KANCHANPUR: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said he wants a respectable solution to the problem of repatraition of over 31000 displaced Brus sheltering in Tripura for over 17 years.    

Singh, who visited the Bru evacuee camps here and spoke to the displaced people, said he has spoken to Tripura government and will also speak to Mizoram government on the issue.

He also visited the Khanthlang border outpost and spoke to the BSF personnel there.   

A 10-point charter of demands was handed over to him by Mizo Bru Displacement Forum representative Bruno Mesha, who demanded Kashmiri Pandit-like status to the Bru evacuees in Tripura.       

There are over 31,000 Brus in six evacuee camps in Kanchanpur sub-division of North Tripura district. They had fled their ancestral homes in Mizoram and have been staying here since October 1997.      

Singh is scheduled to hold a meeting with Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar and Mizoram Chief Minister Lalthanhawla in Agartala today for the repatriation of the Brus.
