Imphal: Manipuri human rights activist Irom Sharmila, who on Tuesday ended her 16-year-long fast, on Wednesday said those opposing her decision have misunderstood her.
“They misunderstood me, about my real being,” Sharmila said while reacting to news of protests against her in Manipur.
Sharmila, who had been on hunger strike demanding the removal of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act [AFSPA], further rued that those who have been opposing her decision have failed to connect with her heart.
“They have been seeing me from their own version without connecting with my heart,” she said.
Speaking about her next move, Sharmila said her next plan is to enter into politics “for the power and choice to repeal this draconian law (AFSPA)”.
On being asked whether she had been approached by any political party, Sharmila said, “They (JDU) came here, even though I won’t join their party, they ensured me of their full support.”
While ending her hunger strike yesterday, Sharmila had said that she wants to join politics and become chief minister one day to help the people.
“I want to be the CM of Manipur to help the people,” she had said.
