Jammu: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday
said his government would immediately act on recommendations
of the committees on withdrawal of AFSPA from some parts of
Jammu and Kashmir as soon as these were submitted to it.

His government was committed to gradual withdrawal of
the Armed Forces Special Powers Act from the state, he told
the state assembly.

"The recommendations (on withdrawal of AFSPA) of the
committees will be acted upon as soon as these are submitted
to the government," Omar said in a written reply.

His government had constituted two committees, one each
for Jammu and Kashmir, to look into the areas from where the
Act could be withdrawn, he said.
