Aadhaar verdict historic, you cannot defy technology: Arun Jaitley
Union Minister of Finance Arun Jaitley hailed Supreme Court’s verdict on Aadhaar scheme. Terming it a historic order, Jaitley said, ‘Aadhaar’s concept has been accepted after judicial review. We welcome this decision of Supreme Court.’ “The challenge to Aadhaar and the Supreme Court verdict shows that it is a landmark verdict. The concept and legislation of Aadhaar has been accepted after judicial scrutiny and we accept it. It’s a historic judgement.” A five-judge constitution bench headed by chief justice Dipak Misra held that Aadhaar is constitutionally valid but struck down some of its provisions, including its linking with bank accounts, mobile phone connections and school admissions.
