Repatriation of Brus Depends On FCI Rice Allocation: Mizoram

Aizawl, Sep 3 : Detailed arrangements for receiving any Bru family who were willing to return to Mizoram had been made by Mamit district administration, Joint Secretary of the state home department Lalbiakzama said.

Repatriation of Brus, now lodged in six relief camps in North Tripura district, will be resumed as soon as the Food Corporation of India (FCI) finalises re-allocation of rice for the repatriated Brus as a free ration, Mizoram government officials said.

Detailed arrangements for receiving any Bru family who were willing to return to Mizoram had been made by Mamit district administration, Joint Secretary of the state home department Lalbiakzama said.

"We are waiting for the allocation of foodgrains by the FCI and we have sent a reminder," Lalbiakzama said adding that the union home ministry had cleared all other requirements.

A Sawibung, President of the Mizoram Bru Displaced People's Forum, however, insisted that it would not be convenient to resume the repatriation process during heavy monsoon.
