Sharmila to address global conference

The alleged violations of civil rights are set to dominate the huge civil rights summit in New Delhi on Wednesday. Manipur iron lady Irom Sharmila is set to steal the march when she would be participating in the opening session of the convention organized by the Global Youth Peace Festival (GYPF).
The summit is expected to release a general appeal to the ruling class and the people to honour the civil rights saying that the violation of civil rights would do more harm than good. “It would be our clarion call for restoration of civil rights and peace,” an organizer told Assam Times in New Delhi two days ahead of the event.
Sharmila, who broke her decade long fast recently arrived in the capital on Monday to participate in the epoch making summit of the peace crusaders.
Representatives from Syria, Liberia, Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan have also arrived in New Delhi to attended the event.
