‘No deadline for lifting AFSPA’
Jammu, Nov 5: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Monday preferred not to fix any deadline over his proposal for partial revocation of Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) from Jammu and Kashmir.
“There is no deadline for the removal of AFSPA as of now, but it will go and the work is in progress on this count,” Abdullah told reporters here. Abdullah had injected a new urgency in the removal of AFSPA in October last year when he stated that it would be withdrawn from some parts of the State within "the next few days".
He has since faced questions on when that promise would be made good.
The Chief Minister said today: "AFSPA will go. But when, I cannot tell, for no deadline has been set at this stage."
