Mizoram Bru Displaced People’s Forum (MBDPF), an umbrella organisation of the Bru community lodged in six relief camps in North Tripura district, today urged Ministry of Home Affair’s Special Secretary (Internal Security) Mahesh Kumar Singla to arrange logistics for MBDPF leaders visit to three districts in Mizoram.
MBDPF president A Sawibunga and Bruno Msha said the Bru body proposed to visit Mizoram’s Mamit, Kolasib and Lunglei districts before the commencement of the repatriation process from early November.
“The MBDPF decided to send teams to visit Mamit, Lunglei, and Kolasib districts of Mizoram to identify the villages for repatriation under Final Road Map,” the letter said, adding the visit of the MBDPF teams was extremely crucial for the success of the repatriation process.
The visit by MBDPF would help in building confidence and trust among the Bru IDPs living in relief camps, it said.
The Bru body appealed to the MHA to provide necessary arrangements including security for the team.
The letter also listed out a number of queries and objections to Road Map-V for Bru Repatriation as prepared by the Mizoram government and also made a 14-point charter of demands for the repatriation process.
