Making the NE AFSPA-mukt

UPSC Practice recommends Making the NE AFSPA-mukt.

​​The law was first imposed in the form of the Armed Forces (Assam and Manipur) Special Powers Act in 1958 in the Naga Hills region (then a part of Assam), and later expanded across the Northeast. Over the years, Afspa has remained in force in parts of the Northeast, resulting in abrogation of various aspects of democratic and open societies.
