LEH & TWITTER .. India objects to Twitter depicting Leh as part of China, registers protest


NEW DELHI: A twitter map showing Leh as part of China has India up in a huge eruption of protest on Thursday. Leh, the Indian government stated emphatically in a letter to Twitter CEO, is the main town of Ladakh, a Union Territory that is an integral part of India. Any attempt to project in a different way is objectionable and unacceptable, the Indian government has made it clear.

China had recently stated that it did not approve of India changing the status of Ladakh into a Union Territory on August 5 last year, till which time it was part of Jammu and Kashmir state, which too has been divided into two Union Territories the same day by a presidential decree.

Social media sites in India went berserk with the way Twitter wrongly projected Leh on its location settings. IHN-NN
