Former Indian cricket team skipper Dhoni’s Aadhar details were allegedly leaked on twitter by the Aadhar providing agency. Dhoni’s wife Sakshi expressed her displeasure by tweeting the Information minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. But one person who had the predicted this event is Arvind Kejriwal. According to Kejriwal, he always knew that one day such leak will happen, so his government dint provide free Wi-Fi in Delhi, to restrict the spread of leaked details.
Dhoni is a public figure but his Aadhar card info is indeed private information, but internet doesn’t spare anyone’s private information. The leaked information circulated like fire and we need more men like Kejriwal to pre-empt such mishappening.
Our Funfunnykhez reporter spoke to Kejriwal at his office and he had this to say,” Eventhough I am the lader of Aam aadmi party, I don’t discriminate between Aam Aadmi and celebrities. I always knew that Dhoni’s Aadhar card details will be leaked once he applies for card. Internet is a cruel thing. Although I had promised free Wi-Fi in Delhi, I soon realized that free internet will attract more cases of leaked private data. So I had to prune the plans and now see, how right I was”
Other leaders like Mamta Banerjee, lalu Prasad Yadav and Sharad Pawar have praised Kejriwal for his foresightedness and have come out strongly against the digital India mission of the government. The leaders say that even with a low penetration of broadband, such leakages are happening, then imagine what will happen when whole India is connected by internet. According to the leaders, digital India mission should be discarded as it is a threat to private information.
Some people in Delhi have also started a signature campaign urging Kejriwal to provide free Wi-Fi and promised him that they will not use the internet to spread leaked data.
Well, we have to wait and watch if Delhiites will get their free Wi-Fi or will have to do with only political statements.
