The celebrations of Dalai Lama’s 84th birthday in Nepal had to be canceled today after the government refused to allow the event, an official said.

The cancellation of the celebrations signaled the rise of China’s influence in the neighboring country.

“Permission can not be allowed in view of possible and security issues.

“Nothing will happen, but we need to be careful about the possibility of inappropriate or self-inflicted activity,”  Kathmandu district chief assistant, Krishna Bahadur Katuwal who told AFP.

It is learned that there was a security presence on Saturday in the area of ​​the Tibetan community as well as in a monastery where the 84th Dalai Lama celebration was planned.

“A lot of inventions were made but eventually we did not get the right to do the show. Nepal government regulations are getting tighter, there is nothing we can do, “said a member of the organizing committee.

Thousands of Tibetan refugees fled to the Nepalese border after a rebellion on March 10, 1959 against the Chinese government and forced the Dalai Lama to live in exile.
