China map issue ‘very serious’, PM should speak on it: Rahul Gandhi


New Delhi, Aug 30: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday termed as “very serious” the issue of China releasing a “standard map” that laid claim over Arunachal Pradesh and Aksai Chin, saying the neighbouring country had already taken 's land in and Prime Minister Narendra Modi should speak on the issue.

On Monday, Beijing released the 2023 edition of the so-called “standard map of China” that laid claim over Arunachal Pradesh and Aksai Chin as regions within its borders.

Asked about the map issue as he was leaving for Karnataka, Gandhi told reporters, “I have just returned from Ladakh and I have been saying for years that what the PM has said, that not one inch of land has been lost in Ladakh, is an absolute lie. The whole of Ladakh knows that China has usurped our land.”

“This map issue is very serious but they have already taken away our land and the PM should say something about that too,” the former Congress president said.

The Congress on Tuesday took strong objection to the inclusion of Arunachal Pradesh and Aksai Chin in China's map and asserted that these are inalienable parts of India which no such illegal representation or arbitrarily invented map by the “habitual offender” can change.
