Last Updated: Monday, February 13, 2012 - 16:22

Agartala: Union Home Minister P Chidambaram
would on February 18 visit camps of Reangs displaced from
Mizoram and now residing in Kanchanpur subdivision of North
Tripura district.

Official sources said on Monday that Chidamabarm would speak to
the Reang evacuees and also to government officials of Mizoram
and assess the problems of repatriation.

More than 35000 Reangs are sheltered in six evacuee
camps at Kanchanpur after they migrated from Mizoram following
bloody ethnic clashes with Mizos in 1997.

The sources said a high-level delegation of the Central
government headed by Union Home Secretary R K Singh would
arrive here a day ahead of Chidambaram and hold meetings with
Tripura Chief Secretary S K Panda and officials from Tripura
and Mizoram governments to assess the problems of repatriation
of Reangs.
