The Bru tribe is originally from Mizoram. Most of these families were settled in Mamit and Kolasib districts. In early 1995, infighting broke out between the Bru Reang and the majority Mizo community. In 1996 riots broke out in Mizoram. The people of Mizoram considered them as outsiders.

I cannot tell you how happy the people of our Bru tribe are today. We cannot express our happiness in words. We all had to live like a refugee in our own country for the last 26 years. We suffered a lot, but we fought continuously. Now we will be able to vote as an Indian. Now we will also be able to vote in every election. Saying this, Bruno Massa, general secretary of the Mizoram Bru Displaced People Forum, got emotional. He said, the amount of thanks we can give to the state and central government for this is less.
