Manipuri activist Irom Sharmila, who has been on hunger strike for over a decade, was in Delhi for a court hearing and hoped to meet PM Narendra Modi to seek the repulsion of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act. She was asked to appear in a 2006 case of attempting to commit suicide. In court, Sharmila maintained that she is not on a fast unto death hitting out at governments for not implementing the Indian Constitution in the North East.
