Speaking at the 22nd Prem Bhatia Award for Eminent Journalists, Minister of Parliament Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda Friday said that “privacy ought to be a fundamental right but I am not against Aadhaar”.

The awards went to Manini Chatterjee, National Affairs Editor of The Telegraph, for her “hard-hitting weekly column taking the ruling party to task for its sins of omission and commission” and K Rajendran, senior editor at Kairali TV, for a “focus on climate change and its impact on the Western ghats and Arabian Sea, and the lives of fishermen”. The awards were given to two journalists in the field of political and environment writing by the Prem Bhatia Memorial Trust. Panda spoke about judicial, parliamentary, privacy and electoral reforms, emphasising that “one needs to talk about institutions rather than personalities”.

    When your fingerprint gets stolen, printed and used for aadhaar pay, cloning SIM and changing bank password using OTP, your aadhaar devotion will vanish. Jai Hind. 1. 25 lakh families in Rajasthan are unable to withdraw ration even after seeding #AADHAARFAIL with their ration card. 2. #AADHAAR authentication does not work for half billion Indians. 3. AADHAAR authentication does not work even after updating bio-metrics and waiting for 90 days 4. AADHAAR bio-metrics can be stolen, printed and used for #AADHAAR pay 5. #AADHAAR does not work for NRIs, people outside India 6. AADHAR can not be generated if a person's fingerprint matches with someone else's with 60 percentage probability. 7. Rogue government can deactivate your #AADHAAR blocking ur gas, electricity, mobile, bank account 8. AADHAAR works for millions of illegals staying in India 9. AADHAAR is blocking subsidies for millions of legitimate people 10. Take 10 lakh insurance for each #AADHAAR failure case/delete

    Aadhaar product is SEVEN years old, authentication still fails for "Half Billion" indians, millions of honest tax payers are unable to link aadhaar with PAN, UAN, etc. #AADHAAR's right place is in dust bin, it has wasted billions of dollars of tax payers money. When your fingerprint gets stolen, printed and used for aadhaar pay, cloning SIM and changing bank password using OTP, your aadhaar devotion will vanish.
