The communist party chief of the Tibet autonomous region Zhang Qingli, had this to say

” … in contrast with their meager living under the savage, dark and cruel serfdom that prevailed before liberation, all ethnic groups in Tibet were now leading a happy life and would enjoy an even brighter future.”

On the issue of the Dalai Lama, the party chief said the “14th Dalai Lama had been engaged in separatist activities without doing a single good deed for the Tibetan people since he betrayed his motherland and fled abroad more than 50 years ago….. The Dalai Lama was not purely religious but a political exile, who had long been attempting to split China, he said.”
