Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir government will comply with the recommendations of the two committees on Armed Forces Special Powers Act, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said.

"The recommendations of the committees (set up by the
J-K Government) will be acted upon (regarding gradual
withdrawal of AFSPA) after the same are submitted by them to
the government", Omar said today.

He was replying to the cut motion by CPI(M) MLA M Y
Tarigami, during the discussion over his Home Department`s
grants in the Legislative Assembly today.

withdrawal of AFSPA from the state.

The state government has constituted two committees--one
each in Jammu and Kashmir regions respectively to look into
the areas from where the AFSPA could be withdrawn.

He further said, committees have held a number of
meetings in this regard.
