Bru’s repatriation process irks

Agartala, June 12 (TIWN): The All NGOs Joint Committee (ANJC) is all set to antagonize repatriation process which would be conducted in this month of June or so. The ANJC will not simply call off the agitation unless there is no step was taken for proper implementation to the view of the Mizoram Bru Displaced Peoples’ Forum (MBDPF). The ANJC provided this information through a press release, this evening.

A meeting was held at Nasinghpara relief camp on Wednesday, chaired by the Vice President of ANJC- Sottoram Molshoy and other 53 delegates from various NGOs of the Bru Relief Camps. After that, the ANJC was unanimously passed the resolution to bring a concreate solution to the long standing problems of displaced Brus.

After a lengthy discussion about repatriation, it was adopted to express their grievances. These grievances are; the Communal Based Organisation (CBO) of Mizoram like YMA, MZP, MUP etc had earlier opposed and obstructed vehemently to the repatriation of displaced Bru from Tripura to Mizoram. But they are now very active on this issue and pressurizing upon the state government of Mizoram for urgent repatriation of bru IDPs with the submission of dateline from May 17, this year onwards to the Central Government and state government of Mizoram for three months.

According to the press release, the chief minister of Mizoram- Lal Thanhawla had submitted a memorandum to the Election Commission of India on March 03, this year which was against the Universal Adult Franchise given the rights of the minority people of the displaced Brus. The ANJC is in great surprise to know it, despite being such a top leader of the state government could have a narrow challenge against the helpless and innocent Bru displaced people rather than giving priority of chance for survival of the Bru. As a result, the displaced Brus are losing their faith and confident on the Congress ruled government of Mizoram as long as the state mechanism is controlled by the CBO of YMA and MZP.

It was also mentioned in the press release that the people of BRU are overwhelmed by the dominant tribe of Mizoram. Reportedly the present permanent residents of Bru in Mizoram are extremely in fear to disclose their problems before the officials of GOI and the media persons. According to the press release, the repatriation of Bru IDPs at this latest process is very doubtful because many of the families to be repatriated are already settled in Mizoram permanently and it indicates a black business as well as to demean the aspiration of the Bru displaced people languishing in the seven relief camps of North Tripura.
