JAMMU: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Wednesday said he was committed to the revocation of Armed Forces Special Powers Act from the state in a gradual fashion.

In his address, quite unusual for the head of the government, on the eve of the Republic Day, Abdullah said his "government has set in motion the dialogue process through interlocutors who have submitted their report to the central government".

Abdullah said he has continuously advocated revocation of the laws which have been imposed in the state with the start of militancy.

"Since there has been gradual improvement in the situation with the passage of time and the process of improvement is going on as such my endeavour would be to continue to work for revocation of these laws," he assured the people.
