The Assam NRC has always seemed quite insane to me.
What are they going to do with 19 lakh people? Disenfranchise them?
I am aghast that Assam NRC is considered to be something acceptable and normal and no cognisance is given to the pain, anguish, incarceration and death it has caused to millions. Why? You cannot criticise pan India NRC without criticising the Assam NRC.
Aarogya Setu was fraud from day one.
Fraud in the sense of an attempt to use the pandemic as an excuse to lay the grounds for monetizing health data.
Which is why everything about it from ownership to legality to actual operational conditions is buried in obfuscation.
⚠️ Aarogya Setu is not open source. We got a press release and some random code to keep the public distracted. The released code is not for the app that everyone is using. ⚠️ https://twitter.com/logic/status/1266905238306316290
The BJP Government is an environmental disaster.
Ok Twitter, serious question. How do we get national and international media attention to what's happening in Mollem Goa?
This may seem like a Goan issue but it concerns the environment, breaking the law and filling Adani's pockets. It will destroy Goa.
Post Retirement Planning for Dummies.
This is what institutional capture looks like.
"reckless aggression at our Northern borders"
Maybe we should start referring to "woh" as "Paku ke Papa..."
Three days after 2+2 meeting, US State Department amends its quote of RM Rajnath Singh, deletes mention of "reckless aggression at our Northern borders", replaces with the words "Due to the challenges that we are facing today, our partnership has become even more important... "

Game on #AarogyaSetuApp
Government Babus should have learnt by now that THEY'LL be the ones thrown to the wolves when push comes to shove.
Why the hell don't they smarten up and implicate those actually responsible?
Govt officials handling RTI takes the burn for Govt's Private Collaborations with no accountability.
Action needed on Volunteers from Govt listed on @SetuAarogya@twitter.com repo , starting from @NITIAyog@twitter.com 's @email@example.com
RTI is not Govt's image management job https://twitter.com/OfficeOfRSP/status/1322055739154722816
Basically, this is a Government gone rogue, and unchecked by the Judiciary and other Constitutional Institutions (who's incumbents are presumably too busy with retirement planning to bother about their core functional duties today).
Moral of the story?
DON'T trust this Govt.
As expected. Centre is delaying its response filing in Karnataka HC petition as well. https://twitter.com/OfficialSauravD/status/1322012706853908480
I vote for Scholar Sambhit Patra and Scholar Ravi Shankar Prasad...
Does the RSS HAVE any "intellectuals" at all?
Anyone capable of standing without IT Cell support?
A televised debate between scholars over days without TV anchors and loud mouths is one way to put them on notice that their BS will be challenged before the public.
Or are you scared to take them on b/c you haven’t bothered to study their arguments 2 counter them? https://twitter.com/sonaliranade/status/1321858120382140416
"Which idiot would pay a one lakh bribe for a loser aadhaar franchise, UNLESS he hoped to make lots of money from fraud?"
Link in next tweet.
Aadhaar Enabled Plundering System (#AEPS)
"Some persons, aged 45 years, got Aadhar cards showing the age of 60 years and had applied for pension."
"The gang used to collect ₹5,000 to ₹6,000 per fake document"
"Aadhaar will stop frauds."
Well, someone also sold the far more deadly (and useless) identity destroying aadhaar to Indians.
Please call that out too.
It's done FAR more damage.
(And yes, most Indians do seem to be fools to blindly accept such nonsense).
Aarogya Setu is a perfect example of how easily PM Modi fools Indians.
An useless app was sold as a panacea for the fight against Corona and crores of people blindly accepted it.
Is this expression now being copy pasted off a google doc or some template somewhere?
The Arogya Setu app, is a sophisticated surveillance system, outsourced to a pvt operator, with no institutional oversight - raising serious data security & privacy concerns. Technology can help keep us safe; but fear must not be leveraged to track citizens without their consent.
With FB, just imagine yourself sitting in public view inside a one way glass box (full of cameras and mics as well), and behave accordingly.
Or just quit FB.
