The AFSPA is a MUST keep the 15 odd anti national secessionist insurgent groups operating in Manipur from getting out of hand.
The Army, Assam Rifles ,BSF and the CRPF are performing a very challanging but THANKLESS job in Manipur/Nagaland since the last couple of decades. They are targetted by the militants who enjoy political, police and local support.
The media and the human rights group remain mute spectators when the armed forces personnel are ambushed /killed by the insurgents. But when the insurgents die, there is national uproar...What a sorry state of affairs.
