The regions of Gujarat which are included in the map by Pakistan are- Junagadh and Manavadar. The map approved by the Pakistan cabinet also includes Sir Creek. Pakistan has also claimed sovereignty over Siachen by extending the Line of Control (LoC) to the Karakoram Pass.

Reacting to the development, India on Tuesday, India called it an exercise in political absurdity. "We've seen a so-called 'political map' of Pakistan that has been released by PM Imran Khan.
