Will one wear a “garland of cards”---Mamata Banerjee

Petroleum Ministry has created a confusion to deprive the poor people. They have made AADHAAR CARD mandatory for disbursement of subsidy on LPG cylinder purchase.

I am shocked with this decision.

Already, the common people are hard pressed by the restriction of subsidized LPG cylinders to nine per year. Now this AADHAAR CARD issue will be another cause of harassment to the common people.

It is the responsibility of the Central Government to prepare the AADHAAR CARD. Only 15% people of our State have got AADHAAR CARD. How will the rest of the people get their LPG subsidies if AADHAAR CARD is made mandatory?

It is also known that the Hon’ble Supreme Court has not favoured linking of AADHAAR CARD to disbursement of benefits under various government schemes.

We strongly protest this sort of arbitrary action on the part of the Petroleum Ministry to deprive the poor people of their legitimate right and demand immediate roll back of this anti-people decision.

For every matter, a new card is coming. Then how many cards will one have? Will one wear a “garland of cards” – Ration Card, Voter Identity Card, Health Card, BPL Card, PAN Card …?

I want one uniform card to cater to all provisions and meet all
requirements of the people.
हम मुख्यमंत्री दीदी सुश्री ममता बनर्जी का साधारण जनता के हक में लिए गए इस निर्णय और समर्थन का हार्दिक स्वागत करते हैं।  यही तो है असली कामरेशिप।
