BEIJING, March 6 (Xinhua) -- As the most unstable element for Tibet and representative of serf owners, the Dalai Lama is not qualified for talking about human rights, said a senior official here Friday afternoon.

"There is no historical evidence or present ground for the so called 'Greater Tibet' and 'high degree of autonomy', which are also against the will of the Tibetan people," Qiangba Puncog, chairman of the Tibet Autonomous Region, told a press conference on sideline with the annual session of the National People's Congress (NPC).

"We should judge a man not only by his words, but also by his deeds, " said the official, also a NPC deputy, stressing that what Dalai Lama said was opposite to what he did.
