सेवाकार्य बिना किसी भेदभाव के सबके लिए करना है। जिन्हें सहायता की आवश्यकता है वे सभी अपने है, उनमें कोई अंतर नहीं करना।
अपने लोगों की सेवा उपकार नहीं है वरन हमारा कर्तव्य है। – पू. सरसंघचालक जी#SanghKiBaat pic.twitter.com/O8kd7hmfIT

Bhagwat said ‘130 crore people of India were all the children of Bharat Mata’ and this should be kept in mind. He said that there should be no fear or anger from any side and rational and responsible people should protect their groups from this. The RSS chief also urged the people to follow all guidelines and precautions while dealing with the pandemic. He also shared the relief works undertaken by RSS during lockdown. He said that the RSS was active during lockdown and its work had taken the shape of relief activities.
Speaking on economic revival, the RSS chief said that India needs to come up with its new model of development which makes the country self-reliant. He urged the people to use indigenous goods and try to live without using imported items. India has been heavily reliant on Chinese products and the RSS has been against it arguing the country needs to strengthen its own manufacturing to serve ever growing market. After COVID-19 which originated from Wuhan, many countries like the US and UK have been talking about cutting their imports from China.
