That Irom Sharmila lost is the biggest blow. She gave up everything for Manipur and Manipur ignored her.— Kewrious (@Kewrious) March 11, 2017
@pramatheshb I knew she was not winning, bt only 90 votes, is that all she earned in years?— Trisha Gupta (@Being_Outspoken) March 11, 2017

Irom Sharmila fasted for 5840 days and received only 90 votes for her sacrifice. Let that sink in.— Mayukh Majumdar (@themayukhsutra) March 11, 2017
It's time for you to live for yourself, Irom Sharmila. You have done enough for the people of Manipur. They don't even deserve you.— Tesla (@teslaholic) March 11, 2017
