The spiritual leader Dalai Lama's office here refused to comment on a chinese Communist party secretary  for Tibet region Chen Quanguo assertions to silence Dalai Lama voice at his homeland Tibet.

“Right now we will not comment anything  on the statement coming from China “ said Tenzing Taklha joint secretary at Dalai Lama’s private office in Dharamsala.

Chen had very sharply criticised the spirituaal leaders in a magazine.

"Strike hard against the reactionary propaganda of the splittists from entering Tibet," Chen wrote in the magazine, whose name means "seeking truth".

The government will achieve this by confiscating illegal satellite dishes, increasing monitoring of online content and making sure all telephone and internet users are registered using their real names, he added.

"Work hard to ensure that the voice and image of the party is heard and seen over the vast expanses (of Tibet) ... and that the voice and image of the enemy forces and the Dalai clique are neither seen nor heard," he wrote.

China calls the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Dalai Lama a "wolf in sheep's clothing" who seeks to use violent methods to establish an independent Tibet.

The Dalai Lama, who fled to India after a failed uprising in 1959, says he simply wants genuine autonomy for Tibet, and denies espousing violence.

Chen said the party would seek to expose the Dalai Lama's "hypocrisy and deception" and his "reactionary plots".
