The Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD)-only rights monitoring organisation in exile-in its fresh report has accused China of human rights violation through the 'mass line' political campaign it is implementing in Tibet.

The mass line political campaign under the Xi Jinping regime, the report titled lam chok mar po (the red path) said, was reminiscent of Mao Zedong's reticification campaign, and aimed at eliminating any kind opposition, real or perceived.

"Under the guise of combating corruption, the China's communist rule has begun striking hard upon both the "tigers and flies," said Tsomo, adding that over the past three years the mass line campaign had led to severe repression and worsening of human rights violations of the Tibetan people in Tibet.

The Chinese communist rule in further attempts by increasing the number of party members in Tibet is trying to get control on grass-root level, the report says.

Meanwhile, the TCHRD president, Tsering Tsomo, said the fresh report was an in-depth study of the mass line campaign being implemented all over China and Tibet.

It focuses specially on the Tibetan countryside, in Tibetan villages, where the campaign has managed to increase the repressive control of the party by expanding its membership, building a network of internet surveillance, and providing economic allurements known as "mass welfare and mass stability" to buy Tibetan loyalty.

"The report documents that the repressive campaigns have helped create a 'red slavish society', turning the Tibetan countryside into an invisible prison," she added.
