IN many ways an open debate was long overdue. But now with salvos fired against UID by the Home Ministry, Planning commission, security analysts jurists and civil society. Now it is clear that it is patronage that has kept UID alive for so long. Patronage by PM to Nandan means the power equations are also becoming apparent otherwise how was the additional 100 mn enrolment kept secret for 6-8 months. Should it be retrospectively approved by the Cabinet Committee on UIDAI?
When so much conflict and rejection is going on within the Govt where Planning Commssion Member Secretary Sudha Pillai has questioned process, clearances and the EFC has also questioned the duplications of efforts and costs only now Much has been revealed about what has happened in a not so transparent fashion in UIDAI.
Can the supporters of UID/ aadhaar continue to unquestioningly agree to it?
