In his letter to the Prime Minister and Assam Chief Minister, Rio said : “This is a very serious development and draw histories from past incidents of the killings amounting to sinister designs of ethnic cleansing to drive and evict indigenous inhabitants from their ancestral lands, owing to their being a minority tribe in the State of Assam."
He also reminded both Manmohan Singh and Tarun Gogoi about his earlier telephonic discussion with them expressing concern and his letter dated June 17, 2013 expressing serious concern over the threats and ultimatum served to the Rengma Nagas living in Assam.
Rio offered to extend all cooperation on behalf of Nagaland government, and appealed to both leaders to intervene to ensure that the lives and properties of the Rengma Nagas living in Assam are protected and steps taken to provide relief to them.
