Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday hit out at the presidents of the BJP and PDP, saying they were lying about the repealing of Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA).
“Why are @AmitShah & the PDP lying to people about AFSPA? PDP has no intention of doing anything with AFSPA & BJP didn’t break the coalition because of AFSPA. This is from Ms Mufti’s Assembly speech as CM in Feb 2018,” said Omar on Twitter while posting a story carried by Economic Times.
The PDP president Mehbooba Mufti had in her speech ruled out revoking the controversial act “due to the prevailing situation” and asserted that the Indian Army is the “most disciplined” force in the world.
