    The elected government is disobeying and violating the Supreme Court of the land and thus shows they are dictators and for them there is only de-mockery-sm of democracy for them. The judges of the courts are now being questioned by the criminals why they are only being punished while the government and the courts allow people like Mallia to enjoy after looting the country. The bureaucrats have sold themselves to the politicians, not understanding they are fed & only kept as a sacrificial goats for the emergency escape. They are ready to act as Safe Deposit Vault Ghosts for the politicians and in the process getting blackmailed for house search if one does not do what the politician says.
    This “Aadhar” is going to engulf the nation like Plague and ruin the social structure.
    Next the DNA , due to its poor lab.test reports will ruin the very family fabric of millions due to doubts in relationships.
    Kaliyug is fast nearing its end. God save the nation from these politicians.
