Thank you Supreme Court for supporting Congress vision: Rahul Gandhi on Aadhaar Verdict

New Delhi, Sep 26: Congress President Rahul Gandhi today described the Supreme Court judgement on Aadhaar as support to the Congress’ vision.

Reacting to the verdict, Gandhi also said that Aadhaar was a tool BJP intended to use to oppress citizens.

“For Congress, Aadhaar was an instrument of empowerment. For the BJP, Aadhaar is a tool of oppression and surveillance. Thank you Supreme Court for supporting the Congress vision and protecting”, he tweeted.

The apex court in its landmark verdict upheld the constitutional validity of the Aadhaar document but with modifications by 4:1 majority.

A bench led by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra ruled that Aadhaar will not be required for opening bank accounts, admissions in schools or for getting mobile phone connections.

While Justice D.Y. Chandrachud said the Aadhaar Act cannot be treated as a money bill and passing it as one will be a fraud on the Constitution.

“Aadhaar cannot be treated as a money bill and passing a bill as money bill which is not a money bill is a fraud on the Constitution,” he observed in a separate minority dissenting judgement.
