In yet another development that shows that certain leaders and parties are against the progress of the country, the West Bengal government has challenged the Aadhaar system in the Supreme Court. The plea will come up for hearing on October 30. Earlier, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee had said that she will not link her Aadhaar with her mobile number. Such behavior clearly shows that some people want India to remain forever backward, so that they can continue to rule. Such people believe in spreading chaos and they thrive in the chaos, irrespective of what is happening with the country. The plea by West Bengal against Aadhaar will be heard by a Supreme Court bench comprising Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan.
Aadhaar is a great way to eliminate corruption and even leading personalities such as Nandan Nilekani have said that Aadhaar has already help the government save tens of thousands of crores and allowed the government to pass on subsidies and benefits to the needy people. The very fact that some people are against Aadhaar clearly shows their warped belief system and how much they care about the country’s progress and development. The future is digital and most world leaders and businesses agree to this. However, when the government is trying to increase digital penetration, some leaders are just not able to digest it and continue to protest at various forums.
