Aadhar seeding of Voter IDs not necessary: BJP

Telangana BJP President G Kishan Reddy has strongly opposed the Aadhar seeding of Voter ID cards which is being carried out by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.

Speaking to media persons here on Monday, Kishan Reddy alleged that the names of thousands of Hindu voters were being removed from electoral rolls in the name of Aadhar seeding. He said that he would approach the court against the GHMC’s drive. He said that there was no need to link Aadhar Card with Voter IDs.

Kishan Reddy pointed out that the Supreme Court has clearly stated that Aadhar Card need not be linked with any other government scheme. He alleged that the TRS Government has launched the Aadhar seeding drive fearing defeat in the forthcoming GHMC elections.

The BJP President accused the TRS Government of following the footsteps of previous YSR Government. He ridiculed the State Government for calling tenders worth Rs. 16,000 crore for Water Grid project while it allocated just Rs. 4,000 crore in the budget. He said even before initiating the works on Palamuru Lift Irrigation Project, the State Government has called for tenders to lay the pipelines. He demanded that the State Government issue a White Paper on the funds released for different welfare schemes.

Kishan Reddy also slammed MIM leaders for opposing execution of Mumbai blast convict Yakub Memon. Stating that terrorism has no religion, he accused MIM of linking Yakub Memon with Muslims. (INN)
