Army Chief Rawat in a press conference had said that JK teacher were teaching two maps to the students.
“In the schools in Jammu & Kashmir, what teachers are teaching should not be taught. In schools in J&K, there can be seen 2 maps, one of India another of J&K. Why do we need a separate map for J&K? What does it teach the children?” he asked.
