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.
