Q.

The Iron Lady of Manipur Irom Chanu Sharmila has been on a fast for 7 long years as a protest against AFPSA in manipur. Her protest is the longest political protest in any part of the world.

My question is why her Satyagraha is not drawing as much interest as Gandhi ji's.... Is it because it is against our own ppl and not an outsider or something else?

The Manipur insurgency first took shape sometime around 1964 and immediately after their Statementhood, rebellion broke out in full force with the formation of the various insurgent groups like PLA, PREPAK etc.
