BJP MP Subramaniam Swamy has categorically opposed a move to make Aadhaar compulsory. He said that it would be a threat to national security and be struck down by the Supreme Court.
He said in a tweet he would write to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue.
“I am writing a letter soon to PM detailing how compulsory Aadhaar is a threat to our national security. SC will I am sure strike it down,” he tweeted.
His Twitted a day after the Apex Court said its constitution bench would start hearing a clutch of petitions challenging the Centre’s move to make the Aadhaar card — which carries a 12-digit unique identity number — mandatory for those wishing to avail themselves of services and benefits of government welfare schemes from the last week of November.
