Conflicts broke out between Tripura police authorities and local people of Dolubari town of North Tripura area on Saturday over the proposed restoration of Bru outcasts from Mizoram. Dissidents put a match to vehicles and impeded the public parkway which drove police authorities to shoot poisonous gas shells to scatter the nonconformists.
A few neighborhood associations under the Joint Movement Committee (JMC) were challenging the resettlement of Bru-Reang evacuees in Kanchanpur sub-division and they had requested that the state government resettle the individuals from the dislodged network similarly among Tripura’s eight locales. They had likewise required a districtwide closure on November 16.
The Brus are an uprooted network that has been living over a few help camps in Tripura and Mizoram since 1997 after ethnic conflicts broke out between Mizo clans and Brus. Near 30,000 Bru tribals had fled the state because of the pressures in Mizoram.
The cycle to resettle the Bru people group had started in 2009 by the administrations of Tripura and Mizoram yet didn’t bring about any achievement. In November 2018 Center chose to resettle Bru exiles in Mizoram yet because of fights by the Bru people group that arrangement was too left unimplemented.
