RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has called upon swayamsevaks to continue doing their work by following the three-week lockdown implemented by the government.

In a special message aired on Wednesday, Bhagwat said, "The RSS has a way of functioning. It can be altered as per the needs of the times. We can still come together in small numbers, if need be, within our families, to pray. After all, coming together and praying is what the RSS (shakhas) is all about."

He added, "The swayamsevaks are studied in observing discipline for national cause. So, they can rise to this occasion effortlessly. They must follow the discipline that the lockdown mandates to spread the message across the country."

"Swayamsevaks have already stated doing relief work at some places. They can now take it to the entire country but by following the discipline it demands," he said.

He added, "Sometimes you may wonder how we can take our task forward if we are unable to meet due to the need for social distancing. Our mission is to create (good) human beings (vyaktinirman), sanskaras (values) and also imbibe the sanskaras in society. This can be done even while fighting this war against coronavirus."
