NSF condemns extension of disturbed area tag on Nagaland
Kohima: The Naga Students Federation (NSF) on Thursday opposed the extension of Armed Forces Special Power Act in Nagaland by the Centre when cease-fire was on and talks with Naga political groups were continuing.
The apex students body in a statement condemned the October report of the Union Home Ministry recently presented by Home Minister P Chidambaram where the `draconian` act was extended from October 20 to June 30, 2011 in Nagaland.
The NSF said it had been demanding for a decade for the withdrawal of the AFSPA from Nagaland along with other northeastern states, adding the organisation would continue to fight against violation of human rights in the state.
