Kashmiri Pandits have impressed upon the Centre that there should be no dilution of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) and nothing should be done to weaken the state’s integration with the country.

A group of Kashmiri Pandits met Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday night and apprised him of their views on the situation in the state. The delegation, led by Panun Kashmir leader Ramesh Manvati, stressed that the Centre should not accept demands for dilution of the AFSPA. “Security forces must be provided constitutional protection as they are playing crucial role in preservation of the country’s sovereignty,” Manvati said.
