Killer Aadhaar: Public hearing on Aadhaar and the denial of social security
While there has been much opposition to the invasion of privacy by the Aadhaar scheme, the systemic denial of basic entitlements to the most vulnerable citizens has not been highlighted with the same vigour. To highlight these issues, the Right to Food Campaign – Karnataka organised a public hearing on this topic. A jury of Ms. Usha Ramnathan, Dr. Sylvia Karpagam, Mr Clifton Rozario, and Mr K. C. Raghu heard the cases, while Major General S. G. Vombatkere and Mr. Narasimhamurthy served as witnesses to the jury.
