Why is this govt bent on destroying the environment?

The CharDham project entails massive deforestation and destruction of mountain slopes which would cause IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE to the environment. It is a complete disaster in the making.
This project is just not needed at all but just for the fanatics to prove a point !

The region is already unstable (even without a road project). The rock quality is supposedly very poor and just not fit for any settlements.
By breaking up the 900 km project into smaller ones the devious govt has successfully circumvented environmental impact assessment!
And land acquisition norms, which had been made tough by the Congress, have been eased by this narcissistic govt to enable such purposeless projects

Why the digital healthcare mission should be opposed?

It covers “personal and sensitive personal data” like financial details, physical and mental health, sex life, medical records, gender and sexuality, caste, religious and political beliefs, genetic and biometric records.
Data is to be stored at three levels – Central, state or UT and health facility. It claims ownership of personal data lies with the individual. However, anonymised data, in an aggregated form, may be made available for research, statistical analysis and policy formulation.
The digital health mission has already raised ethical concerns, scepticism that collecting more data is not the answer to India’s health problems and suspicion that such a system is tailored for corporate interests rather than providing affordable healthcare.
