Will Irom Sharmila join BJP?

The party should declare her as its CM candidate for 2017 Manipur elections to usher peace in Jammu and Kashmir.

Social activist Irom Chanu Sharmila announced yesterday that she will end her 16-year-old fast on August 9 this year and contest elections from Manipur in 2017.

If we are to see things from the BJP’s perspective, can we expect that PM Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah offer Irom Sharmila the BJP’s CM candidacy for 2017 Manipur Assembly election?

Can the Iron Lady of Manipur be declared as BJP CM face in the Northeastern state if her decision to break her legendary fast and join politics is exemplary enough to bring peace in Jammu & Kashmir?

She, as per news report, is eying for her birthplace – Khurai Assembly constituency – to contest in the election. Is she going to defeat the incumbent Congress MLA of the constituency, Dr Ng Bijoy, who is the former vice-chancellor of Manipur University and former director of RIMS Imphal?

If she wins, can she steer the Manipur Assembly not to declare the Northeastern as a “disturbed area”? If she loses, will she accept and respect the verdict of Khurai people?

If she believes that her electoral fight is to put an end to the AFSPA in Manipur, then, she, as an independent or a candidate of any political party, should contest against the incumbent Congress CM Okram Ibobi Singh who has been the main decision-maker to reimpose “disturbed area” in Manipur to maintain the AFSPA in the state.

Or, is she going to be offered Congress ticket so that CM Ibobi may not face an embarrassment from her electorally?

Will Irom Sharmila remain as a politician in an electoral active politics, notwithstanding she wins or loses in 2017?

Can the BJP explain why minister for development of Northeast Dr Jitendra Singh said, “Kashmiri separatists from Jammu & Kashmir should take a cue from Sharmila.”

Why is he linking “J&K separatists” with Sharmila’s decision to actively participate in Manipur’s electoral politics?

What has Sharmila done, other than by quitting her fast and deciding to join politics, which, according to Dr Singh, J&K separatists should pay heed to?

If the BJP views her as a ray of hope to usher peace in J&K, then they should declare her as their CM candidate for the 2017 Assembly election.

And, if the BJP does not declare Sharmila as its CM face in Manipur, then it would not be difficult to deduce that the saffron party used her to diffuse the current tension in J&K, where it has failed miserably.

  1. To those endless fault-finders

    Pointing out other’s vices/faults makes the other three fingers point at us which means that self-criticism is needed three times before we start pointing fingers at others. So the next time before you think of pointing your fingers at others,take a good look at yourself first

  12. Funny sha-me-la really funny why you take up such step that you can’t get success,do you think joining politics will solve the problem, no impossible you are never been a leader and want to be leader you are a selfish person , blaming the people does not prove you are right nonsense,why you sit for hunger strike and why you stop the reason is the same “man”that was u missed,now you got a Englishmen so you simply suddenly step down you don’t know yourself,one who don’t know oneself is call fool and one who knows thyself is call wise person better know this babe

    • Masisu maong amani eisu nangi wakhalga chap manei,chahi 16 ki manungda govt na magi issue solve toudana karisu kanaba fangkhide maramduna political ground ta tainabagumbani,this is call prank like drama

  13. One may note, her decision came as a complete surprise to even her closest aides – her brother & human rights activist, Babloo Loitongbam, or so I hear. If it’s true, she took the decision without much thought. Her rumored boyfriend is believed to be behind her change of thought. Amazing!

  14. Matam amada Bisheshor kouba ex- U.G. amasu vote lepkhibani ; Mahaksu karishu touba ngamkhide ; I am not betraying the efforts, Majority carries the vote in a house like state Assembly ; just reminder of a fact !

  15. she should have contested the election on last mp and yes fasting. if she wins and enter the Parliament with the nose feeding the world should have seen her and india govts silence should have been broken. now suppose if she fails the election or lets assume she wins the election , what can she do….. one honest man will be an odd person and cant do anything. her decision is not right ,i guess. now that she broke her fasting and in 4-5 yrs she will be forgotten

  16. WTF! why BJP or Congress or whatever?? let her stand own its own as independent candidate! principles and ideals of national parties won’t serve any good as the writer contemplate so shallow!!
