Congress condemns FIR against Tribune journalist

AMN /New Delhi

Randeep SurjewalaThe Congress party today condemned the FIR lodged against The Tribune newspaper and its reporter Rachna Khaira over Aadhaar data breach story and called it “witch-hunting” by the Narendra Modi government and “arrogance of power” at its worst.

After a January 3 news report by The Tribune over breach in Aadhaar data with a headline “Rs 500, 10 minutes, and you have access to billion Aadhaar details”, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has registered an FIR against the newspaper and reporter Rachna Khaira.

The Congress party said it was the Narendra Modi government’s “arrogance of power” at its worst and their intention on privacy was thoroughly exposed and “right to privacy” is mocked and flouted with impunity.

The party also demanded that the government should take “The Tribune” story into cognisance and investigate the matter.

It also said that instead of being a responsive government, Modi government has become a dismissive government and an oppressive government, which has launched an “all-out attack against those who are highlighting the loopholes in the scheme”.

“Intent and Intentions of Modi government on privacy were thoroughly exposed when it had proclaimed that no citizen can have an absolute right over his/her body,” said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala on Twitter.

“In Supreme Court, Modi government had accepted Aadhaar data leak! Now instead of investigating, an evasive Modiji shoots the messenger!” he added.

Earlier, he tweeted: “Shoot the messenger, Ignore the message! This typifies the culture and character of BJP government.

“FIR against The Tribune reporter is arrogance of power at its worst,” said Surjewala.

He also said: “Every Indian must condemn this mindless act of Modi government and UIDAI.”
