Dharamsala, March 28 (IANS) Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit to India for the BRICS summit was greeted here with protest banners and shuttered Tibetan shops.
Most shops in the town's suburb McLeodganj -- also known as 'Little Lhasa' -- downed their shutters as the community expressed its opposition to China's rule over Tibet.
The streets have been lined with banners and posters with photographs of those who have self-immolated themselves in Tibet.
A prayer session was held close to the official palace of the Dalai Lama.
India is home to around 100,000 Tibetans.
