New Delhi: Congress veteran leader Kapil Sibal said that the Aadhaar Act was not only unconstitutional but also against democracy. He also said that the party is of the opinion that Aadhaar Bill should be discussed in Rajya Sabha.
“There would have been no need to go to the court if they let it be discussed in Rajya Sabha. If they heard us back then, then crores of people’s data, which is now with private companies, could have been saved,” added Sibal.
“This was not Aadhaar Act this was 'Sarkari Adhikar Act'. It was not only unconstitutional but also against democracy. Today, the Supreme Court has read down Section 57 that gave people’s personal data to private companies. The apex court also said that that government can’t leak people’s data under the pretext of National Security. There’ll be a proper procedure which has to be followed," Sibal added.
