SNN India: ''The Silön of Theocratic Republic of Tibet, alongside with the Lama council, are ready to decide, if to let Dalai Lama return in Lhasa. Debates about the decision are reported to be intense, and each side is not afraid to call for public support. Context - after RNGOC's collapse, Lama council, and monasteries retook control in Tibetan Plateau, using the power vacuum there. For a while, they managed to secure their independence, but during the Scramble for the World, SC's Indian divisions marched into Lhasa, and ended its independence. It got restored as a SC's region, but as a republic instead, with Silön (Prime Minister) in charge. Despite that, progress is still sluggish, and monasteries, along with Lama council, still have a lot of say in the regional matters.''
