A joint body of six Mizo organizations and a local civil society group in North Tripura district has called for an indefinite bandh in Kanchanpur subdivision from Wednesday to press for their three point charter of demands.

The demands include immediate resumption of relief to 93 displaced families in Anandabazar area under the sub- division.

The families are living in Anandabazar police station since December 10 last after being forced to flee their homes during violent agitation by anti-CAA protesters.

The other demands include rehabilitation package for Bengali families allegedly displaced from their households by the Brus” in north Tripura since 2000 and rehabilitation for Mizo families allegedly displaced in Jampui hills and its vicinity.

President of the civic society body ”Nagarik Suraksha Mancha” Ranjit Kumar Nath alleged that the victims staying in police station were evicted from their homes when anti-CAA protesters burnt shops and vandalised their homes at Anandabazaar village on December 10.

“Each victim was given Rs 6 as subsistence every day, but that was stopped since the last seven days. They are now facing an acute food crisis. We demand immediate relief and proper rehabilitation package for them,” Nath said.

The Bengali families, who were allegedly displaced from their homes since 2000 till 2019 should be given rehabilitation package, he said.

The Mizo organizations also demanded similar package for ethnic Mizo families living in Sakhan Shermun village and Jampui Hills in North Tripura district.

The Mizo organizations that have teamed up with Nagarik Suraksha Mancha are Mizo Convention, Young Mizo Association, MCW, and Mizo Forum. All these organisations are based in Jampui Hills range.

Mizo Convention general secretary Panchulla Sailo said, the Mizo bodies and the Nagarik Suraksha Mancha are now united because the organizations are agitating for the same cause.
