By Newmai News

AIZAWL, June 7 � Even as no one from the 7th batch of Reang (Bru) refugees turned up for the first phase of identification during June 2-4 at Kaskau Camp, the Mizoram Government has decided to continue with the process of identification which is part of the repatriation.

The identification of the Bru refugees who are now living in Tripura transit camps shall be continued as scheduled, an official statement here said.

The appointed identification team will carry out their task at Khakchangpara camp during June 15-18, the statement said. The identification is to be conducted in each of the refugee camps and the entire process of repatriation is expected to be over in September.

As per earlier tripartite talks between Mizoram Government, Mizoram Bru Displaced People�s Forum (MBDPF) and Tripura Government, identification of bonafide residents of Mizoram for repatriation started at the Kaskau camp from June 2 but not a single family turned up.

The Mizoram Government have made arrangements for resumption of repatriation of Brus from the six relief camps in Tripura and proposed to repatriate more than 3,500 families.

The preparations came after the Supreme Court instructed both the Centre and the Mizoram Government to repatriate all the Brus within six months.

�We did not go because what is the use in returning as we will not be secure and have no land to cultivate there. After two years when the package will be over who will look after us,� said an inmate Parvati Reang.
