Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki has raised the issue of wrong depiction of his state in Google Maps with the US-based company and has sought corrective measures.
Tuki had visited the Google headquarters in California on Saturday.
"Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India and will always remain so,"Tuki said and urged Google to rectify the mistake keeping in the mind the sensitivities of the people of the state and India as a whole, an official communique said here today.
Google has assured to look into the matter and rectify it soon, the communique said.
Tuki had visited Google Headquarters, Mountain View, California, USA on an invitation by Google for the Google Global Education Symposium of Ministers. As part of the symposium, Tuki held meetings with the Google Education Team headed by Caesar Sengupta, vice-president, product management, Michael de la Cruz, global head of education, Bram Bout, worldwide director of education and Gagandeep Singh Puri, head of education in India. The one of a kind interactive session is also the first by any chief minister from the state, the statement said.
In 2012, Google Earth had displayed the whole of Arunachal Pradesh as part of Chinese territory, triggering a storm of protests in the state.
