Bruno Msha, General Secretary of Mizoram Bru Displaced Peoples’ Forum (MBDPF) seeks confidence against the certificates as part of their resettlement from Chief Secretary Manoj Kumar in a letter on November 10.
Msha wrote , “ ..I , therefore request you and to instruct the concerned authority ( DM, North Tripura District and SDM Kanchanpur Sub-Division & Panisagar Sub-Division, North Tripura District) with immediate effect to issue us the Scheduled Tribe (ST) Certificate and Permanent Resident of Tripura Certificate ( PRTC) during the ongoing process of resettlement”.
For around two decades, over 32,000 Bru migrants have been residing at six relief camps located at Kanchanpur and Panisagar sub divisions in North District after their escape from an ethnic clash in Mizoram in 1997.
An agreement was signed in January by the Centre with Governments of Tripura and Mizoram and the Bru migrants for their lasting stay in Tripura. An INR of 600 crores package was announced by the Centre for their settlement in a different place.
Union home minister Amit Shah also received a letter from the Bru migrants regarding the protests against their resettlement in Tripura.
