It is worth mentioning that recently, Twitter took the ‘Geo location’ of Leh in Jammu and Kashmir, People’s Republic of China Was seen. According to sources, Ajay Sawhne, Secretary, Ministry of Information Broadcasting, took to Twitter in this regard Letter It was written that Leh is the headquarters of the Union Territory of Ladakh. Apart from this, Ladakh and Jammu Kashmir are an integral part of India and it comes under the Indian Constitution. So the kind of map that Twitter introduced is completely unacceptable and objectionable.
