Bru Migrants Rehabilitation Policy In Tripura.

Matter is simple. 35,000 Bru tribal people, who were displaced from Mizoram and are living in Tripura as refugees since 1997, to settle permanently in Tripura. The Centre, State governments of Tripura and Mizoram, and representatives of Bru organisations signed an agreement in the presence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah on 16 January. Now what’s the problem?The displaced Brus who returned to Mizoram have already begun demanding a package equivalent to the one those who stayed behind in the Tripura relief camps would be getting. And conflicts between the Brus and the local Bengali non-tribal people have started taking place in Tripura. The displaced Brus who returned to Mizoram have already begun demanding a package equivalent to the one those who stayed behind in the Tripura relief camps would be getting. Tripura government had identified a total of 3,600 hectares of land in 11 locations in list one for resettling 4, 900 families comprising 33, 000 people across the state. Anandabazar, Bikramjoy Para, Nandiram Para, Manu Manpui, Banchiram Pusparam Para and Kuki nala area under North Tripura district are the area. Teliamura and shikari bari also in the official papet. But according to the Joint Movement Committee equitable distribution of families in all the Districts and Sub-Divisions is critically important to avoid negative social, cultural, political, environmental, and ecological impacts it can have on Kanchanpur Sub-Division and government is suppressing this fact. Joint movement committee also demands that the maximum 500 families should be settled in Kanchanpur & Panisagar sub-divisions in the specific places which they had mentioned in the previous proposal. Government should maintain the social economical and political balance for the development and tranquility in the state.
