In late 1980, Phüntso Wangye decided to participate actively in the major discussions that were in progress regarding revising the national constitution. He thought a great deal about the new constitution, and then decided to present his thoughts verbally at a meeting of cadres in his work unit. In Marxism, the relationship between nationalities in multiethnic states should be one of complete equality. The cadres totally rejected Phüntso's case for the sovereignty of nationalities. He criticized Li Weihan's report because it posed difficult problems for the party. Generally speaking, Phüntso had not only been rehabilitated, but now his revolutionary work since 1940 had been accepted. His life after his terrible years in prison is discussed.

Keywords:   Phüntso Wangye, national constitution, Marxism, Li Weihan, revolutionary work
