Imphal, Aug 11: Following Sharmila’s unwilling to change her decision for joining politics by the contesting election, Sharmila Kanba Lup (SAKAL), the organisation that come into existence since September 8, 2008 has decided to dissolve with immediate effect.
Speaking to the media person the convenor of the SAKAL Oinam Momon said that SAKAL and people of the state appreciated the unabated protest of Sharmila Irom for 16 years demanding repeal of the draconian acts AFSPA.
She said people of the state have been extending support to her every moment during her protest.
She further added that her sudden announcement to end the fast protest has shocked everyone.
“ Every time she was released the state government SAKAL always asked her stand and she she always made firm stand saying that she will continue her fast protest until AFSPA is repealed, However, SAKAL was surprise to hear her statement of July 26 where she announced to end the protest on the ground that people are not supporting her protest anymore”, Oinam Momon said.
“Sharmila should know that SAKAL and the people of the state has always been supporting her mission”, Momon added.
Members of SAKAL including Oinam Momon however were skeptical of the recent decision to contest election made by Sharmila. Momon said that the whole episode seem to be a well plan by both state and central government through their agents.
She further added the decision to dissolve SAKAL was taken after meeting with Irom Sharmila.
Momon however make sure that, even though SAKAL is dissolved it will continue its struggle against AFSPA. Members of SAKAL now will join hands with Apunba Lup to launch a new agitation for total repeal of AFSPA.
