Chandigarh: After Edward Snowden a few days back in his tweet had appreciated the efforts of the scribe of The Tribune in exposing the breach and vulnerability of Aadhaar data and information of the Indian citizens, the former CIA contractor and Whistle-blower has yet again in his tweet stated that the journalist who exposed the susceptibility of Aadhaar data deserved an award and not an investigation.
The journalists exposing the #Aadhaar breach deserve an award, not an investigation. If the government were truly concerned for justice, they would be reforming the policies that destroyed the privacy of a billion Indians. Want to arrest those responsible? They are called @UIDAI. https://t.co/xyewbK2WO2
