Dharamshala: The Public Service Commission (PSC) on Saturday organized a
talk on imparting ethics to the officials of the Central Tibetan
Administration and their responsibilities. The talk was held at Gangkyi
staff cafeteria.

In his opening remarks, PSC Chairman Mr Tashi Phuntsok expressed his
hope that such talks by resource persons to the staff members on a
regular basis would be helpful in improving the efficiency of CTA. The
officials should also be aware of the present political situation inside
Tibet, he added.

Resource person, Education Secretary Ven Karma Gelek Yuthok, spoke on
the code of conduct and responsibilities of CTA officials.

Underlining the importance of improving quality and proficiency of staff
members, he said, His Holiness the Dalai Lama has laid focus on
improving the image of CTA officials to win the respect of Tibetan masses.

He added: "Under a democratic set up and rule of law, winning the
respect of our people is the most important thing."

He further said: "While doing their duties, the officials should have a
positive motivation of taking a big responsibility in carrying forward
the Tibetan struggle under the leadership of His Holiness the Dalai Lama."

"We should put our best effort in fulfilling our duties, while
considering the overwhelming gratitude of His Holiness - to keep the
bond between us and His Holiness as envisioned by him," he added.

Relating it with spiritual implications, he said, the positive fruits of
your work would be so enormous - while one also has to bear results of
dereliction and negligence in one's service.

Mr Lhakpa from the Department of Security briefed the staff members on
the political situation inside Tibet. He highlighted issues ranging from
lack of political freedom including freedom of religion, poor human
right situation, smear campaign targeted at His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

He said: "Effort should be made to keep alive the spirit of our people
living in Tibet by making our selves aware of their patriotism and
