The Joint movement committee of Jampui Hill Mizo Convention and Kanchanpur Nagarik Suraksha Mancha has entered its second day of a hunger strike against the government. The committee has staged the hunger strike in protest of the Government decisons of resettling the brus without taking locals into consideration.

Incidences of the bru people involved in several anti social activities have earned bad reputation among them

"As we are original inhabitants of the land, the government must accept us as most vital stakeholders and as a solution; and not see us as problems. It must create room for dialogue for successful joint problem solving of the long-standing Mizoram Bru problems," said Dr Zairemthiama Pachuau, chairman of the Joint Movement Committee and General Secretary of Mizo Convention.

It has to be mentioned that during the anti CAA movements, bru inhabitants of the relief camp have been involved in instigating and participating in violence.
