An initiative by a single person can transform into a mass action and people’s movement. The same happened in the case of Aadhar project of India or UID Project of India. Aadhar was formerly known as unique identification project of India. It is managed by Nandan Nilekani through unique identification authority of India (UIDAI).
Praveen Dalal has been the first and foremost opposer of Aadhar project and he expressed his concerns by providing the civil liberties aspects of Aadhar project. He maintains that civil liberties of Indians in cyberspace have been outlawed by converting the sole cyber law of India into an endemic e-surveillance code.
Since the Indian government is well committed to impose illegal and unconstitutional projects like Aadhar, Natgrid, CCTNS, etc, Praveen Dalal launched the exclusive civil liberties protection initiatives in cyberspace in India.
When asked about the rationale for the same, he informs that there has been a disturbing trend in India of imposing unconstitutional projects upon Indians by Executive with great disregard to the Indian Constitution.
In fact, projects like Aadhar, Natgrid, CCTNS, etc are “Fraud upon the Indian Constitution” where limited and regulated Executive powers have been transformed into absolute powers by the Executive. The role of Parliament has been completely ignored and eliminated in an Anti National manner by the Congress led government, warns Praveen Dalal.
It seems time has come to say no to the Aadhar project and UIDAI and put collective pressure upon the Congress led government to scrap anti national projects like Aadhar, Natgrid, CCTNS, etc.
