NAGPUR: There is need for constitutional amendments with regards to J&K, RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat said in hi Dussehr address on Saturday. 

National security should be paramount in dealing with the Rohingya issue as they were driven froM Myanmar due to their violent and criminal activities, he added.

Bhagwat touched on several subjects, including the economy, saying farmers and the informal sector needed attention, adding there was need to shed old "isms" and factor in ground realities.

His remarks — the condition of those living in a wretched state as refugees because of their decision to be in India and remain Hindu should be addressed — on J&K were seen in the context of article 370 and 35A (dealing with residency rights) though he didn't mention the articles by name. "Necessary constitutional amendments will have to be made and old provisions will have to be changed in that state. Only when the constitutional amendments are done, can the residents of J&K be completely assimilated with the rest of India," he said.
