The names of more than 2,000 Bru voters were deleted from the electoral roll of Mizoram after their registration in the electoral roll of neighboring Tripura, an election official said.

Mizoram Joint Chief Electoral Officer David Liansanglura Pachuau said the state election department has received requests to delete more than 3,000 names from its Tripura counterpart so far.

In this, the names of 2,091 Bru voters have been removed from the voter list of Mizoram till date and deletion of the remaining voters is underway, he said.

The official said that the Bru voters, who were resettled in Tripura after not returning to Mizoram during their repatriation, were the voters of nine assembly constituencies in three districts of Mizoram.

Among the ineligible Bru voters, 1,643 are from Mamit, 187 from Kolasib and 262 from Lunglei district, he said.

He said the deletion was done based on the request sent by the Tripura election department to the Electoral Roll Officer Net (ERONet).
