Chidambaram to decide on Armed Forces Special Powers Act

Leave a comment

Army chief General Vijay Kumar Singh has said that the Army has given its opinion on rollback of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in Kashmir and now it’s for the Home Ministry to decide.

“See this is within the purview of the Ministry of the Home Affairs. They are debating this. We have given our inputs. I would not like to say anything more than that,” he said when he was asked about his views on the AFSPA debate.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday reached out to the Army over the revocation of the controversial AFSPA. The Chief Minister said that the proposed withdrawal of the Armed Forces special Power Act from certain areas of the state was in no way an effort to undermine the role of the Army.

The Chief Minister had, just last week, announced at a police function that the AFSPA would be removed from some areas in Jammu and Kashmir.
