The changes and new perspectives that Deng Xiaoping was implementing in the rest of China were slow to reach Tibet. Deng sent Hu Yaobang to Tibet to end the “Two Whatevers” approach and begin a new, more culturally sensitive policy. Hu publicly announced a liberal six-point reform program for Tibet. Rumors spread in Tibet that Phüntso Wangye had sent a report to the Central Committee attacking the activities involved in putting down the rebellion and was instigating Tibetans to seek a “Greater Tibet.” Consequently, as fall 1981 arrived, notwithstanding all of Deng's and Hu's reforms, Phüntso Wangye was again in the middle of a potentially serious struggle about his views on Tibet and nationalities policy in China.
