Commonwealth Games map shows J&K, Gujarat in Pak

New Delhi, Jan 26: The London-based Commonwealth Games Federation was embroiled in a controversy Tuesday because of a contentious India map put on its website. The map of India on http://www.thecgf.com/ shows some areas of Jammu and Kashmir and Gujarat as parts of Pakistan and organisers of the 2010 Commonwealth Games today said they have raised the issue with CGF officials. “We have noticed it and told CGF officials about it. They have promised to revert back to us on the issue,” Organising Committee secretary Lalit Bhanot said. “They would definitely correct it. We were told that they would talk to the people who maintain the site and get back to us,” added Bhanot. The CGF Chief executive Officer Mike Hooper, who is based in New Delhi to oversee the preparations of the Commonwealth Games, could not be immediately reached for his comments.
