Bru (Reang) tribe of Tripura

Syllabus subtopic: Role of external state and non-state actors in creating challenges to internal security.

News: Nearly 32,000 Brus living in Tripura camps since 1997 have been affected after the government decided to stop food supplies and cash dole.

Prelims focus: About Brus and issues associated.

Mains focus: Agreement in this regard and the recent demands for relaxation of the norms in the agreement.

Issue:

  • The Tripura government recently announced that it would restore food supplies, leading to the Brus withdrawing a road blockade they had set up for eight days. The restoration of supplies, however, is only until a deadline of November 30, within which the Brus have to decide whether they will accept a package for repatriation to Mizoram.

  • A bout of ethnic violence forced thousands of people from the Bru tribe to leave their homes in Mizoram. As many as 32,876 people are living in the refugee camps in the Jampui Hills of Tripura.

  • The displaced Bru people from Mizoram have been living in various camps in Tripura since 1997. In 1997, the murder of a Mizo forest guard at the Dampa Tiger Reserve in Mizoram’s Mamit district allegedly by Bru militants led to a violent backlash against the community, forcing several thousand people to flee to neighbouring Tripura.

About Brus

The Brus, also referred to as the Reangs, are spread across the northeastern states of Tripura, Assam, Manipur, and Mizoram.

  • In Tripura, they are recognised as a Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Group (PVTG) .
  • In Mizoram, they have been targeted by groups that do not consider them indigenous to the state.
