Aizawl: Resumption of repatriation of Bru refugees lodged in relief camps in Tripura was on Monday proposed by the Mizoram core committee.

“Fixing of the dates and number of families to be repatriated would depend on the preparedness of the authorities of the Mamit district in Mizoram on the borders with Tripura and Bangladesh as well as the availability of fund,” joint secretary in the Department of Home Lalbiakzama told PTI today. A meeting of the district-level of the core committee would be held at Mamit town for the purpose, he said. The repatriation was stalled during the Mizoram Assembly election in November-December as the Election Commission felt that rehabilitation package to be given to the repatriated families would violate the model code of conduct.

Meanwhile, civil societies including student organisations urged the government to complete the repatriation process by February. (PTI)
