GANGTOK, 19 Feb: The Joint Action Committee [for the Karmapa], a representation of 18 Buddhist organizations of Sikkim, and the Karmapa Reception Committee have jointly welcomed the “clean chit” given to the XVIIth Karmapa Ogyen Trinley by the Congress-led UPA government and have expressed their gratitude towards the Prime Minister, the UPA Chairperson, Home Minister and the Home Secretary “for laying to rest all allegations leveled against the Karmapa”. Reinvigorated by this latest development, they have also reiterated the "Karmapa to Rumtek" call.
