Agartala: Former Congress President of Tripura and Royal scion Maharaja Pradyot Manikya Debbarma demanded that the Bru refugees, currently suffering from starvation after the government stopped rations, should be accommodated in Tripura itself.
Manikya said, “We have become Refugees in our own land and it hurts me that we are in this condition because we are not united. The situation of my Bru people is grave and I have already sent 1,500 kilos of Rice, dal and other food items, as an emergency for them for the last two days, and today, more food items will be reaching them. I also urge other to help our people in this time of crisis.”
Pradyot further contended that if India can accept lakhs of people from Bangladesh through CAB, them why can’t the Tiprasa people accommodate and accept the Bru people who are originally from Mizoram?
