Panel To Decide On Withdrawing Controversial Law AFSPA From Nagaland

Kohima:

A committee might be shaped to look into the withdrawal of the controversial Armed Forces (Particular Powers) Act in Nagaland, Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio tweeted after a gathering with Union Residence Minister Amit Shah this afternoon. The demand for the withdrawal of the controversial legislation had spiked within the state after 14 civilians died earlier this month within the botched operation by the military and the retaliatory violence that adopted in Mon district.

“Briefed the media with regard to the assembly chaired by Hon’ble @HMOIndia Shri @AmitShah on Dec’ 23, 2021 in New Delhi. Grateful to Amit Shah ji for taking on the matter with utmost seriousness. The State Govt. appeals to all sections to proceed to keep up a peaceable environment,” learn the tweet by Mr Rio.

Final week, the Nagaland meeting unanimously resolved to demand a repeal of AFSPA from the northeast, particularly the state.

Mr Rio led the Meeting in passing the decision at a particular session. 

“Nagaland and the Naga individuals have at all times opposed AFSPA. It must be repealed,” the Chief Minister had mentioned days after the violence earlier in a searing assault on what he referred to as the “draconian legislation”.
