Chen Yi clearly stated that reforms would be carried out in Tibet at some point. Under the leadership of Fan Ming, plans were made to start trial reforms in Tibet later in 1956, and Fan set about creating the needed infrastructure for implementing full reforms by recruiting many thousands of Chinese cadres from inland China. After Phüntso Wangye arrived in Lhasa, it became his main responsibility to propagate the central government's instructions and views to people outside the party, particularly the Dalai Lama and the higher Tibetan officials. Even though the central government said that the reforms would be delayed in Tibet, the way they conducted the reforms and handled the situation in the eastern Tibetan areas affected the attitude of Tibetans in Tibet, who worried that the same thing would happen to them.
