The ‘Iron Lady of Manipur’ will now be contesting the state’s Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh of Congress for the Thoubal Assembly seat. Her party will be contesting for three seats in the upcoming polls in the 60 member assembly. While major political parties, BJP and Congress had decided to campaign for the election on foot or car, Irom has been campaigning on cycle. Due lack of fund in their newly formed party, Irom has been undertaking online crowd funding to raise funds.

With the dates for the two-phase assembly elections nearing, political parties in the state are slowly picking up the pace of their poll campaigns. While, in this year’s election, Congress will be eyeing to gain victory for the fourth time in Manipur, Parliamentary Secretary V Valte and Nemcha Kipgen, the lone tribal woman MLA had quit the party to join BJP.
