New Delhi: Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari on Wednesday alleged that the Arvind Kejriwal government is trying to invade privacy of Delhiites by sharing their personal information like Aadhar or voter ID card number with third party.
Mr Tiwari was reacting to a Delhi government circular directing children to submit Aadhar/voter ID card number and phone number of their parents, along with permanent address, in their schools.
Mr Tiwari claimed that it has been stated in the circular that a data bank will be formed, but the purpose has not been disclosed. "It is to be considered that Delhi government has appointed a private company for the verification of the documents collected by the schools, which means that the personal information of parents of the children is being given to a private agency,” said Mr Tiwari.
Mr Tiwari alleged that the Delhi government is violating the right to privacy and personal information of the parents and other family members of the children, it is a direct attack on the right to privacy. "Chief Minister Mr Kejriwal must clarify that in spite of the information collected at the time of admission what is the purpose behind verification by a private company," Mr Tiwari added.
Mr Tiwari has requested all the parents that they should not share any other information with the Delhi Government except the information given at the time of admission so that Kejriwal government may not misuse the information about the parents and the children.
