Highly misused PSA will be removed within days if NC comes to power, says Omar

Omar Abdullah, the Vice President of the National Conference on Monday said if his party comes to power, within days the Public Safety Act will go.

Addressing a rally in Bandipora, Omar said, “In our tenure from 2009-14, we attempted to bring some relaxation in PSA Act. We had removed the toughest parts from it but still today it is being highly misused.”

He added that this time the law will not be relaxed but removed forever.

“Even today so many youths, our elders are struggling in prisons. I had tried that this Act not be misused but my attempts didn’t materialise completely. Now this time we have decided not to relax the law but remove it completely from the books of law.”

“Take this in written from me, if National conference is given a mandate, within days Public Saftey Act will go forever,” Omar said.
