Committed to revoke the Law: Sagar
Srinagar, Apr 6: Terming PDP non co-operative over revocation of Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), senior National Conference (NC) leader and Rural Development Minister Ali Muhammad Sagar Friday said Omar Abdullah led coalition government is committed to revoke AFSPA.
Addressing party workers at NC headquarters here, Sagar said the more security bunkers would be removed from Srinagar city for easy movement of common people. He said the NC led coalition government will take all the stake-holders including security agencies into confidence over revocation of AFSPA.
“Chief Minister is personally keen to revoke AFSPA as early as possible, as the security situation has drastically improved. We are in touch will the Central government and we are hopeful that a final call over revocation of AFSPA would be taken soon,” he said.
Sagar said opposition PDP is playing a negative role over revocation of AFSPA. “In Delhi, they oppose the sincere move of Omar Abdullah to revoke AFSPA. In Kashmir they are giving an impression to people that they are advocating revocation of AFSPA,” he said.
He said Omar Abdullah government is committed to keep all those promises fulfilled which he has made with the people.
“More bunkers would be removed from the Srinagar as the security situation has drastically changed,” he said and added that Omar Abdullah has favoured that all the traditional routes should be reopened with Pakistan so that easy access would be available to the traders and common people of both the sides.
The Rural Development Minister also said that Omar Abdullah has also directed the security agencies that passport should be given to all those who have no link with the militancy.
He said the government is committed for the safe return of the youth who had crossed to Pakistan. He said that process is going on and state government is intending for their return so that they can live normal life with their families.
