By Our Correspondent

Agartala, October 14 2018: The Reang refugees residing in six North Tripura camps has launched an agitation demanding resumption of ration and other relief assistance as they are facing food crisis since the government stopped supply of free rations with effect from October 1.

A large number of refugees led by newly formed Mizoran Bru Displaced Peoples' Co-ordination Committee organized a silent rally from Naisingh Para camp that travelled long eight KM upto Kambal Tilla.

Later a four member delegation met the Sub-divisional Magistrate Naba Kumar Jamatia and submitted a memorandum addressed to union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Copy of the memorandum was sent to joint secretary to the union home ministry Mahesh Kumar Sringla and the Chief Secretary to the government of Tripura L K Gupta.

Apart from demanding resumption of ration the memorandum raised seven demands as pre-condition for returning to their ancestral home in Mizoram. These include formation of a autonomous district council for the Reangs in Mizoram, five hactor land for each family, Rs 4 lakh to each family at the time of repatriation etc.

The Mizoram Bru Displaced Peoples' Co-ordination committee is not a recognized organization and it was formed only after a four corner agreement was signed which said all the refugees will be repatriated by September 30.

The Mizoram Bru Displaced Peoples' Forum signed the agreement as representative of all the refugees residing in the camps. The co-ordination committee was formed immediately after the signing of the agreement and opposed the repatriation of the refugees.

As a result of their opposition only 54 families out of nearly five thousand families has returned so far.
