Jammu: Keeping in view the "changed" security scenario in Jammu and Kashmir, the Armed Forces Special Powers Act should be revoked, CPI(M) on Sunday said and batted for maximum autonomy for the state.

"Our party is for restoration of maximum autonomy based on special status and regional autonomies to three regions of the state. Besides, security forces be made accountable and AFSPA be revoked as a result of changed security scenario in the state," CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat said at a 2-day conference of the party here, which ended this evening.

Earlier this week, Jammu and Kashmir police had said "there has been a drop of 50 per cent in terrorists violence in first three months of the year in the state."

Karat also called for mobilising various sections of society against communal forces.

"We will launch a strong campaign along with other democratic forces for peaceful resolution of Kashmir problem, and will mobilise the broader sections of the people against the divisive and communal forces trying to divide the state and spreading hatred among different communities."

CPI(M) also unanimously re-elected MLA Tarigami as State Secretary of the state.

We will also advocate protection of human rights at all levels and safeguarding of trade union rights and implementation of labour laws, Karat said.

The conference also adopted resolutions regarding containing unemployment, transfer of powers to Panchayats, protection of human rights, universalisation of PDS, curbing corruption, promoting agriculture and horticulture, protection of trade union rights, removing gender discrimination, implementation of Ranga Rajan committee report, rehabilitation of migrants, refugees and providing relief to the affected families of the recent wind storm in the state.
