Manipur's famous human rights crusader Irom Chanu Sharmila is busy these days campaigning in Thoubal - the assembly constituency that three-time Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh of the Congress represents. Ms Sharmila, 44, who recently launched her political party Peoples' Resurgence And Justice Alliance (PRAJA), is contesting against the 68-year-old Chief Minister. NDTV caught up with Ms Sharmila during her campaign as she spoke at length on why she is taking a plunge into politics, why she turned down an offer from the BJP and also her take on the economic blockade that has paralysed the state.
