Rahul Gandhi welcomes SC ruling, says decision a ‘major blow’ to fascist forces


New Delhi, 24 August(Wishav Warta):  Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi welcomes SC judgment on Right to Privacy, tweets “SC decision marks a major blow to fascist forces. A sound rejection of the BJP’s ideology of suppression through surveillance.”

In a landmark judgment, a nine-judge bench of the Supreme Court unanimously held that right to privacy is a fundamental right guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution. The verdict may have a bearing on the government’s Aadhaar scheme that makes compulsory linking of the unique biometric identity with bank accounts, income tax returns and for availing government benefits.
