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.
