Bru-Reangs can now settle in the state of Tripura under the agreement signed on 17 January 2020 between the Indian government, the two national governments and representatives of Bru-Reangs. They will receive all the possibilities of central government and state programs like other people in Tripura. Under the agreement, the Bru families, who will continue to live in six relief camps in Tripura after November 30, 2019, will be permanently settled in the state and those who have already returned to Mizoram should not be allowed to return to Tripura. The head of state student, Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP), thanked the Centre, the governments of Mizoram and Tripura as well as various NGOs for their efforts towards the signing of the Bru Agreement. To end the refugee crisis in 23-year-old Bru Reang, an agreement known as the Bru Reang Agreement was signed. The details of the agreement include 40*30 m² of residential properties for each displaced family, a fixed deposit of 4 Lakh Rupees, aid of 5,000 cash per month for 2 years, rupees 1.5 lakhs for building houses and free rations for 2 years from the date of relocation. In order to determine the number of people who will be settled, a new survey and physical verification of Bru families living in relief camps would be carried out. The Central Young Mizoram Association (CYMA), the largest civil organization in Mizoram, said in a statement that it was pleased with the signing of the agreement that more than 30,000 Bru who fled Mizoram in 1997 will be permanently settled in Tripura. The Land Government must ensure that the quadrilateral agreement is implemented in letter and spirit. However, the same agreement, which provides for the resettlement of refugees from Bru to Tripura, must also be implemented taking into account the interests of non-Brus, in order to avoid a conflict between the Bru and non-Bru communities.
The center sanctioned about 600 Crore as a comparison package, Shah said Thursday. Under the new agreement, refugees from Bru will be settled in Tripura. They enjoy all the rights enjoyed by residents of the state, including the social systems both of the centre and of the governments of the Länder. . . .
