With a view to repatriate the displaced persons of the Bru community to Mizoram after they had to leave the state following ethnic clashes around two decades ago, a meeting was convened by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh with Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb and Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla.

Reportedly, a spokesperson of the home ministry said that the displaced people belonging to 5,407 families, currently living in temporary camps in Tripura, will be repatriated to Mizoram after almost 22 years before September 30 this year, following which all temporary camps in North Tripura will be closed in the first week of October.

The central government will provide financial assistance for rehabilitation of the Bru community members in Mizoram and address their issues of security, education and livelihood in consultation with the governments of Mizoram and Tripura.

Ethnic violence in 1997 had forced a large number of people from Bru community to leave their homes in Mizoram.
