'I will not adopt a reconciliatory position until the AFSPA is repealed' : Irom Sharmila

Tehelka.com | Nupur Sonar | March 5, 2013

Q: You have been fighting a lonely battle against the AFSPA for over 12 years now. Have you thought of adopting a reconciliatory position?
A: Although itís been over 12 years, I will not adopt a reconciliatory position. Nothing will change my stand and I will continue until my demand is fulfilled. Nothing will shake my resistance.

Q: What gives you the strength to keep going?
A: It is the solidarity of those who have joined me in my struggle voluntarily that strengthens me. But with the proceedings, it will be very difficult for them to maintain solidarity.
