Chairperson of the Bhutanese Refugees Repatriation Representative Committee (BRRC), Dr Bhampa Rai, has asked newly sworn-in Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, to press Bhutan to repatriate “willing” refugees, Monday.

In his congratulatory message to Indian PM, Dr Rai made such an appeal on behalf of the Bhutanese refugees dwelling in the refugee camps.

“We have wasted 22 years in finding an amicable solution to this standoff. All our efforts to return home have failed, and we expect assistance of Indian government to put pressure on the Bhutanese authority to accept dignified repatriation of those willing to go home,” said Dr Rai from Damak, Jhapa.
