Phuldungsei village the bone of contention for the Mizoram polls?

AGARTALA | AUGUST 22, 2020:

The Tripura Revenue Minister, NC Debarma, said that the government has ordered an investigation into 130 individuals from Phuldungsai village, whose names are in the Mizoram village council polls.

"We have heard of the matter. We have already asked our higher official concerned to conduct a probe into the matter," Debbarma said.

Earlier Tripura Sub-divisional magistrate, Chandani Chandran, had written to the District Magistrate(North Tripura) that there is an "urgent need to demarcate the exact boundary between Mizoram and Tripura incorporating the entire Phuldungsai VC in Tripura".

Hence, the inclusion of the VC and its residents in Mizoram electoral rolls seems to be problematic," she penned a letter.

Phuldungsei village is dominated by the Mizo population of about 1,064 people, with ten villages on the Jampuiu Hills, under Kanchanpur subdivision in North District, about 300 km southeast of Agartala.
