Sharmila's PRJA awaits EC nod for 'whistle' as party symbol
The newly-floated Peoples' Resurgence and Justice Alliance (PRJA) of rights activist Irom Sharmila, who ended her 16-year-long fasting agitation on August 9 last year, has moved the Election Commission of India for granting the PRJA image of 'whistle' as the party symbol.
PRJA convenor Erendro told PTI on Thursday that the party has applied to the EC for being granted whistle as the party symbol and was "waiting for confirmation." The main reason behind choosing the image of whistle is "to awaken the people to end corruption", Erendro who returned to Imphal on Wednesday after submitting the symbol, said.
Meanwhile, the 'Ten4Change' campaign of the party has heightened up, mostly to "raise funds" as well as to interact with youths about the "need to bring a change in Manipur." PRJA has been holding rounds of interactive sessions, mostly with the young electorate, with a new concept entitled 'Ten4Change Campaign' where participants will voluntarily donate Rs 10 each to the party fund.
