Santirbazar, Mar 16: Bru Socio-Cultural Organization in Tripura raised a demand for inducting a Minister from the Bru community in the state cabinet for their overall development.
Addressing a press conference at Santirbazar Press Club, the representatives of the South Muri unit of the organization drew the attention of Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha for fulfilling the demand.
Meanwhile, no representative of Bru community has been given a berth in the newly-formed cabinet though three ministerial positions are still vacant. Keeping this in mind, the Bru organization raised the demand and expressed hope that the Chief Minister would come out with a positive response.
On behalf of Bru Socio-Cultural Organization, Devidson Reang (president), Amit Reang (secretary), Krishnabati Reang (women welfare), Siddhartha Reang (cultural secretary), Rajesh Reang (youth secretary) and Dinesh Reang (treasurer) among others were present in the press conference.
They feel, the Bru people would be benefitted if the demand is fulfilled.
Meanwhile, a good number of Bru people displaced from Mizoram who took shelter in Tripura years ago were permanently settled in the state as per a quadripartite agreement signed between the Central Government, Government of Tripura, Government of Mizoram and Bru leaders.
Many of the resettled Bru people had also exercised their democratic rights in the assembly polls- 2023.
