma was under the “wrong impression” that he “can get away just because he has the blessings of the establishment and Prime Minister Narendra Modi”. “My parents, my in-laws, my children, everyone was watching that video. Lakhs and crores of Congress workers and supporters saw how you abused me on air. Just because I am working with integrity for my party. You did not just abuse me, but also started threatening me to not hold the press conference,” Nayak told reporters. According to the complaint, Sharma allegedly abused Nayak during a live show at 11 am on 4 June.

With reports suggesting that India, in response to China’s recent renaming of locations in Arunachal Pradesh, is planning to rename about 30 places within China’s Tibet Autonomous Region, let us talk about ‘consensus’ between India and China (not only about Taiwan and Xinjiang, but about Tibet), for which the posts have constantly been changed by Beijing. In October 1950, the People’s Liberation Army crossed the Upper Yangtze river and advanced into Kham Province of Eastern Tibet. A month later, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the then Deputy Prime Minister, wrote a letter to Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Patel was concerned about India’s northern borders and pointed a finger at the Indian Ambassador in Beijing: “The Chinese government has tried to delude us by professions of peaceful intention. My own feeling is that at a crucial period they manage to instil into our Ambassador a false sense of confidence in their so-called desire to settle the Tibetan problem by peaceful means. …The final action of the Chinese, in my judgement, is little short of perfidy. The tragedy of it is that the Tibetans put faith in us. …Our Ambassador has been at great pains to find an explanation or justification for Chinese policy and actions.”
