AIZAWL, May 31 - Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla has told Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh that the latest demands of the Bru leaders lodged in the six relief camps in Tripura would not be considered by his government, an official statement today said.
The statement said that Lal Thanhawla met Singh in Delhi yesterday and said that if the Centre accepts the new demands of the Bru leaders, those who had returned to Mizoram should also benefit.
The CM informed the Centre that the State Government pleaded with the Brus not to leave Mizoram during the communal tension in 1997 and efforts were made repeatedly to bring the bona fide Mizoram residents to return.
�Leaders of the Bru community in the camps did not accept the arrangements made for their repatriation and continued to make fresh demands and conditions,� he said, adding that the selfish leaders benefited by remaining in the relief camps and threatened those who wanted to be repatriated. � PTI
