Mr. DorjeeTseten was born in Bir Tibetan Refugee settlement, Himachal Pradesh. He obtained his BA in Economics and PGD in Human Rights Studies from MS University, Gujarat.
He is a first timer who got elected in the 16thTPiE as a Dhotoe member. As a Parliamentarian, he is one of the most vocal supporters of Rangzen as the means to settle the case of Tibet rather than Umaylam. Good.
When Dardon Sharling got nominated as a candidate for Kalon in Sangay’s Kashag, she is said to have passed on the post of the Director of the Steering Committee of International Tibet Network to him as her confidant to shoulder this post.
Since he is mostly seen either in Europe or in American, his presence in attending the meetings of Dhokham Chushi Gangdruk is rare.
However, he does flock with his Khampa tribesmen when confronted with domestic politics. He is not neutral.
