Agartala, October 13, 2018: Reang refuges are spending days in uncertainty over contradictory reports on where they will cast their vote in the coming assembly election of Mizoram. In last several elections the Reang refugees cased vote through postal ballots from their camps only. But this time the question hunting them as no specific announcement is there from the election commission so far. 

The confusion has created due to recent decision of the central government to stop supply of ration and relief materials to them from October 1 which many interprets as withdrawal of their refugee recognition. The two organizations of the refugees are also appears to be in a confusion of the question. 

Despite this uncertainty some political parties reportedly started visiting the camps seeking vote of the refugees. Many of them instead of visiting physically has engaged some local organization or political outfits to campaign in their favor. 
It may be recalled that the 11,232 voters among the Reang refugees are very vital in Mizoram election as they are deciding factor at least in two constituencies Mamith and Kolashib. Among the refugees 8,777 are voters of Mamith constituency while 1,732 are voters of Kolashib. There are 723 voters of Lunglai district also.
