Was going through Balancing of Rights in #AadhaarVerdict. The court examines right to Privacy v/s Right to Food.

This is absolute nonesense. May be the over emphasis on privacy by petitioners caused this.
#Aadhaar is not an enabler (1/n)
#Aadhaar it is a tool for #exclusion . Its not something that guarantees right to food or anything. @UIDAI says they are excluding the ghosts, duplicates & imposters. (However, in practice, thousands of poor and marginalized are denied rations and monthly pensions.)
(2/n)
In concept or design, #Aadhaar 's purpose is not TO GIVE somebody something. Its sole purpose is exclusion.
So there arises no question of #Aadhaar enabling somebody to access food.

#AadhaarVerdict
The only 5 things we needed:
1) #Aadhaar is legal
2) Don't save Aadhaar#Biometrics or Copy
3) ANY legal entity in India can do an AUTH
4) eKYC only for Govt/Regulated Entities
5) Auth/eKYC record saved by @UIDAI for 180 days
#Aadhaar is legal and not unconstitutional
What constitutes Aadhaar data has to be clear - to me its only Aadhaar Number
& biometrics. My name, Addr, DOB, Sex, Photo are NOT #Aadhaar data-
whether someone got/verified them from UIDAI or not its NOT Aadhaar Data,
its *MY* data!
NOBODY can save Aadhaar#Biometrics or Copy (of Aadhar).
Nobody saves biometrics - non-issue.
The whole reason for the concern of linking came from the common ID number
the 12-digit Aadhaar Number.
Saving a copy of the Aadhaar Letter/Card should also be disallowed.

The #AadhaarVerdict is actually symptomatic of the principal battle being waged between the new BJP led by Modi and the old, corrupt establishment of Congress and its cronies. Congress and its ecosystem of compromised 'activists' tried all tricks to derail Aadhaar but failed. 1/5
If we wean away the various cloaks worn by activists, propped up by Congress, the reason for their vicious anti-Aadhar stand becomes clear. Aadhaar stops the gravy train of loot that greased the ecosystem from top to bottom, benefiting cronies at each level. 2/5 #AadhaarVerdict
Here is an example of the loot that would have gone on unchecked in absence of Aadhaar. And who benefited from the loot of this staggering amount? Middlemen who nurtured for decades by Congress at each level - from 10 Janpath durbar to a village panchayat. #AadhaarVerdict 3/5

Seems like it's a 4 - 1 #AadhaarVerdict.

3 Partial read downs in favor of Government.
1 in favor of Government.
1 Ultra dissent

Sigh.
This is good though. It means the Supreme Court has acknowledged that not all is well in Aadhaar land.

There were some major problems which have been rectified.
The biggest one is disallowing private companies to use Aadhaar data. Now all those techies who were supporting Aadhaar will slowly dwindle out. We'll be left only with the Govt in power defending the program.

If there's no profit there, why bother, eh? Waste of time.
