AIZAWL, Sept 24 - Mizoram�s NGO Coordination Committee, comprising five major civil societies, today urged the Election Commission to take steps to ensure that those Brus who refused to return to the State from their camps in Tripura are disfranchised in Mizoram voters lists.
A statement by the Committee said the people of Mizoram had repeatedly pleaded with the Brus, who were bona- fide residents of the State, to return and the government had also made a plethora of arrangements for their repatriation.
However, the Brus were not willing to return to Mizoram and wished to remain in Tripura, the statement said and demanded that their names be deleted immediately from voters� lists of Mizoram.
The EC recently decided to conduct hearing in the six Bru relief camps in Tripura for special revision of electoral rolls.
The NGO Coordination Committee consists of Young Mizo Association, Mizo Hmeichhe Insuihkhawm Pawl or Mizo Women Association, Mizoram Upa Pawl or Elders Association, Mizo Zirlai Pawl or Mizo Students Federation and Mizo Students Union. � PTI
