Sept. 28, 2015 -- Move indicates futureless end of the Dalai Lama group: expert

A former senior member of the Dalai Lama clique who formerly exiled in India, has returned, which experts think indicates the declining influence of the group.

Achok Rinpoche, a living Buddha, returned to China in May and has settled down in the Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture in Southwest China's Sichuan Province after being gained approval from Sichuan in April, State-owned news site tibet.cn reported Saturday.

"It's a brave and praiseworthy move," Xiong Kunxin, an ethnic studies professor at the Minzu University of China, told the Global Times.

"Now I am a 'real' Chinese citizen," said Achok when he was visited by Cui Baohua, a member of the Standing Committee of the Sichuan provincial committee of the Communist Party of China, "And all I want to do is to fulfill my duty as a Chinese citizen."
