By The Assam Tribune

AIZAWL, Oct 12 - Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has approved Road Map-V for Bru repatriation in accordance with which return of the displaced tribals from six relief camps in Tripura to Mizoram is scheduled to commence from early November.

Meanwhile, the Joint Monitoring Group (JMG) on Bru Repatriation has decided that the amount to be disbursed among repatriated Brus under rehabilitation and resettlement package should be fixed expeditiously.

JMG member and additional secretary to Mizoram Home department Lalbiakzama said over phone the decision was taken at a meeting of the body held in Delhi on Monday.

It was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Home Affairs, Mizoram and Tripura Governments and Mizoram Bru Displaced People�s Forum (MBDPF).

MBDPF president A Sawibunga and general secretary Bruno Msha, who represented the inmates of the relief camps, were informed that all of them should return to Mizoram this time as the Centre is likely to stop payments to those who choose to remain in the relief camps.

The first JMG meeting was held in Tripura on August 30 and Monday�s meeting decided to hold the third meeting soon.

The JMG is headed by Special Secretary (Internal Security) of Ministry of Home Affairs MK Singla.
