Inspired by this tweet, I'm going to list out a few issues that should have gotten relentless massive coverage, Gormint should have been questioned constantly, but seem to have died down.

Or maybe we just got distracted too fast?

Here we go...
The entire country's budget was passed in 36 minutes without discussion.

Everyone should have collectively lost their minds but, after a short burst of outrage, we swallowed it up whole as if it's normal.…
42 years of foreign donations to political parties was legalized. Again, it was bulldozed through Lok Sabha without discussion.

The gormint didn't even think it was necessary to EXPLAIN to us why they did this. We clearly don't deserve answers?
A no-confidence motion has been pending in the Lok Sabha for two weeks now.

Simply put: a bunch of our representatives feel this Govt is unfit to rule so they challenged it.

Gormint feels its not necessary to even take up the challenge & ensure the house functions.

The Judge Loya case keeps getting murkier and murkier (Hats off to caravan for relentlessly following up).

Now it involves a shady doctor that allegedly manipulated the post mortem report & might have been rewarded for it!

Batshit scary stuff!…
Also connected to this, there is a plot being hatched to impeach the Chief Justice of India.

IF this develops further, it might lead to a full blown battle between our judiciary & legislature.…
There's something strange going down at the SC Aadhaar hearings.

From what it seems, the Gormint is not being able to provide reasonable answers to the questions asked.

This crucial hearing is now just lost in the noise somewhere.
Electoral Bonds are now available for sale!

It's the most non-transparent draconian farce in electoral funding EVER. Idea is to keep citizens in the dark while parties are bought & sold by corporates.

Almost next to nothing being said about this either.…
Mind you, all of these issues are those that can be RELENTLESSLY covered because there are new shady developments happening every other day.

Perhaps the effort involved is too much or the attention span is too less?

Anyway, #ICYMI
#PNBscam keeps getting bigger. Now, it seems like even the RBI was lax keeping a watch on this!
Can't even imagine what else the central bank turned a blind eye to.

ZERO discussion happening in Parliament about this. Been listed since forever but nothing.…
But this shit doesn't end at PNB, there is a new development involving ICICI Bank too!

Looks like the rotten filth in our banking sector is emerging slowly.

There might be SO many cases like these that it's hard to imagine who all are involved.…
In conclusion: Do not get distracted.

This Gormint seems to have gone into full crony capitalist dictatorial corrupt scum mode.

If we don't keep talking about these shitty things they are doing, nobody will.

Our elected representatives have been rendered plain useless.
There are folks pointing out I might have missed out on a few issues.
(SC/ST protests, Cauvery issue, Special package for AP etc)

Please feel free to add more things you feel are being ignored but are of vital national importance under this tweet 👇. Will RT.

Seems like it's a 4 - 1 #AadhaarVerdict.

3 Partial read downs in favor of Government.
1 in favor of Government.
1 Ultra dissent

This is good though. It means the Supreme Court has acknowledged that not all is well in Aadhaar land.

There were some major problems which have been rectified.
The biggest one is disallowing private companies to use Aadhaar data. Now all those techies who were supporting Aadhaar will slowly dwindle out. We'll be left only with the Govt in power defending the program.

If there's no profit there, why bother, eh? Waste of time.

.@CNNnews18 has counted tubelights and fans in Vijay Mallya's designated jail cell. Apparently they're looping "the video that will bring Mallya back"

One panelist keeps calling Mallya a Congress baby.

*slow clap*
While Rahul Shivshankar asks why UPA did meherbani on Mallya, Shehzad Poonawala on @TimesNow made an epic observation:

This @aajtak really has some next level promos.

You're still wondering why it's important to create a hue and cry about the Huffpost story?

Think about this scenario: A 100 folks from say, China, sitting in one room and creating Aadhaar after Aadhaar using a patched software which has geo-location disabled.

Every single day.
This is an actual national security issue of gigantic proportions. Mind is reeling thinking about possibilities of how this can be misused.

For all you know, terrorists in sleeper cells must have procured Aadhaar numbers and are living amongst us. Totally Legitimized by Aadhaar.
For a change all the chest-beating nationalists should be pouncing on this story and questioning the Government & UIDAI.

Where are you nationalists?
The country is being threatened!
For real!

Big story!

A patch that allows operators to create multiple Aadhaar numbers bypassing biometric security features has been found. Who knows how many fake IDs were created using this.

Now waiting for UIDAI to come in & scream, "THERE HAS BEEN NO BREACH!"…
This is a consequence of allowing random enrollment operators to create IDs, driven by per-enrollment incentives. They found a hack to maximize profits by creating multiple IDs.

This means that corruption in service delivery is still happening. Aadhaar is a total failwhale!
Whats worse, given this Government's epic push to make Aadhaar mandatory and legitimize it, this leakage and corruption of services has been LEGITIMIZED.

Now we know what UIDAI cancelled licenses of 39000 enrollment ops. They're now holding secret camps to fix these entries.

If the Congress did Demonetisation and we were in 2013, the media would be calling it the biggest scam ever done by a political party.

A 15 lakh crore scam.
People would be out on streets, Anna Hazare would be going crazy. Sibal would be giving Zero Loss theories, trying to justify their move. Ramdev would be screaming about black money.

Wait... we've seen this happen somewhere before, haven't we?
Maybe it's just my imagination.
It won't happen now because nobody trusts the media anymore. BJP has ensured nobody believes anything in the news.

The media house owners are still happy because they get to bank on a pro-Government nationalist sentiment to sell ads. They don't lose anything.

The people do.

Aadhaar through the ages.

A #thread -
Nilekani: Let there be an ID that is voluntary in nature & would prove to be an empowerment tool for millions!

UPA: Cool. Like a citizenship ID?

NN: Nope. Just an ID. No rights will be granted... But eventually... all citizen rights will be dependent on it! Get it?

Activists: Um I think you need to create a law. This is kinda big. YUGE project. YUGE

UPA: Let there be an ID which will be created by a random attached office in the planning commission!

Activist: Wait. What?

UPA: Oh hey, Planning Comm is doing a lot of PLANNING for this, OK?
