THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: National secretary of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Mohan Bhagwat has called for a concerted effort by the activists in safeguarding the security of the nation.

He was speaking here on Thursday at a meeting, `Rashtra Raksha Sangamom,' convened to mark the conclusion of the 20-day-long Rashtra Raksha Sanchalan, a march, which began from Bekal Fort, Kasaragod, on January 5.

"Being secure is the primary aim of every individual. Same is the case with individual nations. We are living in a dangerous world. Our borders are not safe. We are surrounded by unfriendly neighbours. Pakistan is yet to forget its animosity with India. The activities of ISI are widespread in our country today," he said. "Preserving national security is our ongoing concern and it will not end with this convention," he added.

According to Mr. Bhagwat, a surge in population in Bangladesh has lead to large-scale infiltration into Assam. This has deprived the local population of their land and livelihood, he said.

The RSS general secretary also criticised the Government for adopting a `policy of appeasing the minority communities.'

The meeting was preceded by `Ghosh,' a band parade conducted by 5,000 volunteers from across the State. Noted personalities, including R. Vasudevan Potti, Sanskrit Scholar; Neyyattinkara Vasudevan, Carnatic musician; and Anandapadmanabhan, cricketer, were felicitated on the occasion.

P.E.B. Menon, State president, RSS, presided over the function.
