New Delhi, Mar 23 (ANI): Tibetan religious leader the Dalai Lama on Sunday said that he does not have any intention to oppose the Beijing Olympics and that it should be held on the scheduled time.

According to Chinese Government, the Dalai Lama has caused the trouble to ruin Beijing’s Olympic Games in August.
