The BBC apologised for any offence caused and rectified what it termed as the mistaken use of an inaccurate map of India, which had the boundaries of J&K entirely missing, triggering a formal letter of complaint by Labour Party MP Virendra Sharma. In a video broadcast about President-elect Joe Biden on BBC World Service, the graphic depicting the map of India was incompletely highlighted in red with the Union Territories of J&K missing.
