By Our Correspondent

Agartala, January 17,2019 : Relief operations in the seven Reang refugee camps spread over Kanchanpur subdivision and Panisagar areas will continue till March 31. The distribution of relief materials in the form of foodgrains and cash doles among the refugees encamped in Kanchanpur and Panisagar was to stop on January 16. But a communication from R.N.Mins , joint secretary in the central ministry of home affairs reached Tripura chief secretary L.K.Gupta on January 15 asking him to continue the relief operations till March 31.  " It has been decided with the approval of competent authority to extend the deadline for repatriation of Bru migrants from Tripura till 31st March 2019. The assistance to them in the form of foodgrains and cash doles may also continue" the letter from union home ministry said.

Official sources here said that the extension of the deadline for repatriation also means longer stay of the refugees till the next date and possibly beyond the loksabha elections as by the next deadline the loksabha election process will have started in full swing. The Bru refugees had arrived here since October 15 1997 and have been staying in the camps of north Tripura, refusing to the be repatriated to Mizoram, their homeland, despite rehabilitation package announced several times by the union home ministry and persuasion by the Mizoram state government.
