New Delhi: Eastern Arunachal MP Tapir Gao urged the government of India to redraw its political map to include Angie Valley of Anini and Drai Valley, Kajab and Kayo valley of Chaglagam area in Anjaw district. Gao raised the political map issue during zero hour in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday.

Gao claimed that more than 120 km have been carved out by the Survey of India and British India in mentioned areas of Eastern Arunachal Pradesh boundary with China.

“More than 120 km had been carved out by Survey of India in Angie Valley-Fish Tail-1(FT-1) in Dibang Valley district. Also in Fish Tail-2(FT-2), like Drai Valley, Kajab Valley and Kayo Valley of Chaglagam areas in Anjaw district” said Tapir Gao.

“Hadigra Dakahru pass, Galai Tagaru pass and Tatu pass in Chaglagam areas. These three passes are on top of the hill, all border out posts (BoPs), exists outside the map drawn, in Indian political map. The political map should be redrawn including all these areas as per the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and Watershed Policy,” Gao claimed.

The MP called upon the government of India especially Survey of India to take note.

“In Modiji leadership, how POK is being shown under Indian Political map, Angei Valley of Dibang Valley, Kajab valley and Kayo valley of Chaglahgam areas in Anjaw district, should be shown under Indian Political Map," he added.
