India rejects China’s renaming of places in Arunachal Pradesh

India firmly rejects China’s persistent attempts at renaming places in Arunachal Pradesh. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) asserts on 2nd April 2024, that the northeastern state will always be an integral and inalienable part of India. Despite China’s senseless efforts to assign invented names, the reality remains unchanged: Arunachal Pradesh is, has been, and will continue to be an integral part of our nation.

Recently, the Chinese Ministry of Civil Affairs released a fourth list of standardized geographical names in Zangnan, which is the Chinese name for Arunachal Pradesh. However, India stands firm in rejecting these attempts, emphasizing that no renaming will alter the state’s status within our borders.

This latest development comes in the wake of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh, where he inaugurated the Sela Tunnel at an altitude of 13,000 feet. Despite China’s claims, India consistently upholds its sovereignty over the region, dismissing China’s assertions as ludicrous.
