Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today reiterated his demand for revocation of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), and said he would take up the issue again with the Centre later this year. "Talks (for revocation of AFSPA) are on and I am of the opinion that because of the improved situation, there are areas in the state from where the AFSPA should go," Omar told reporters on the sidelines of a function here, 60 kms from Srinagar.
He said a start had to be made for the revocation of the AFSPA and he would take up the issue with the Centre. "Some people expressed apprehensions about 2014. That is why I have said let the first half of the year pass, then I will surely take up the issue with the Centre," Omar said.
