On Sunday, Manipur CM N Biren Singh said that he and the people of the poll-bound state wanted the withdrawal of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, reported PTI.

However, in an interview, a BJP leader added that national security was still the top priority. “I believe AFSPA can be lifted gradually with the consent of the central government,” Singh said. “But, we must remember there is no political stability in Myanmar, and we share the border with that nation.”
