"Deb would discuss the Reang tribal refugees' repatriation to Mizoram with the Union Home Minister," the official added.

About 32,857 Reang tribals comprising 5,413 families - locally known as 'Bru' -- have been living in the six makeshift camps in north Tripura's Kanchanpur and Panisagar sub-divisions, adjoining Mizoram, since October 1997 after they fled their homes in western Mizoram following ethnic strife.
