“controversial” Tibet railway?

No there is no controversy, except some noises made by some “rights groups”. All these rights groups want is preventing the Tibetans from any modernization. You know who they serve.

“controversial”? there is no controversy at all. Tibet autonomous region of china is an internal and inseparable part of china, so china can and will do whatever china wants to do in the country. how about the west just stop interfering in other countries internal affairs!

What controversy. Tibetean folk singers sing ‘Heaven Road’ which is a tribute to the railway. Kudos to the Chinese engineers in opening up this vital transportation link and service.
