No such attempt to insult the integrity and sovereignty of India will be tolerated.

Subsequently, a letter from the Indian government to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey stated that Leh is the headquarters of the Ladakh region. According to the Indian Constitution, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh are integral parts of the country. The letter also raised questions about the fairness of Twitter and staying true to the facts.
