`Laws like AFSPA in place not for fun’
Onus on states to create situation for revocation: Madhav
JAMMU, Mar 18: BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav Saturday sought to put onus on the state(s) to create situation for revocation of Armed Forces Special Power Act (AFSPA) stating that it was not out of fun but for necessity such laws were in place in some states.

He was reacting to a query about the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s renewed pitch in a seminar in the union capital earlier this week for AFSPA revocation from some areas of J&K to see the impact.

“It is not out of fun that such laws are in place in some states. They are there, because there is some necessity for such laws there. AFSPA and laws like it have not been imposed for out of any fun. When the necessity for these laws will be brought to end by those state governments, wherever they are, whether in J&K or North East and situation gets changed, such laws get automatically scrapped,” he said. He asked state governments to ensure better security, law and order to ensure AFSPA like laws were not needed. “State governments should contribute in creating conducive situation where there is no need of imposing such laws,” he said.

On the issue of disappearance of Indian clerics in Pakistan, Madhav said that the government was making maximum efforts and using all channels including diplomatic ones to ensure that they were brought back safely. “Government of India is doing everything possible to bring them back,” he said. Asked whether it was a provocation by ISI and Pakistan, he said, “This will come out once these two people are located and brought back safely. The whole episode as to who is behind their disappearance will come out.”
