RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Thursday the newly formed government in Pakistan “has not resulted in any decline in its overt and covert provocative activities" in states like J&K and Punjab. He said it was “neither expected nor happened".

Commenting on the ongoing border skirmishes, he said, "The present dispensation in Pakistan has not resulted in any decline in its overt and covert provocative activities in states like J&K and Punjab... which was neither expected nor happened".

Secured borders are of paramount importance to ensure prosperity and development of India given the current complex international scenario, Bhagwat said here.

"Border security and internal security are issues of foremost consideration as they ensure space and opportunity to the nation for prosperity and development. 

"Fruitful efforts have been made to entwine the web of international relations by appraising the nations with our security concerns and getting their cooperation," Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief said.

While the government and the armed forces have displayed "clear intent to maintain peaceful and cordial relations with all the countries, including the neighbouring ones", at the same time it was necessary to remain firm and make prudent use of our capabilities while taking bold actions wherever necessary in the context of our security, he said.

For this, Bhagwat said efforts were underway to enhance the morale of “our armed forces to make them well-equipped with the latest technologies, which is one of the reasons India's prestige is rising in the world.”

He was addressing the much anticipated annual Vijayadashmi celebration of the RSS at its Reshimbaug headquarters in Maharashtra, also known as the Orange Country. 

Bhagwat said attention must be paid to improve the basic amenities of the armed forces and their families, so that they can fight for the security of the borders without harbouring worries for the social security and wellbeing of their loved ones.

Besides securing the land borders, the RSS Sansanghchalak urged the need to boost India's maritime borders in view of the dynamic international developments.

Internationally-acclaimed child rights activist and Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi was the chief guest for this year's programme.
