It’s better if I retire and get out of Tibet movement: Dalai

Dharamshala After months of speculation over his retirement, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama declared that the future course of the movement that he spearheaded for nearly five decades will now be decided by 'Prime Minister of government-in-exile' Samdhong Rinpoche.
"I have grown old and already taken semi-retirement. It is better if I retire completely and get out of the way of the Tibetan movement," the 73-year-old Nobel laureate, who recently underwent surgery, said after an interaction with Himachal Pradesh legislators.
"The future course of Tibetan movement will be decided by the elected government under Prime Minister Samdhong Rinpoche," the Tibetan temporal head said.
The Dalai Lama's statement came just three weeks after a key conclave of exiled Tibetans virtually put on notice the Dalai's ‘Middle Path’ approach on dialogue with China and declared that they will be forced to demand full independence if no concrete results emerged.
