The Dalai Lama left by helicopter for Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Guwahati, Assam, on Tuesday morning, from Tawang helipad. Thousands of people lined up along the road to see him off.

Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu and other dignitaries also saw him off at the helipad. “The chief minister thanked the Dalai Lama for his visit and requested him to visit Arunachal Pradesh again in the near future,” an official of the Arunachal Pradesh told media persons.

On Monday, the Nobel Peace laureate, who Beijing has called an “anti-China separatist”, described his visit to Arunachal Pradesh as a “memorable one” that he would cherish forever.

The spiritual guru also thanked the people, particularly from far off villages, who gathered in large numbers to welcome and listen to him at all the places that he visited.

The Dalai Lama was to start his week-long religious visit to Arunachal Pradesh from Tawang on April 4. But bad weather forced him to travel by road as his helicopter couldn’t take off.
