Panaji, Nov 23 (UNI) Union Union Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Anand Sharma today said the issue of displaced tribals in Tripura will be taken up with the Chief Minister soon.

The statement was given by Mr Sharma after Director of the movie 'Yarwng', Father Joseph Pulinthanath, in his introduction of his film, highlighted the issue of the displaced people in Tripura.

''The film highlights the cause of the displaced people. The matter is of great concern. When I will reach Delhi, I will personally look into the matter and take the issue with the Chief Minister,'' Mr Sharma said after inaugurating the Indian Panorama of the International Film Festival of India, 2008.

The movie revolves round the large-scale displacement that happened in Tripura when the newly built Dumbur Dam submerged huge areas of arable land in the fertile Raima valley about 30 years ago.
