NGO to agitate, ask political parties to commit in manifestos to make Aadhaar voluntary

Rethink Aadhaar, an NGO campaigning against compulsory use of the Aadhaar for all public services, has decided to launch a nationwide agitation during March 17-24, saying, the campaign would be aimed at pushing politicians to take a stand on this in their election manifestos.
In a communiqué, the NGO has said, this is part of the efforts "to push parties to take a stated stance to at least ensure that Aadhaar is purely a voluntary ID similar to other OVDs."
Pointing out that a petition of demands on this has been drafted,” the NGO insists, “We will need to conduct at least one on-ground countrywide agitation prior to the elections, which will be accompanied by circulating a status update on Aadhaar exclusions, leaks, and other critical failures of the project.”
