While India is busy discriminating people from the North East, China has claimed Arunachal as part of China.
The Chinese government, in a new vertical map of the country, has shown Arunachal Pradesh.
The new map of China, unveiled some days back, shows the Northeastern state as part of Tibet.
The controversy comes as India’s Vice-President Hamid Ansari is on a trip to China. He was in Beijing on Saturday and called for India and China to narrow down differences and build on convergences by exploiting the potential of Panchsheel, the five principles of peaceful coexistence propounded by the two countries along with Myanmar in 1954.
The news of China showing Arunachal Pradesh as part of its territory was first reported in The Washington Post. The report said new map showed “China’s claim over the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh”. China, it said, claimed most of the state was part of southern Tibet. The new map has been made by Hunan Map Press and Hubei Bureau of Surveying, Mapping and Geo-Information, said a Wall Street Journal report citing Chinese media.
