Hours after Thoubal handed her just 90 votes, Manipur's Iron Lady Irom Sharmila - who conducted a 16-year hunger strike demanding the withdrawal of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act or AFSPA --- said she would quit active politics and travel south to "calm" her mind. Barely 24 hours ago, the feisty activist had said she would "try again" in the national elections of 2019 if she lost her contest against Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh in Thoubal.
