In 1952, serious conflict was experienced on two fronts: with Tibetans in Lhasa and within the Communist Party in Tibet. But significant progress was also made in beginning to create new, modern institutions in Tibet. The sudden presence of thousands of troops and officials in Lhasa had indeed led to serious inflation, and shortages of foodstuffs and fuel. Soon after the inauguration of the Tibet Area Military Headquarters, the Tibetan People's Party conflict came to a head. By the end of 1952, the extremist views on both sides were blocked; Lukangwa and the anti-Chinese People's Association had been disbanded and Fan Ming's attempt had been denied. Relations with the Tibetan government had improved tremendously, and a number of important initiatives had been started, such as the primary school and the youth group.
