Centre using Aadhaar as surveillance tool: Congress


    New Delhi, Jan 7 : Congress on Sunday accused the Centre of using Aadhaar as surveillance tool, instead of helping the poor.

    In a press conference here, party spokesperson Shobha Ozha said the government was linking everything with the Aadhaar and quoted Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘s tweet in 2014 ‘On Aadhaar, neither the Team that I met nor PM could answer my Qs on security threat it can pose. There is no vision, only political gimmick.’

    She said there was no vision and only political business, It was unfortunate that instead of checking its mistakes, the Centre was only penalising people who were exposing its shortcomings.
