Ample chances to allay Army concerns on AFSPA: Omar

NEW DELHI: Amid raging controversy over the issue of partial withdrawal of AFSPA, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today said there was ample opportunity to address the concerns of the armed forces and still go ahead with the proposed plan.

Omar, who met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Home Minister P Chidambaram, also made it clear that he was not in the “business of playing politics with national security”, nor would he do so ever in future.

“I believe that there is ample opportunity to address both the concerns of armed forces while still allowing us to go ahead with the position that we have taken which is keeping with what the Cabinet Committee on Security recommended almost a year ago,” he said after a meeting with Chidambaram.

Omar said as part of his efforts to evolve a consensus on the partial withdrawal of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, he has already met the Prime Minister, and other members of the CCS – Defense Minister A K Antony, the Home Minister and would meet Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee.
“Obviously the effort is to narrow the differences between what we would like to see happening and what the Army is so far as publicly stated as comfortable to let happen,” he said.

The Chief Minister dismissed the suggestion that by raking the AFSPA he was trying to deflect other issues facing his government and said he has been raising the AFSPA issue ever since be became the Chief Minister three years ago.

“Please understand. I have been talking about AFSPA and its possible partial roll back almost the day since I became the Chief Minister…I am not in the business of playing politics with national security. I never have been and I never will be,” he said. –PTI
