Sonia Gandhi at the Aadhaar function recalls Rajiv Gandhi’s contribution

In a bid to plug loopholes in the implementation of welfare schemes, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi launched the nationwide Aadhaar Enabled Service Delivery from Dudu in Rajasthan, marking the second anniversary of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). While addressing the function, Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi said the Aadhaar scheme gives identity to the common man and is a tool to claim benefits. Explaining that the Aadhaar scheme is an extension of late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s long term vision, Sonia Gandhi said, “Rajiv Gandhi had a dream that the benefits of the modern technology should reach the common man. It was because of this long term vision only our country witnessed a revolution in technology especially in the telecom sector. The aam aadmi in our country have now been reaping benefits of the mobile phones, because of the policies of Rajiv Gandhi and taking inspiration from him only we have the Aadhaar policy today”.
