Q. The “Bru/Reang community”, sometimes seen in news is related to which of the following state?

[A] Manipur

[B] Jharkhand

[C] Chhattisgarh

[D] Mizoram

Answer: D

Twenty-three years after ethnic clashes in Mizoram forced 37,000 people of the Bru (or Reang) community to flee their homes to neighbouring Tripura, an agreement has been signed to allow them to remain permanently in the latter state. 

  • The agreement among the Bru leaders and the governments of India, Tripura, and Mizoram, signed in New Delhi on January 16, gives the Bru the choice of living in either state.  
  • In several ways, the agreement has redefined the way in which internal displacement is treated in India.
