Words of support from Tibetans around the world
I support Kasur Ngodup Donchung la as the candidate for Sikyong 2021.
Like many of us, I sincerely request Kasur Ngodup Dongchung la to rise to the occasion, announce his candidacy and give meaning and strength to our collective hopes and aspirations. We assure him of our strongest support.
Highly self-disciplined, taciturn and diligent, ability to care for all issues, skillful in maintaining public relations, as well as an untainted and impeccable record of integrity are few of the hallmarks of Kasur Ngodup Dongchung, which has earned him trust and respect of Tibetan people from both within and outside of Tibet.
With 40 years of unblemished transparent service record, Kasur Dongchung Ngodup can provide a stable harmonious leadership, free from internal discord. He has the confidence to build a bridge between Tibetans in Tibet, necessary for resolution.
I support Kasur Dongchung Ngodup for 2021 Sikyong because I believe he will bring unity and brotherhood among the people of three Cholkas, which is the bedrock of our struggle. We succeed through unity not by division.
Mr. Ngodup Dongchung is the one who has personally visited Tibet and has a very good grasp of the situation inside Tibet and the thoughts of the Tibetans inside Tibet. Many people recognize him as one who has the capability to bring all Tibetans inclusively together and lead them effectively. Since I also see such quality in him, I support him for the 2021 Sikyong.
Kasur Ngodup Dongchung’s educational qualification, experience, competency, sincerity, understanding of the need for a unified Tibet, and the genuine trust placed in him by both Tibetans in exile and Tibet makes him the most eligible and suitable to be the Sikyong of 2021.
Because of Kasur Dongchung Ngodup’s consistent interaction with Tibetans inside Tibet, he knows the true aspirations of Tibetans inside Tibet. The fact that most of the former political prisoners are supporting him tells us something about him.
I have known Kasur Ngodup Dongchung since 1964 from our school days and then in CTA, where he rose to the post of Kalon. I have personally experienced his outstanding leadership quality and gentle nature throughout this period. As such, I am supporting him for 2021 Sikyong with the aim of electing someone who can provide us strong and stable leadership by uniting the people of Utsang, Kham and Amdo together.
Even the Chinese government has recognized him(Kasur Ngodup Dongchung) as a vital person and someone who is genuinely and thoroughly informed about situations inside Tibet and in exile.
When I was imprisoned, the Chinese authorities interrogated me many times asking questions about two prominent Tibetans in the exile community, one being Kasur Ngodup Dongchung. After observing how the Chinese authorities took special notice of Kasur Ngodup Dongchung, my respect for him grew immeasurably.
My experience of working closely with Ku-Ngo Ngodup Dongchung la for the more than 30 years convinced me that he is one who always keeps the interest of the community first, without bothering to place importance on his personal image and name. His clandestine visit to Tibet in the past facilitated a strong bridge between Tibetan people inside and outside in exile. Considering the call of the time, he is a leader who can be trusted and relied upon and who is currently needed in the community.
I support Kasur Ngodup Dongchung for the 2021 Sikyong for his honesty, sincerity, rich experience and particularly for his ability to inclusively lead all Tibetans irrespective of the province they belong to, and also being a staunch supporter of Middle Way Approach Policy as a way forward.
Kasur Ngodup Dongchung has consistently shown impeccable integrity throughout his 44 years of remarkable service to the Tibetan cause.
Kasur Ngodup Dongchung la is the epitome of sheer simplicity. He is a man with in-depth knowledge on all issues pertaining to Tibet and the diaspora community, especially with regard to the situation inside Tibet. His decisiveness and inclusive approach to dealing with important matters are a few of the many reasons why I am supporting him as our next Sikyong in 2021.
I first came in contact with Kungo Ngodup Dongchung la while I was working in the Vice-Chancellor office, CUTS. During the period, I observed that he is honest, humble, impartial and down to earth with excellent administration skills. In addition to the above, he is highly respected within as well as outside of our society. Therefore, it is an honor to support Kungo Ngodup la for the 2021 Sikyong Candidate.
It was only during my six years as Secretary in the Department of Security, CTA that I came to know about, and was awestruck by the intense relationships and contacts that Kasur Ngodup Dongchung had within Tibet and the cordial, long-lasting and smooth relations he had established with the high-level Indian Govt. officials.
To someone like me who had just come out of an abusive, torturous and a harsh oppressive system; the first time we met, you interacted with me with a composure of a leader, and your words of compassion filled me with warmth and fearlessness.
In order to revive the virtuous character of the CTA Leadership, I am supporting Kasur Ngodup Dongchung, a person with the highest moral character and with most profound experience to be the Sikyong 2021.
Kasur Ngodup Dongchung has been steadfastly working for the future cause of Tibet with firm determination, dedication, and sincerity. His personal quality to treat everyone equally and his ability to maintain the unity of Tibet. On top of that his unwavering and steadfast in fulfilling the instructions and visions of His Holiness the Dalai Lama without any hesitation are the reasons that he is one of the most qualified to be the Sikyong.
