After Meghalaya, Assam In Line To Be Free Of Afspa


The government is considering Assam as the next state from where it may remove the controversial Armed Forces Special Powers Act (Afspa) after Meghalaya, as high-level consultations are going on between the Centre and state for the possible road ahead.

Sources told ET that the Centre is examining the issue and will reassess the security situation in the state after a Supreme Court-ordered count for the national register of citizens is completed by May-end.

The Centre and the state are in broad agreement that the Act needs to be removed as the situation gradually becomes normal in the state and a window for broader consultations opens up before the end of August this year, when the current extension of Afspa comes to an end.  Read More…
