#KillAadhaarAmendmentBill in #RajyaSabha
WE HAVE TIME ONLY TILL MONDAY JAN 7th – 10 AM
5 Reasons you shouldn’t allow Passage of the AADHAAR and Other Laws (Amendment Bill)

CITIZENS OF INDIA APPEAL TO
@derekobrienmp to Consider these Critical Points
1. The Aadhaar Act undermined the Rajya Sabha and was passed as a Money Bill. Justice Chandrachud in his judgement in WP 494 of 212 clearly declares the passage of the Aadhaar Act as a FRAUD ON THE CONSTITUTION. Passing an Amendment to a Fraudulent Act is furthering the FRAUD
2. The Aadhaar Act has undermined democratic processes, worse than Cambridge Analytica – By enabling Private Parties in the ecosystem of Aadhaar to MANIPULATE VOTERS BY TARGETING SUBSIDIES – Benefits & Services rather than ensuring – NO ONE IS EXCLUDED

The Transgender Bill fails to plug the gap in the judicial protection of transgender persons who are victims of sexual assault or rape - thereby legally sanctioning discriminatory behavior and denying equal protection in law. #StopTransBill2018
The Bill also fails to recognize the need for appropriate infrastructure such as gender-neutral/gender inclusive toilets for transgender persons who face severe difficulties while accessing gender-segregated spaces. #StopTransBill2018
The Bill does not provide for reservations – disregarding the directions of the Supreme Court in NALSA to "extend all kinds of reservation in cases of admission in educational institutions and for public appointments.” #StopTransBill2018
