The Rashtriya Swayayamsewak Sangh supremo, Mohan Bhagat on Thursday urged the government to deal the growing Naxal menace firmly and opposed any talks with the outlawed Maoists.

Addressing the swayamsevaks during the concluding ceremony of the third-year training camp here Bhagwat came down heavily on the naxalite violence and opposed any dialogues with them. Expressing his anguish over the May 25 incident in Chhattisgarh, the RSS leader told the government to strengthen the forces in Maoist-prone areas it deal with the menace. He also criticised naxal supporters and sympathizers for raising hue and cry when armed Maoists killed in police-left-naxal encounter.

Bhagwat expressed concern over the alleged Chinese aggression and said that even after 65 years of independence, the government had miserably failed to set out boundaries and that has resulted in Chinese forces invaded deep into Indian territory as our frontiers looked helplessly.

He said, the Centre initially tried to dismiss the incursion as a small incident and was not paying much heed to it. The Indian authorities while downplaying the entire episode even vacated some of the area occupied by our forces to pave way for Chinese troops to pull out. “It seemed we are inviting our enemies to cross the border,” he quipped.
