Phüntso Wangye's detailed history of his life was used in a formal political investigation against him. After 1949, he felt he could go into more detail. The leading party group of the State Nationalities Affairs Commission decided that Phüntso was to be isolated from the outside world. It was believed that the reason why he was isolated was because he had told Wang Feng that Fan Ming was not doing a good job in Tibet and was acting contrary to the central government's policies. It was also thought that Phüntso was guilty of counterrevolutionary acts and should be arrested immediately. Prison was hard to adjust to. It was then considered that since the Chinese as a race were very suspicious, they must be on some sort of fishing expedition to try to find out if there was something bad hidden in Phüntso's history.
