With great power comes great answerability, UIDAI must understand

Asking for change is one thing, undergoing change another. One is easy while the other can be hard and disconcerting. It feels harder still when one’s sense of choice is taken away. Like the people who want government to get more serious about climate change, won’t necessarily like it if this means sudden big ticket curbs on fossil fuel vehicles. But a choice of fair-priced green vehicles and a supportive policy environment, rather than a coercive one, would be much more warmly welcomed.

So yes by the yardstick that for long the Indian commentariat has been asking for a streamlining of the social welfare process, so that it reaches deserving beneficiaries but cuts ghost beneficiaries and other leakage, it should support rather than challenge Aadhaar today.........
