Voicing concern over upsurge in jihadi activities across the country especially in Southern states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, the RSS today said the nation is yet to see the impact of an effective policy to curb such threats to national security.
Addressing the annual Dusshera gathering here, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said extremist groups have presented a serious threat to internal national security. There is no visible reduction in smuggling of rare minerals from Southern coast (Kerala and Tamil Nadu).
The population imbalance in West Bengal and Kerala has been caused by illegal migration of a particular community from across the national border. The ruling parties in those states have adopted a ‘near surrender policy’ and that has led to serious threat to the life of local population besides law and order situation as well as national security, Bhagwat said.
The nation has yet to see the impact of joint plan of Central and State government in putting effective checks on these jehadi and Naxal activities, he said. Bhagwat rued that countrymen were providing shelter and employment to illegal migrants (infiltrators).
The social situations causing exploitation of poor and lack of development finally help Naxals in recruiting the poor youth as their cannon fodder, he noted. The veteran RSS man also criticised those helping migrants in getting ration cards and voter identify cards.
Issues raised by Bhagwat are relevant: Modi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hailed the Dusshera address of RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat and said the issues of social reform he raised are very relevant today. Mohan Bhagwat ji talked about important national issues in his speech.
The issues of social reform that he raised are very relevant today, Modi tweeted. Modi also gave an online link of the summary of Bhagwat’s address. He conratulated all RSS workers on the organisation’s foundation day.
In an address that was telecast live on national broadcaster Doordarshan, Bhagwat pressed for a complete ban on cow slaughter and meat export and urged people to stop buying Chinese goods.
He also said jehadi activities were increasing in Kerala and Tamil Nadu and alleged that illegal immigration from Bangladesh into the states of West Bengal, Assam and Bihar will endanger the life of Hindu society there.
The RSS chief patted the Modi government for initiatives on national security, economy and international relations in a short period of four months.
Speaking at the customary function on Dusshera which coincides with 89th foundation day of his organisation, he said positive signs are emanating that give people the hope that India is emerging stronger on the international stage.
