New Delhi, Sep 26 (ANI): Union Law and Justice Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday praised the Supreme Court’s verdict on Aadhaar scheme. The Union Minister said, “It’s a historic judgment. The Supreme Court has clearly said Aadhaar doesn’t lead to any kind of surveillance. Aadhaar is constitutionally valid, it empowers the poor with dignity. They have even upheld Aadhaar’s linking with PAN card.” Responding to Rahul Gandhi’s stand against Aadhaar, he said that Rahul should read the Supreme Court judgment. He further said that under former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh this was not even a law, and crores of biometrics were taken without a proper law.
