The Naga Students Federation (NSF) has condemned the Government’s decision to lift the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) from certain pockets of the region while allowing the act to be in force in almost all Naga areas of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur and Nagaland.
The Federation also questioned what yardsticks were used to lift the act when almost all Naga areas in the region has a peaceful environment.
The Body also added that the step taken by the Government of India has only added more salt to the wounds of the Nagas who are still reeling under the shock of the Oting incident where 14 civilians were killed by security forces last year in December.

The federation has also appealed the Nagas to refrain from extending any sort of cooperation towards the Indian Armed Forces or Para-Military forces until the Act is lifted from Naga areas.
NSF further added that the body will continue undertaking a series of democratic agitations until the act is repealed or lifted from the region.
