  1. I strongly feet that now that a national forum of eminent persons and activists has been formed to pursue the demand of Irom Sharmila for repeal AFSPA, they should also approach and convince that girl Sharmila to immediately give up her fast so that she can at least now onward pursue normal life on recovering her health as soon as possible and if this is further delayed it is doubtful whether her physique would permit such recovery in future. While fully appreciating her enormous contribution and sacrifice, the forum better persuade her to give up the fast and recoup her health and strength and assure her a bright future.
