New Delhi, January 02 (KMS): Senior Congress leader, P Chidambaram has criticised the Modi-led government over extension of Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in Nagaland and termed it as an apt example of “double speak”.

P Chidambaram in a series of tweets, wrote, “On the one hand, the MHA (Ministry of Home Affairs) announced a Committee to review the need to apply AFSPA in Nagaland. On the other, the MHA declared the whole of Nagaland as a ‘disturbed area’ and extended the application of AFSPA.”
