“For the past 30years draconian &oppressive #AFSPA has played havoc with our lives. Time &again we have demanded its withdrawal. If GOI can remove it from its NorthEastern territories, this cruel &merciless power bestowed upon 8 lakh Indian Forces in J&K should be revoked immediately!,” tweeted Mirwaiz.
