Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat said today that amid these testing times of the Covid pandemic, society must remain hopeful.

Taking part in a webinar — “Positivity Unlimited” — organised in the context of the pandemic, Bhagwat said, “The pandemic is testing our patience and character. We will come out triumphant.” He said India had come out of many difficult situations in the past. “We should forget our differences. It is not the time for fault-finding,” said the Sangh chief. Pitching for helping the needy, he said, “We have to ensure poor people get food.” Bhagwat called for caution and adherence to Covid-appropriate behaviour. He said the present situation arose as “we took things lightly after the first wave”. “Experts had cautioned about the second wave, but we became lax,” he said. On experts predicting a third wave, he urged people to be prepared for a good fight. “We have to win,” he said. — TNS
