Irom Going Taslima Way?

February 12 2017

Known all over the world for her 16 years of fast-unto-death, Irom Chanu Sharmila of Manipur may be seeking greener climes. It is known that when she finally gave up her fast and decided to come into electoral politics, both the country’s spy agencies decided to spend their pockets on her and her foreign boyfriend, so that she could campaign and fund candidates of her party – People’s Resurgence and Justice Alliance – from all over the troubled northeastern state. But now it seems that her boyfriend Desmond Coutinho – who was instrumental in her breaking the fast – has made her decide to settle somewhere abroad, in self-exile, much like Bangladeshi author Taslim Nasreen. Apparently, the secret service money remained a ‘secret’ and never reached Irom at all, so her candidates across the state could hardly campaign. It is only Irom who is still somehow fighting CM Ibobi Singh from Thoubal but is on a weak footing. So is it that finally Irom will have her meals in foreign shores?
