Center Considers Partial Withdrawal Of AFSPA In Assam And Arunachal Pradesh

Published on 5 July, 2017 at 5:15 pm By

As per a recent report, the home ministry has asked the governments of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh for a partial withdrawal of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA). The ministry has asked the governments of the two states to consider the “disturbed” tag for districts showing increasing signs of normalcy.

It has come to light that organizations including ULFA and National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) have remained less active for some time, in-turn creating a possibility for removal of AFSPA. Due to this reason, the government had earlier cleared only a three-month extension of AFSPA in May throughout Assam and other 3 districts. This also included the 16 police station areas of Arunachal. Previously, a six-month extension was given.



According to the report, the governments have been asked to re-evaluate the need for Army deployment particularly in those parts of the state where the insurgency is less extensive and security challenges can be managed by the police.

As published in the report, an officer stated,

Wherever Army is no longer required to aid the civil authorities, the rollback of AFSPA may be considered. The central forces can step in to take over the Army’s role and duties.

If AFSPA is removed even partially, this would be a welcome change for the people of the two states. It will bring a positive change in their lives.
