Nagpur: Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday alleged that "weak" policies of UPA government have emboldened China and Pakistan to make repeated incursions into Indian territory across borders.

"Dark clouds are hovering on our national security as China continues to test our mettle and patience by (carrying out) frequent incursions across our borders, besides dumping its products in our country," Bhagwat said addressing the annual Dussehra rally here.

He said, "China and Pakistan repeatedly intruded into Indian territory with the latest incident being attack on a police station and an Army camp in Jammu by Pakistan".

"Some Hindu businessmen in Kishtwar in Jammu and Kashmir district were attacked by a section of other communities who raised pro-Pakistani slogans," the RSS chief claimed.

He also criticised Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah for his statement to a European delegation recently that the state was only acceded and not formally merged with India.

Bhagwat also attacked Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar for coming out with a "pro-minority" directive to state governments and his "inept" handling of murders of some Hindu leaders in Tamil Nadu by fundamentalists.
