(Juhi Aishwary, Intern Journalist): The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to hear the petition challenging the Delhi High Court order in which it refused to order the petition seeking to link social media accounts with Aadhaar, PAN, and voter ID. The High Court was requested to give this instruction to remove the fake account of social media. The High Court had said that this would unnecessarily move the data of people with real accounts abroad.
A bench of justices L Nageswara Rao allowed the petitioner, lawyer and BJP leader Ashwini Upadhyay to make himself a party to the transfer petition in such cases filed by the Center in the apex court. The lawyer argued through video conferencing that the Center had earlier demanded transfer of such cases from some high courts to the apex court.
The bench said that there is no reason to interfere with the Supreme court decision. In this way, the special permission petition is dismissed. However, the petitioner is allowed to file an application to be made a party to the transfer case. Upadhyay had said in his petition that 20 percent of accounts on social media are fake or fake. It is necessary to detect such accounts and remove fake accounts. The members of the bench also included Justice Krishna Murari and Justice S Ravindra Bhatt.
Modi government changed rules on ration card
The food ministry has now extended the deadline to link ration cards to Aadhaar till September 30. This decision of the Modi government will benefit the crores of people amid the Coronavirus epidemic. The central government has taken this decision at a time when it was heard that ration cards not linked to Aadhaar would be canceled. Actually, despite the government’s repeated calls, so far there are crores of ration cardholders, which have not been linked to Aadhaar.
