Watch: Jean Drèze on Making Aadhaar Mandatory For Mid-Day Meals

    On many occasions, Dreeze has stressed the pointlessness of using aadhar. But his appeals had no impact. Now, the basic right of food to children is being linked to aadhar. This is pathetic. By linking, the rulers may have the long-term idea of surveillance and control on poor which is detrimental to democracy and violates freedom of life and liberty
