An NGO The Green Arunachal Foundation (GAF) has allegedly declared that two ‘Tibetans’ are working as Arunachal Pradesh government officials. In a serious concern they have appealed to the National Security Agencies to find out the truth of the matter. They claimed that the Tibetans are employed in key administrative posts.

Takam Tatung chairman of The Green Arunachal Foundation speaking to the media claimed one Nob Tsering was actually a Tibetan national and occupying the post of Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to Chief Minister Pema Khandu.

“A Tibetan national in the CMO is a threat to the national security and national security agencies should cross-check the facts,” Tatung demanded during his interaction with the media.

He alleged that Tsering was earlier a lower division clerk in the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Tawang when former chief minister Dorjee Khandu was the state’s power minister. He further alleged that Tsering is holding the posts of relief and rehabilitation deputy director and OSD in the Chief Minister’s office.

Tatung declared that Arunachal Pradesh government and the concerned departments involved in the matter are yet to reply to the questions through the Right to Information (RTI) Act.

He alleged that the wife of the longest-serving OSD to the Chief Minister, Lham Tashi, is also a Tibetan and that he holds both Tibetan passport and an Indian passport. He made a serious allegation and suggested that Chief Minister Pema Khandu is being influenced by his OSDs to promote the Tibetan language of Bodhi and other initiatives for Tibetans residing in Arunachal Pradesh.

The Green Arunachal Foundation  also demanded that the CBI should also make enquiries into the helicopter crash which led to the demise of former Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu and also sought the intervention of the Governor into the alleged Rs 60 crore State Disaster Response Fund (SDRF) 2016-17 scam.
