Sharmila, who announced her decision to contest assembly elections in Manipur in August this year, had said that she would seek assistance from Kejriwal for the formation of a political party. During their 45-minute meeting, the two, along with deputy CM Manish Sisodia, discussed the political situation in Manipur at length.
“Met Irom Sharmila. I salute her courage and struggle. My best wishes and full support in her political endeavours,” Kejriwal tweeted after their meeting.
Sources said that while Sharmila’s own plans are not clear right now, the CM has offered all possible help to her.
