Jammu: Opposing withdrawal of Armed Forces
Special Powers Act in Jammu and Kashmir, VHP on Tuesday said though
militancy in the state has reduced, it is not completely wiped
out.
"We oppose withdrawal of AFSPA in JK. Militancy in the
state has reduced but training centres in Pakistan are working
round-the-clock to train youths to carry out destructive
activities in JK and other parts of the country as well," VHP
state president Rama Kant Dubey told reporters here.

He alleged Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is "blackmailing"
the Union government to withdraw AFSPA clamped in the state
since last two decades.

"The Centre should go by the ground realities instead of
pleasing their coalition partner at the cost of Nation...It is
certain that if it go by the advice of the Chief Minister in
doing away with the AFSPA, the situation in the state may go
back to early 1990`s, making it impossible for security forces
to control it (militancy)," Dubey said.
He said even defence personnel are not in agreement with
the political arguments pertaining to prevailing situation in
the state.
