Irom Sharmila ends 16 year old fast

16 years ago when ten people had died in an encounter with the security forces, Irom Sharmila had started her hunger strike. She had adopted a democratic approach to protest thereby garnering support from people all across the globe. She came to be known as the ‘iron lady’. People of Manipur have a high regard for her. Political parties are now extending invitations to her since they are well aware that if she joins politics, there could be a major turnaround in Manipur’s political scene.
