Withdraw Disturb Areas Act, says Tarigami

Srinagar: Lone CPI-M MLA in Jammu and Kashmir
Assembly Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Friday said the government should withdraw the Disturb Areas Act from the places where the levels of violence have come down significantly.
"The Government of India and state government should
together take an initiative to remove Disturbed Areas Act from
the areas where the government has admitted that the levels of
violence have come down," Tarigami said in the state Assembly.

He said the improvement in the situation across the state
had provided an opportunity to review the Act. "There is
an opportunity which should not be missed," he said.
Revocation of Disturbed Areas Act in Jammu and Kashmir
will make Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) inapplicable
in the state.
