New Delhi: On Tuesday, tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama underwent a check-up at a hospital in Delhi after some health complications, hospital sources said.

However it is worth mention that to a question on China's stand on the next Dalai Lama, the Tibetan spiritual leader had said, "If I live for another 10-15 years, political situation in China will change. But if I die in the next few years, the Chinese government will show the reincarnation must happen in China." To be noted that China has said the successor to the Dalai Lama must be chosen according to the religious rituals and historical conventions as well as the backing from the ruling Communist Party. The Dalai Lama has been keeping China on tenterhooks about his successor.
