Manipur: Irom Sharmila officially launches Peoples' Resurgence and Justice Alliance (PRJA) party

IMPHAL: Irom Sharmila and her team officially launched a new political party called the People’s Resurgence and Justice Alliance (PRJA) at the Manipur Press Club in Imphal, early in the afternoon.

As per sources, PRJA is set to field 20 candidates in the upcoming assembly elections. Sharmila will contest in two seats, one at Thoubal against Chief Minister Ibobi Singh and the other at Khurai.

Manipur is a far more complexed state than most of the state in the region and for Irom Sharmilla the political test would be perhaps bigger than even her years of activism .
