Targeting the Congress’s manifesto over its proposal of reviewing Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said revoking the Act would be equivalent to sending soldiers to the gallows.

In an exclusive interview with News18 Network Group Editor-in-Chief Rahul Joshi, Modi said AFSPA was necessary in Jammu and Kashmir to protect the armed forces and to keep up their morale.
