New Delhi: The Congress on Monday lashed out at the Gujarat government for projecting Arunachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir as disputed regions in a map circulated during the signing of memoranda with China on September 17.

Addressing the media, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi said the map showed Aksai Chin as part of China while Arunachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir were shown in dotted lines, implying disputed regions.

"This is a very serious matter because the goof-up took place in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi," he said.

Demanding an explanation from the government, Singhvi also attacked Modi.

"Before the elections, he (Modi) talked about not letting the country down. I would now ask him to walk the talk," he said. "Don't humiliate the country," he added.

Three agreements were signed in the presence of Modi and visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping in Ahmedabad on September 17. One was for an industrial park in Gujarat and another for a sister city. The third was between the governments of Gujarat and a Chinese province.
