It may have been reported to be a setback for the ruling BJP but the party today described the Supreme Court judgement on Aadhaar as a big victory for the Modi government.
This was in wake of the much awaited Supreme Court verdict which today upheld its constitutional validity but also asserted that it does not violate privacy.
Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Sambit Patra said the court has ruled that Aadhaar is safe.
He said that the verdict also exposed the Congress.
The spokesperson claimed that the Aadhaar was meant to eliminate Aadhaar to ensure that benefits are given directly to the people.
“We see it (Aadhaar verdict) as a big victory of the Modi government, the pro-poor Modi government. The Supreme Court has upheld the constitutional validity of Aadhaar and has also said that it does not violate privacy,” Mr Patra reiterated.>
