I can't understand why you use the wrong map of India repeatedly. India is the only nation, whose people use their distorted map unhesitantly. The POK and Aksai Chin part can still be considered because it is not our part practically but highlighting that Arunachal part is utter disgraceful and irritating. Have you ever gone to Arunachal or just spent your life sitting in AC glasshouses? Each and every part of Arunachal is controlled by Army and ITBP. Just Shame.
