KATHMANDU, Nov 10: Even though former Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has dismissed media reports that he met Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, the Central Tibetan Administration on its website has confirmed Deuba’s presence in the 3rd India Ideas Conclave organized by India Foundation in Goa where the Dalai Lama delivered a video message.

Speaking at the event, Sangay said, “We must succeed so that His holiness can return to his homeland and the Tibetans inside Tibet, who are suffering for decades with the hope that His holiness will soon return to Tibet. When that happens, truth will prevail, justice and Ahimsa will prevail and Made-in-India will prevail.
The conclave was inaugurated with keynote speeches from the Dalai Lama, via a video message, Swami Tejomayananda, Global Head of Chinmaya Mission, Mumbai, Sher Bahadur Deuba, former Prime Minister of Nepal, among others, said the tibet.net.
