AGARTALA, Dec 1 - The Tripura Government is holding parleys with key stakeholders of the Bru resettlement process with a view to ending the impasse over the issue.
Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Verma held a meeting with the leaders of the Mizoram Bru Displaced People�s Forum (MBDPF), one of the signatories to the four-party agreement, and Tripura�s royal scion Pradyot Kishore Debbarma here last night.
Although there has been no official statement from the MBDPF side, it has been learnt that the Bru leaders have agreed on the sites to be selected by the Tripura Government in a scattered manner. As many as 13 locations spread over six districts of the State have been selected for resettlement of over 8,500 families, subject to permission from the Centre.
In the meeting, Debbarma urged the Government to resolve the Bru resettlement issue at the earliest as it has already been delayed by six months.
Earlier, the Tripura Deputy Chief Minister held a meeting with the leaders of the Joint Movement Committee and assured them of looking at the grievances of the people of Kanchanpur and Panisagar.
