Penpa Tsering should leave from the office as directed without protest. I doubt he has has any goodwill towards the kashag and even if he made no mistakes, Kashag could still toss him out of the office if he doesn’t come up to their expectations so that they can actually achieve their target for the larger cause of Tibet. I fully support the Dr. Lobsang Sangay led Kashag here.
I think it is very unlikely that Kashag would take a U-turn on Penpa Tsering’s decision. As far as rumours go, Lobsang sangyay supporters are even planning to protect against Kashag if Penpa Tsering was retained as NA representative or accorded any other other such post in the US. He has shown very arrogant attitude to CTA and refusal to make any statement to calm down the protest of 27/11, it can’t be right if such a man is allowed to enjoy the chair of a representative.
I hope that Kashag resist the pressure of the vocal minority who are creaking this unnecessary drama to undermine our democratically elected president. If Kashag does so, then it sets a precedent where president can never dismiss anyone who has served 10+years whenever necessary. Always a section of public will say , ‘it is unfair. He has served 10 years, 20 years ‘ and so on. We don’t want to see that.
So I think Penpa Tsering should call for protesters to stop the protest which he unfortunately he has not done till now. He only warned that ‘ there will be protests and chaos’ on the fateful night of his dismissal. And the cue was duly taken by raging divisive individuals like Mila Rangzen and Thinley Kelsang, and organized a campaign that eruped on 27/11. What a shame!
I would like to therefore request Penpa Tsering la to please pack up and leave the office and the people who are making all those protests to stop for the greater cause of our country.
