After China shows Arunachal in its map, Congress hit out PM Modi

Itanagar: The Congress party has criticized the BJP-led Modi government at the Center after China showed Arunachal Pradesh as part of its territory in its newly released “standard map”.

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge accused the Narendra Modi government of a ‘misadventure’ by China to annex Arunachal Pradesh into its territory.
“It is painful to note that China’s deception and ceasefire continue, after Galvan, after PM Modi gave them a free pass by saying ‘no one entered our territory’, our After 20 brave soldiers were martyred,” Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge
He added: “The Modi government must ensure that China’s illegal occupation of 2,000 square kilometers of Indian territory along the LAC must end.”
“Indian territories including Arunachal Pradesh and Aksai Chin are a separate and indivisible part of India,” the Congress president added.

On Monday (August 28), China published a new map, showing the northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh as part of the country.
According to the 2023 edition of its “standard map”, China has claimed not only Arunachal Pradesh but also northern India, Taiwan and the disputed Aksai Chin region in the South China Sea.
“This map is compiled based on the drawing method of national borders of China and various countries around the world,” reported China’s official English website Global Times.

It should be noted that China calls Arunachal Pradesh as South Tibet while it occupied the Aksai Chin region of India in the 1962 war.
The “standard map” also included the sovereign nation of Taiwan, which China claims as part of its territory.

China has also issued its own “standard map” claiming a large part of the disputed South China Sea.

Meanwhile, India has on several occasions rejected Chinese claims over Arunachal Pradesh, saying the border state “is and will always be an integral part of India.”
