We are very grateful for all the support that you have provided us.”

“You revere His Holiness the Great 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet and have had audience with him several times. During your tenure in the office, you have also welcomed His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s visit graciously in your state. You have also been very welcoming to the Tibetans and all the pilgrims to your state during His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s teachings and Kalachakra initiations. Your help in the establishment and development of the monastic institutions in your state is truly appreciated and commendable. Your government has not only hosted His Holiness the Dalai Lama in the state during the occasions, but facilitated all the required needs fulfilling the safety and security of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Therefore, we are very thankful to your government and hope that you will continue with the same,”
