London, Nov, 9 - Peiping Radio, in a broadcast in Tibetan last night, said that the "People's Army" had entered the Tibetan Capital of Lhasa.


In Lhasa itself an interim regime led by a senior monk Minister. Sawong Lama has replaced the Cabinet of the former Regent Takta Rimpoche.


Partial to the Communists, the new regime is considering Peiping proposals regarding Tibet according to reports.


The proposal provide that : -



  • China would not interfere in the internal administration of Tibet but would be responsible for its defense, external affairs, and communications.

  • China would station a token force in Lhasa and appoint military advisers to reorganise the Tibetan forces;

  • China would not interfere with the Dalai Lama and the Patchen Lama.


The interim regime has ordered the Tibetan troops to offer no resistance to the invading forces.


Meanwhile, in Kashmir and Uttar Pradesh-formerly the United Provinces-security measures have been taken along the two State's borders with Tibet.


NON-RECOGNITION


The Indian Deputy Prime Minister Mr. Sardar Patel, said in New Delhi to-day that India could not recognise the new three year-old King of Nepal.


The boy was proclaimed King on Tuesday after his grandfather, the King of Nepal, took refuge in the Indian Embassy in Katmandu capital of Nepal.


Addressing a public meeting Mr. Patel called on the Indian people to unite and strengthen themselves in the face of "new dangers or fear of dangers" arising from the trouble in Tibet and Nepal.


He said that the internal feud in Nepal had laid wide open India's frontiers in the north to outside danger.
