    CM Aadhaar heat on Centre

    [​IMG]

    Calcutta, Nov. 1: Chief minister Mamata Banerjee today raised a question playing on the minds of most Calcuttans yet to receive their Aadhaar cards: will I continue to get the subsidy on domestic LPG?

    Mamata’s outburst against the Centre came on a day the Aadhaar-linked direct benefit transfer scheme on domestic LPG came into effect in Calcutta, Howrah and Cooch Behar.

    Addressing a news conference at Nabanna, the chief minister accused the Union petroleum ministry of confusing people and sought the Prime Minister’s intervention.

    “When a government declares a policy, it should be for everyone. How can the petroleum ministry say that without the Aadhaar card, subsidy will not be provided on domestic LPG? They are cheating the people. The Prime Minister should look into the matter,” Mamata said.

    The Union ministry of petroleum and natural gas today issued advertisements asking consumers in the three districts to get their Aadhaar cards linked with their respective banks and LPG distributors to avail of the direct benefit transfer scheme.

    Mamata made it clear that she was not happy with the Centre’s decision to push through the scheme even though the majority of the people in Bengal were yet to get their Aadhaar cards.

    On her instructions chief secretary Sanjay Mitra spoke to petroleum ministry officials this morning to convey the state’s displeasure with the decision.

    Mamata then stepped out of her chamber to hold the news conference where she expressed concern over the fate of consumers who are yet to get their cards and questioned the process.

    “How many cards do the people have to carry? ATM card, identity card, APL card, BPL card…. They will have to open lockers to keep their cards. Should they wear a garland of cards? The Centre should provide one card for all such schemes,” Mamata said.

    In a Facebook post in the evening, she wrote: “Already, the common people are hard pressed by the restriction of subsidised LPG cylinders to nine per year. Now this Aadhaar card issue will be another cause of harassment to the common people.”

    The chief minister referred to the Supreme Court ruling that Aadhaar cards could not be made mandatory for people to get government services and nobody should be deprived of such facilities for want of the card.

    Well, she is right, there are too many cards that one has to carry around for different types of requirement.

    And the fear of losing any one of them, does give sleepless nights.

    Absolutely True !

    This Aadhar Card scheme is an yet another SCAM by UPA and Nandan Nilekani to cheat people openly.

    It took 8 months to receive that fcuking card post registration. I had to take a day off and stand in a all day long queue for the registration. Outrageous :mad:

    you are absolutely mistaken...every card which is now being issued in india is not foolproof.you can get a fake fake passport,fake certificates,and even fake pan card.

    AADHAAR is the only card that can't be faked as it requires your fingerprints and matches it with the database to issue you a card.


    mark my words,few years from now,govt of india will link virtually every programme to AADHAAR card and only the rightful will get the benefit.today using loopholes officials are plundering the benefits that are supposed to reach the needy.

    no more fake passports,no more ration cards to bangladeshis....

    And eventually your bank account would get linked to AADHAAR so now in future one cannt fool gov with less income and get away with income tax.

    second thing even bangladeshi can have AADHAAR card since it doesnt takes into account "citizenship" .It take only whether u are resident or not


    Don't issue Aadhar cards to illegal immigrants, Supreme Court tells Centre


    AADHAAR’S IDENTITY CRISIS

    I would not go so far as to say it is a Scam, but it sure appears that it has not been thought through.

    In fact, it should have been the ONLY card as 'authority and identification' for every action that requires so, except maybe the passport.

    Am I ? :rolleyes: Time will tell ...

    Aadhaar card scam unearthed in Hyderabad - Times Of India

    Aadhaar: time to disown the idea - The Hindu

    :rofl:


    I would agree with @anoop_mig25 on this !

    Moreover, what's the guarantee that, the next regime (if at all non-UPA coalition comes in power) will not disband this Aadhar scheme ?? ;)

    The so called "few years" is nothing but another two decades from now, if at all Aadhar scheme continues, even then 100 % cards will not be achievable, leave aside 100%, even reaching a 90% is a distant dream ! Mark MY words on this !

    This fcuking scheme will ensure that, all illegal, Pakistanis, Rohingyas,Bangladeshis and WHAT NOT will get Indian citizenship without any hassle :mad:

    Aadhaar's purpose in doubt as SC says it's not mandatory - Times Of India

    Aadhar cards not compulsory, says SC; Centre to bring bill to give legality to UIDAI

    In Mumbai, Bangladeshis get Aadhar Cards for Rs 2500 | Niti Central

    15 illegal Bangladeshi migrants held, one with Aadhaar card - Hindustan Times

    In Mumbai, Bangladeshis get Aadhar Cards for Rs 2500

    At last, time will tell, Aadhar scheme is a SCAM or a BOON !!!

    What you are trying to say is the actually desirable but Aadhar isn't the thing which can fulfill it. Aadhar Card has lots of loop holes.

    I think Adhar Card plan is already dead and would remain so unless there is some strong effort by someone to revive it.
