Giving her first interview after breaking her epic 16-year-long fast, human rights activist Irom Sharmila on August 10 said that she won’t head back home till her demand of repealing the 1958 law is met.
Speaking on her decision, the Iron Lady of Manipur said that the people of Manipur don’t understand her, but maybe the people of India will.
She was reportedly even heckled in Shamu Makhong area on August 9 after she decided to end her fast.
At present Sharmila wants people to know her as a normal person and she has even made her ambitions about becoming Chief Minister of Manipur clear.
With this, Irom aims to bring a positive change in not just Manipur but the world.
