Statement demanding Kerala govt to stop pushing mandatory aadhaar in its schemes
See this news item and attached order (in Malayalam) https://www.nationalheraldindia.com/governance/cpims-dual-face-supports-aadhaar-in-kerala-seeks-its-scrapping-in-manifesto
I think we should publish a statement because the CPI(M) has stand against aadhaar so we could ask them to fulfill their own promise.
CPI(M) mention 3 action items for aadhaar in their manifesto (https://www.cpim.org/pressbriefs/cpim-election-manifesto-17th-lok-sabha)
- Scrapping of the use of Aadhaar and biometrics for all social welfare measures.
- Seek elimination of the present targeted system and establishment of a reformed and strengthened universal public distribution excluding income-tax payees. No linkage with Aadhaar.
- Twelve LPG cylinders per year to be provided at subsidized rate with no Aadhaar linkage.
