Sharmila, who’s on a visit to Delhi, cited the success of AAP while announcing that she’ll join politics.
She also called Kejriwal a great strategist and said she’ll take his advice on how to defeat the Manipur Chief Minister.
Sharmila ended her sixteen years long hunger strike against Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act on August 9 and announced that she’ll enter politics.
Sharmila will face her first test in March 2017, when Manipur will go for legislative elections.
